At the MWC 2016, the company launched high-end ZOPO Speed 8 smartphone with the MediaTek Helio X20 processor. Now, the company launched a new entry-level smartphone called ZOPO Color C5. Earlier to this, the company launched the Color C2 smartphone which also sports basic specifications. The Color C5 comes with a textured body that gives a premium brushed metal look. It runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow, and the UI looks close to the stock Android UI.
The device sports a 5-inch HD (1280 x 720 pixels) IPS display offering a pixel density of 294 ppi and a 2.5D glass laid on top. Since it is an entry-level device, we can see the thick bezels on all the four edges. It is powered by the MediaTek MT6737 quad-core processor coupled with Mali T720 MP1 GPU.The Color C5 also includes 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. There is also MicroSD card slot for further expansion of storage upto 64GB. The chrome finished volume rocker and power button are placed on the right edge of the device.
In the camera department, there is a 5MP rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 2MP selfie camera with f/2.8 aperture. Both the front and rear cameras come with LED flash. After removing the back panel, we find the 2,100mAh removable battery. Even the dual SIM card slots and a MicroSD card slot are placed under the back panel. With the pre-installed Parallel Space app, the user can duplicate any app on the device to use with another account. For example, the user can have two Whatsapp or Snapchat accounts on the same device. It also comes with Picture-in-Picture (PIP) mode for viewing videos on top of other apps.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, 3.5mm Audio port, and a MicroUSB 2.0 port. It measures 144 x 72.2 x 8.8 mm and weighs 155 grams. The Color C5 comes in Matte Black, Champagne, Rose Gold, and White. Talking about the earlier Color C2, it lacks the 4G LTE connectivity and has just 8GB of internal storage. Apart from those two, most of the other specifications are same on the both the Color C2 and Color C5 smartphones. The pricing nor the availability of the device are yet to be announced.
