Lenovo’s ZUK Mobile is reportedly shutting down after two years, according to Chinese analyst Pan Jiutang, who revealed this when a weibo user @Old Cool mentioned that ZUK will not reveal Z3 smartphone as the successor to ZUK Z2. Lenovo already announced that it will move all its sub brands under the Lenovo Moto umbrella.
Lenovo-backed startup ZUK introduced its first Z1 smartphone running ZUI for China and Cyanogen OS for global markets back in August 2015, later it introduced ZUK Z2 and ZUK Z2 Pro. Back in December it introduced the ZUK Edge flagship smartphone with 5.5-inch 1080p display with 86.4% screen-to-body ratio and 1.63mm narrow frame.
Recently leaks revealed ZUK Edge II Special Edition with curved display, dual rear cameras, we might not see it after all. ZUI might not go away since Lenovo’s VP Alex Chen Yu said that it will be used for upcoming Moto phones, at least in China.
