Zopo Enters India with Speed 7, Features 5-inch FHD Screen, 3GB of RAM and is priced at Rs 12,999

Zopo is the latest entrant to the extremely crowded Indian smartphone scene and it has officially unveiled its premium handset, the “ Zopo Speed 7” today, priced at Rs 12,999 (~$200). The Speed 7 aims at bringing together a high performing hardware along with a well appointed design within the same device. The Zopo Speed 7 will be powered by a MediaTek MT6753 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and tagged alongside 3GB of RAM.


The display of the device shapes up in the form of a 5-inch FHD frameless screen which according to the company can exhibit better display characteristics. We would like to point out that the frameless display is all about the thinned out bezels and should not be confused with the Edge to Edge display.

The Speed 7 runs on a blend of Android 5.1 along with the company’s Z-UI. On the imaging front, the device comes with a 13.2-Megapixel primary sensor in tune with a 5-Megapixel secondary sensor. The camera app boasts of features like Face Beauty which will help appease the Selfies fanbase. Memory department is managed by a 16GB internal storage along with an expandable memory card slot. The device will be backed up by a 2,500 mAh battery (which looks rather weak for an otherwise heavily specced device).

The Speed 7 heralds with the usual bunch of connectivity features including 4G LTE connectivity. However, the spec sheet shows that it supports only the FDD-LTE Band 3 which is not yet majorly supported by operators in India. Speed 7 will be available for buyers in the first week of September on Snapdeal.

Zopo is aiming to differentiate itself from other new entrants in the market by focusing more on a quality product, efficient supply chain and a better brand experience. The best part of the deal is definitely the 200 service centers across the country that will cater to the consumers maintenance needs. But it looks like the company has teamed up with third party service providers (lke HCL) for the same. Manufacturing of the phones will be commissioned to Adcom and the company envisages starting their own production facility in India once the sales volumes surge.

Mr.Kevin Xu, CEO of Zopo Mobile said, “Zopo has been building a steady and reliable reputation as one of the best Chinese phone producers in the last few years. The goal has always been clear in the path towards globalization.” He further also shed some light on how Chinese manufacturers are enjoying one of the largest YOY (Year-on-Year) growth in the Indian perspective. The fact that India’s market is largely volume driven seems to have inspired ZOPO to make a foray on the Indian shores.

That being said, Zopo needs to battle out with some of the well established players like Xiaomi and Lenovo who have been conquering the Indian smartphone market with aggressively priced smartphones. Micromax is yet another smartphone manufacturer which enjoys a strong foothold in the budget smartphones segment. Zopo still has a long way to go and establish a brand that not only sells high performing smartphones but also offers a well crafted owning experience.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
