Lenovo Zuk Z1 Highlights

Lenovo is all set to introduce its new online-only sub-brand Zuk in India. The Chinese company will launch the Zuk Z1 smartphone in the second week of May. The new sub-brand was developed by Lenovo to counter the rise of Xiaomi in China, and will allow the company to exploit the low-cost online-only sales model. This will be along the same lines as what we’ve seen from Huawei’s sub-brand Honorand Micromax’s Yu, which have both been online exclusives so far.

Lenovo’s Zuk was expected to start operations in China in April last year, but its first product was launched there only in August. Ahead of the India launch, Gadgets 360 got a chance to play with the new “Lenovo Z1 powered by Zuk” as it was called by Anuj Sharma, Head of Product Marketing, Lenovo.

To start off, the new Lenovo Zuk Z1 smartphone doesn’t look at all like Lenovo’s current devices, and sports a new design altogether. The front of the smartphone is dominated by a 5.5-inch display. The glass on the front extends to the device’s frame. The rear panel of the Zuk Z1 is slightly curved, offering a decent grip.
