Lenovo owned ZUK releases the Z1 with a 4,100 mAh battery, USB Type-C and fingerprint scanner


ZUK is a company that is officially backed by Lenovo and promised to bring high end devices to the customers on the cheap. The company’s first smartphone, the ZUK Z1 has just been announced sporting what seems to be a high end hardware. Although the Snapdragon 801 SoC is being used here, the rest of the hardware specs are top shelf.

The ZUK Z1 is packing a 5.5 inch 1080p display, a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front camera, 3GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, Android 5.1 Lollipop and a mammoth 4,100 mAh battery.

The device also has a fingerprint scanner embedded within the central home button, known as ‘U-Touch’. This button is quite versatile and can function as a multitasking button, back button as well as the standard button thanks to a variety of gestures.

ZUK has used an aircraft grade aluminum frame with the smartphone, which should offer pretty decent durability. The handset has been priced at 1799 CNY or $284, which is remarkable considering the hardware on offer. There’s no word on a global release yet and we suggest you don’t hold your breath.
