ZUK is a China-based company which is owned by Lenovo. This company had introduced two smartphones under the ‘ZUK’ brand in China this year, the ZUK Z2 and ZUK Z2 Pro. Both of these smartphones are quite compelling as far as specs go, though the ZUK Z2 Pro is the more powerful one. That being said, it was just a matter of time before one of these two smartphones lands in India, and that has just happened, read on.
Lenovo has unveiled the ZUK Z2 in India, but it comes sporting a different name to the country, it’s called the Lenovo Z2 Plus. As you can see, Lenovo actually used the name of the company in India, and even added the ‘Plus’ to the name for some reason. Aside from the name change and an additional RAM variant, this is the same device the company had introduced in China back in May. The Lenovo Z2 Plus features a 5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) 2.5D curved glass display, 3GB / 4GB RAM DDR4 RAM and 32GB / 64GB of internal storage. The 13-megapixel snapper (f/2.2 aperture, 5P lens, ISOCELL sensor, PDAF) can be found on the back of this smartphone, while an 8-megapixel camera (1.4um pixel size, f/2.0 aperture) is placed on front side of this device. The 3,500mAh battery is also a part of this package, and it comes with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology. The Type-C USB port is placed on the bottom of this device, though we’re looking at USB 2.0 here, not USB 3.0. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 64-bit quad-core processor fuels this smartphone, along with the Adreno 530 GPU, while there are two SIM card slots available in this handset. The fingerprint scanner is placed below the display, while Android 6.0 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on the device. The ZUK Z2 Plus measures 141.65 x 68.88 x 8.45mm, while it weighs 149 grams.
The ZUK Z2 Plus will be available in Black and White color variants, while its 4GB and 6GB RAM models will cost Rs. 17,999 ($267) and Rs. 19,999 ($299) in India, respectively. The device will be available exclusively from Amazon India, and you’ll be able to purchase it from September 26th in the country. Do keep in mind that the company will also offer two cases, the Chrono Case and Stealth Case which will cost Rs. 1,299 ($19) and Rs. 699 ($10), respectively, just in case you’re interested.
