ZUK Z1 was supposedly ‘unveiled' in a review by a Chinese website. While most of the previous leaks regarding the device came out to be true, there are a few details that may surprise you.
If you are totally unaware of the brand dubbed ZUK, then it's time you knew that ZUK is a sub brand of the already popular Lenovo. Facing stiff competition from counterparts like Xiaomi, OnePlus and Honor, the Chinese OEM Lenovo decided to unveil a totally new brands dubbed ZUK.
Nevertheless the ZUK Z1 comes with a SD801 which is the same SoC as seen on the Xiaomi Mi4. A new generation 64 bit SoC from Qualcomm would have fared well especially considering the fact that ZUK Z1 is a flagship device from the company, but considering the price tag of 1799 Yuan (approx. Rs 18,000) we can let that passe.
The device comes in a metal frame with a 5.5 inch Full HD (1920x1080) display upfront and a glossy plastic back. The glossy back will make the device slippery on hand - a matte finish would have done better.
There is a 3GB of RAM to handle all multitasking needs along with 64GB of internal storage, but sadly the storage isn't expandable via MicroSD card slots. ZUK has bundled in a beefy 4100 mAh in the device. Additionally there is a 2.5A fast charger in the box.
The optics are handled by a 13MP IMX214 sensor (same as the one found in the popular last gen flagships Mi4, OnePlus One, Find 7 etc.) along with a OIS (Optical Image stabilization). The front has a capable 8MP shooter.
The USP of the device though lies in the U Touch fingerprint sensor found below the display and the USB Type C port. The ZUK Z1 runs on Android Lollipop 5.1.1 running on the company's own ZUI - this is unlike the previous leaks which speculated a Cyanogenmod OS. For connectivity the device features Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi a/b/g/n/ac.
No info about the official launch date of the device is known as of yet though.
