Lenovo Z1 is the first device by ZUK, a new business vertical created from within the company to focus on more innovative devices that push the boundaries for hardware and software. It is also their first device to run Cyanogen OS. The Zuk brand will co-exist with the Vibe and Moto ranges from the company.
Lenovo ZUK Z1 runs Cyanogen OS 12.1 offering customisations, as well as the ability to root and flash the phone. It has a 5.5-inch Full HD display will come with a lot of customisations, thanks to the Cyanogen OS.
Z1 sports an older Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB RAM, and has 64GB storage space. However the dual-SIM smartphone does not have a micro-SD slot.
Zuk Z1 also comes with USB Type-C slot for charging and data transfer, along with a big 4100 mAh battery. Lenovo claims the battery will last long as it cuts down on unnecessary charge cycles by switching to DC power when the battery touches 100 per cent.
The rear camera is 13MP, while the front camera is 5MP. The fingerprint scanner on the Z1 supports 360 degree recognition. Zuk Z1 does not have micro-SD slot for expansion.
