Partial specs Of Cyanogen-Powered and Lenovo funded ZUK Z1 smartphone Revealed
China is today one of the largest and most competitive smartphone market in the world. While many of the local companies are trying to defeat each other in terms of sales and profit, you also have the foreign heavyweight companies in the race that are included in the competition too.
Now, there’s a new local player in town, a company called ZUK. Headed by Chang Cheng, former VP of Lenovo, ZUK is a very interesting company that is actually supported by both Qihoo 360 and Lenovo with the former company investing $409 million in it. It will be very exciting to see what are they able to do in such a highly-competitive environment, as they definitely mean business.
The company’s forthcoming Cyanogen-powered ZUK Z1 smartphone is according to what some say would be a high-end offering by the company. No official details regarding the specs have been disclosed by the company yet; however, according to a listing that has appeared online disclose the partial specs of this device.
The listing states that the ZUK Z1 will feature a 5.5-inch FHD screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels display resolution. It will also have 3GB of RAM along with 16 or 32GB of in-built storage capacity. The device will reportedly feature a 13-megapixel camera on the back, and a 5-megapixel camera on the front side of the handset. The source also claims that the ZUK Z1 will offer support for global 4G LTE-FDD network.
According to earlier information, it said that the device would be a dual-SIM handset and would have rather than a large battery unit. The fingerprint scanner has also been mentioned, but no details have been provided as to where it would be located. Further, no information regarding its availability or its appearance have been provided.
However, one thing that is definite is it will come with Cyanogen OS pre-installed on top of Android (much like YU’s and Smartfren’s devices which launched recently), and it will most likely be very reasonably priced. It is interesting to know that Qihoo 360 has recently collaborated with Coolpad to start a QiKU company, which will also produce smartphones.
