Zopo C2 Offers Quad-Core Processor and Aliyun OS For Only $230

Zopo C2Zopo is one of those rarely heard names in the smartphone industry. That is because its handsets are primarily delivered for Asian consumers. Also, with phones that suspiciously resembled HTC, LG and Samsung handsets, many have thought that Zopo is just another producer of clones.

Finally, the company has delivered something unique that we won’t find anywhere else in the industry. Its latest phone, the Zopo C2 uses the Aliyun OS, instead of the much more popular Android OS. Also based on Linux, the Aliyun OS is clearly inspired by Google’s Android. Unfortunately, the developer took a bit too much inspiration from Android that Google blocked the software platform last year. It was believed that Aliyun incorporates key Android OS components, which are used without permission. It’s not clear whether Aliyun’s development team and Google have settled their disputes.

The Zopo C2 sports 5” full HD display, 1.2GHz MediaTek MT6589 quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 5Mp front-facing camera, 13Mp rear-facing camera, 4GB of internal storage, Yamaha audio chip and removable 2,000mAh battery. This whole package costs only $230.
