History[edit]

In 2012 Zopo released the Zopo ZP200 model, which was "China's first Glasses-Free 3D dual sim smart mobile phone". It sold many units in mainland China, mostly.[2]

In late 2013, Zopo released the world's first true octa-core CPU based smartphone, with the ZP998. The ZP998 was the first smartphone sold using the new (at the time) MediaTek MT6592 SoC.[3]

Zopo was the first company to manufacture and deliver a Linux Sailfish OS smartphone to the Indian market.[4]

As of June 2015, Zopo has opened experience stores in France, Hong Kong, Italy, Jordan, Netherlands, Tunisia, Malaysia, Myanmar and Spain.

Beginning of 2015, Zopo integrated PowerXtend in the newly launched ZP999. This is a de facto standard mobile power management from LucidLogic.[5]

In April 2015, Zopo announced it would open a European Operation Center mid-2015, in the Netherlands.[6]

With its ongoing development, Zopo has reached several different markets, officially and through local distributors. Spain is one of the strongest markets for Zopo, but the company also recently launched operations in India in August 2015,[7] and in Laos in September 2015.[8]

In October 2015 Zopo released the source code of the Speed 7 to the public.[9][10]
