Lenovo along with ZUK last week launched its device Z1 in China which got over 2 million pre-orders within a week.
“Cyanogen is excited to be the OS for ZUK’s Z1 international version!” posted the firm on its Google+ post on Friday.
Now the company is planning for an international version too which will be running on cyanogen OS. The ZUK Z1 specs are pretty decent. The device flaunts a 5.5-inch full-HD, 1080×1920 pixels of LCD screen. It is powered by Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.5GHZ coupled with 3GB of RAM and Adreno 330 GPU.
One thing it does have that most expensive phones don’t is a USB 3.0 Type-C port on the bottom. It features a physical home button on the bottom of the front panel, that home button on the ZUK Z1 smartphone also embeds the fingerprint scanner. The smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony sensor (IMX214) and optical image stabilization (OIS), which is found in high end smartphones only.
Also the Smartphone has an 8-megapixel of front-facing camera. The model launched in China supports both 4G LTE bands in India (FDD-LTE Band 3 1800MHz and TDD-LTE Band 40 2300MHz). It has a 4100 mAh of humongous battrey and is going to be available in White and Greyvariants.
The device will have Cyanogen OS 12.1 when it ships in October. The Chinese version of the phone sells for 1,799 yuan (about $280), but the international version will probably be a little pricier. It’s also not clear what “international” constitutes means which part of the world. The firm showcased a prototype device, the prototype smartphone is seen featuring a near bezel-less frame on the transparent glass-like display.
It is strongly believed that the device will be available for international buyers from October.
