Lenovo‘s sister company, Zuk has announced its second smartphone in the form of the Zuk Z2. After the Zuk Z1 has taken off well and now present in markets like India too, it makes sense for Zuk to push the boundaries towards newer devices. Zuk being an independent entity in China allows the makers of the smartphone to skip out any sort of Lenovo branding.
The China launch of the phone saw the specifications revealed. The device will come with a 5 inch Full HD display with a 2.5D curved display. Clocked at 2.15GHz is the Snapdragon 820 chipset (present in the likes of the LG G5, Xiaomi Mi5 etc), which is powering the phone. There is 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. There is a fingerprint scanner built into the home button of the device, which promises to unlock the phone within .1 seconds.
The rear camera on the device is 13MP while the front-facing snapper is 8MP. There is Android Marshmallow 6.0 out of the box with ZUI 2.0 on top of it. Surprisingly there is no CyanogenMod here. The battery on the device is 3500 mAh and you do get Quick Charge 3.0 functionality. The phone support 4G LTE bands and is available in black and white colors. The phone features a metallic frame and is still a fairly light unit at just 149 grams. There is a USB Type-C port present too.
In terms of pricing, the phone will be sold at 1,799 Yuan, which roughly translates to around Rs 18,500. There is no word on the availability of the phone in India yet.
