Lenovo had launched its first Zuk-branded smartphone in India last week, the Zuk Z1, pricing it at Rs. 13.499. The smartphone will be made available in its first flash sale on Thursday via Amazon India at 2pm.
To recall, registrations for the sale began last week. The biggest highlight of the Lenovo Zuk Z1 is that it runs Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, which means that users will get the ability to customise their phone interface.
Under the hood, the Lenovo Zuk Z1 smartphone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz alongside Adreno 330 graphics, coupled with 3GB of RAM. The Lenovo Z1 packs 64GB of inbuilt storage, but there’s no option for storage expansion. Another notable feature of the Lenovo Z1 smartphone is that it packs a large 4100mAh battery. The dual-SIM phone supports two Nano-SIM cards, both of which support 4G LTE connectivity and Indian LTE bands – FDD Band 3 (1800MHz) and TDD Band 40 (2300MHz).
The smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX214 sensor and optical image stabilisation (OIS), a feature usually found only in high-end smartphones. There is also an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The Lenovo Zuk Z1 weighs 175 grams and measures 155.7×77.3×8.9mm.
Notably, the Lenovo Zuk Z1 embeds the fingerprint scanner on home button. Much like recently launched flagship smartphones, Lenovo Zuk Z1 features a USB Type-C 3.0 port. Other connectivity options on the Lenovo Zuk Z1 include Bluetooth 4.1, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, and Glonass. It features an accelerometer, ambient light sensor, gyroscope, digital compass (magnetometer), and proximity sensor. Stay tuned for our review of the Zuk Z1.
