Another Chinese handset maker named Zuk Mobile is planning to enter the smartphone market. The company is all set to launch a high-end smartphone with Cyanogen OS in the second half of this year.
With the launch of this phone, the company will take on Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus, and Micromax's Yu, both of which already offer Cyanogen powered smartphones in India.
This company is backed with Lenovo and the Chinese software company 360. The software company has invested $409 million in the Zuk and the first smartphone is codenamed as the Zuk Z1.
As of now, there is no official information available about the Zuk Z1 smartphone. All we know as of now is that, the Z1 will be shipped with CyanogenOS, finger-print sensor and a large battery.
On the other hand, the Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus has started selling its killer flagship mobile on the e-retailer Flipkart.
"Starting June 22, the OnePlus One 64 GB (Sandstone Black) will be available on Flipkart at Rs 21,999," Vikas Agarwal, General Manager - India, OnePlus told PTI. The 16 GB Silk White variant is expected to be made available at Rs 18,999 in a few weeks, Agarwal added.
OnePlus started selling its phones exclusively on Amazon in December last year in India. "At OnePlus, it has been our constant endeavour to evaluate and evolve our go-to market strategy and this collaboration is another step in that direction.
"We are happy to have Flipkart as our new channel partner, in a bid to expand our reach and make OnePlus One more accessible to people across the country," he said.
