Lenovo Plans To “ZUK” The Competition With Z2

By -

The company that owns the Moto phone line-up, has announced the second iteration of its ZUK smartphone. Called Z2, the handset packs-in some serious power. For starters, you get the top-of-the-line, Snapdragon 820 chipset found in expensive phones such as the HTC 10 and Sony Xperia X.

The ZUK 2 has 5-inch Full HD IPS screen. It is protected by a scratch-resistance glass. The phone features a 13 megapixel camera. For narcissists there’s an 8 megapixel front-facing snapper. Fingerprint scanner, Type-C USB, 3500 mAH battery with the latest quick charge 3.0.

The phone runs Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) with ZUI 2.0 on top of it. From the press material, the UI seems improved. It no longer looks like the clutter of gaudy icons.

The dual-SIM phone supports 4G LTE. The ZUK Z2 is only 8.4 mm thick and has a sleek metal frame. It comes in white and black and will be up for grabs in China on 7th of June via flash sale. The price is said to be 1799 yuan which translates to around Rs 18,500. At least on paper, this sounds like a sweet deal.
