Lenovo-backed smartphone brand ZUK has entered the Indian market with its first smartphone, the ZUK Z1. The ZUK Z1 was introduced last year in China, and though the specs seem outdated, it is not any unique case as not long ago, we’ve seen OnePlus launching the OnePlus X being powered by the same chipset. Recently, it was also known that YU Televentures had their contract ended with Cyanogen, and thus, ZUK takes the upper hand by running the Cyanogen OS in its Z1 smartphone.
The phone comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 64GB internal storage, and the camera combination of 13-megapixel rear and 8-megapixel front-facing camera.
The front home button also has a fingerprint sensor for the additional security and design wise, the phone looks quite sturdy. To add to the impressive list of specs based on that price, the ZUK Z1 also has a 4100 mAh battery, similar to the capacity that the battery of Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 has.
Similar to the LeEco Le 1s, there is support for USB Type-C connectivity and the phone has USB 3.1 support. To compare with similar specs except for the chipset and front-facing camera, one can take a look at the LeEco Le 1s Eco, and the Xiaomi Redmi Note 3.
The ZUK Z1 is going to be available exclusively on Amazon.in from May 19th. It is priced at Rs. 13499, which is still an impressive price for what is being provided here.
