A couple of weeks ago we saw for the first time some renders with ZUK Z1, smartphone prepared by the Chinese company Lenovo and Qihoo 360. Today, August 11th, the phone is fully revealed, and that means we get to know its full specification, price, and also to see how this device looks like in terms of design compared to other phones on the market.
First, we’re taking a closer look on its design, chapter where we see a couple of similarities between this one and Apple iPhone 6, mostly when it comes to the front-facing panel and to the overall rounded case. Also, it seems that the home button form is borrowed from its rival Meizu. Yet, we must admit that ZUK Z1 doesn’t look bad at all.
This design is accompanied by a hardware package that brings a 5.5-inch Full HD display (1920 x 1080 pixels), a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor that is clocked at 2.5 GHz, an Adreno 330 GPU, 3 GB of RAM memory and 64 GB space of internal storage. Is pretty interesting the choice of Snapdragon 801 CPU, but this one is a great processor after all.
Next on the list we have a 13-megapixel rear camera from Sony (IMX214) with a f/2.2 aperture and optical image stabilization, a 8-megapixel front-facing OmniVision sensor that promises great selfies, a 4.100 mAh battery, an USB Type-C 3.0 port and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop as default operating system. ZUK Z1 will pack a fingerprint scanner under the home button.
Lenovo ZUK Z1 offers dual-SIM support, WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, a 3.5 mm audio jack and a metallic frame. From what it seems, this phone will be sold on the Chinese market for a $285 price tag, phone available in two color variants: white and grey.
