Lenovo sub brand ZUK may not have taken the smartphone market by storm by launching their first handset dubbed the ZUK Z1, however they have succeeded to generate quite an amount of fanfare. Now the sub brand is making a move to foreign shores as they start officially selling the ZUK Z1 in France and Spain from today onwards.
The device is exclusively available via Ebay in both the countries at a price of 279 Euro (Rs 20,500 approx.) Though priced slightly higher than its Chinese edition which comes with the company's own OS instead of the CyanogenMod, the ZUK Z1 will give stiff competitions to offering from BQ in both the countries.
The ZUK Z1 comes with a Qualcomm Snaodragon 801 SoC with four cores clocked at 2.5GHz and a 3GB of RAM. The 5.5 inch Full HD device also sports a USB Type C port, 4100mAh battery and a dual SIM port. At the fag end of 2015, Snapdragon 801 might not be quite awe inspiring hence the presence of CM12.1 is the main selling point of the ZUK device.
Despite starting its operations in France and Spain ZUK has opened an office or service centers to address warranty issues in both the countries. It's believed that ZUK will operating its services from the Lenovo offices in the countries. Hopefully ZUK will be clarifying the issues officially in a few days. The recent move by ZUK however symbolized the fact that the company has bumped up its inventories to cater to foreign markets. The company is also reported to enter India this month.
