After launching Zopo Color M5 last month in India, the company has now unveiled its Zopo Speed X smartphone in the country. The standout feature of the new smartphone is that the company has now tied up with Ratan Tata-funded AI-based chatbot – Niki – that allows users to perform various tasks with Zopo Speed X. The handset will be made available in Royale Gold, Charcoal Black, Orchid Gold, and Space Grey colours but the release date as well as the pricing has not been announced just as yet.

With Niki chatbot app, Zopo Speed X users will get easy purchase options for more than 20 e-commerce services ranging from travel and entertainment to daily utilities. “They will simply have to chat with Niki to pay bills, book cabs, buses, hotels, movie tickets and a lot more, just within seconds,” the company said in its release.

Keeping the chatbot aside, the new Zopo Speed X also sports dual cameras at the rear end. The dual camera setup features a primary 13-megapixel sensor and a secondary 2-megapixel sensor that allows it to capture depth-of-field. At front, the new Zopo smartphone comes with a 13-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture and soft light LED flash support.
