ZUK is a new company that has received backing from Lenovo and the Z1 is their first smartphone. We’ve prepared a photo gallery of the device for your viewing pleasure. In case you haven’t seen our review of the smartphone yet, then do check it out here.
The ZUK Z1 is powered by a Snapdragon 801 processor and has 3GB of RAM. There is a large 5.5″ 1080p display up front. Above the display, you have the earpiece, front facing 8 Megapixel camera as well as the ambient light and proximity sensors. Below the display, you have a home button with a fingerprint sensor as well as two capacitive buttons on either side.

At the right side, there is the volume rocker button as well as the power/lock button. Both the set of keys are easy to press and give good feedback when pressed.
The left side houses the dual SIM card slot which is a dual Nano SIM tray.
At the bottom, you have the USB Type-C port, primary microphone, speaker grill and the cutouts for the antenna.
There are cutouts for the antenna at the top as well along with the 3.5mm audio jack.
The phone runs of Android 5.1.1 Lollipop with CyanogenMod 12S out of the box. The smartphone isn’t available in India yet but retails at a price of US$ 284 outside. We hope that Lenovo do plan to introduce it soon in India.
