The concept of the smart device is growing rapidly. From phones to houses, everything is smart. Smartphones, smart cars, smart houses, etc.
Talking about the smartphone, we have lots of companies competing with each other. As the concept of the smartphone is not so long, the hype began after the Apple launched its first ever iPhone back in 2007. Then after Samsung, Huawei, HTC, Sony, etc. came along.
On the competition, the Chinese smartphones are leading, only in terms of production. But still, the Korean company Samsung and American company Apple are the market leaders in terms of sale and revenue. However, Chinese companies like Huawei, ZTE, Xiaomi, etc. are emerging slowly.
Today, another Chinses company is entering in the Nepalese smartphone business – ZOPO. Sounds familiar! Don’t get confused, its ZOPO not OPPO. Oppo is also a Chinese phone who has just entered in the Nepalese market and the Zopo is also about to show themselves here.
Apex Digital has taken the responsibility to launch 4 different Zopo smartphone here in Nepal and will launch soon. List are as follows:
Zopo color F2.

Zopo Speed 7 Plus
This is just an upgrade to Speed 7 smartphone. The internal specification is pretty much similar to Speed 7. Although, it has some difference in software features and battery capacity. Like, there is more gestures sensing, smart awake and tab to wake features. And now, the system is power backed by the 3000mAh battery. It is bigger by 0.5” to its predecessor and CPU is Mali-T720.
You go to the market to buy a Smartphone, setting a particular phone in the mind, when you reach in the shop you see tons of companies and their phones. You get confused and come back without buying anything. I mean sometimes get so overwhelmed that you will not be able to decide which phone to buy.
We have already seen Oppo and its time for Zopo and hopefully we will see other companies with names like Joppo, Loppo, Goppo, etc.
To be honest there is nothing unique about these smartphones. They have specifications exactly same, that we already have on our smartphone and in the same price.
