A few days ago Lenovo took it to its official Twitter page to tease about the launch of its upcoming phone, the Lenovo Z2 Plus in the country.
Basically, Lenovo Z2 Plus will be the Indian variant of Zuk Z2 Plus which got launched in China in the first half of this year. Here are some striking features in the handset which could interest you. Take a look at it below.
Lenovo has worked hard on the design of Z2 Plus
As opposed to the all-metal body on the company's earlier model, the Lenovo Z2 Plus will now feature a fibre glass body which will be 45% lighter and 25% stronger. This composition of fibre and glass will allow for efficient thermal management and better signal reception.
Yes, it has been redesigned for India
Keeping Indian consumers in mind, the company has made few changes to the smartphone in comparison to the Chinese variant. The Z2 Plus will now come with Google Now as the default launcher and will have on screen keys for navigation. It will support VoLTE out of the box. Long screenshot, Carrier Aggregation, and 3G Fallback are few changes among other.
Here comes a Smart fingerprint sensor
The fingerprint sensor in the Z2 Plus will implement a self-learning algorithm which enables it to keep learning constantly thereby allowing it to maintain high accuracy (99.7%). It learns and adjusts to even the slightest of change in the fingerprint (which may cause due to skin peel, wound, or skin growth).
New U-Touch 2.0
Apart from unlocking your phone, the fingerprint sensor on the Z2 Plus can perform various other functions. For instance, a single touch will function as back, long touch to quickly open notification centre, double press to open app switcher, swipe left or right to open recent apps, single press to go back to home screen, and long press to open Google Now.
Quick toggle notification panel
The redesigned UI on the Z2 Plus will now allow you to open quick toggles from the bottom as shown in the above picture.
