ZUK is a company backed by Lenovo, as most of you know by now. This company has introduced two smartphones thus far, the ZUK Z1, which arrived last year, and the company’s all-new flagship, the ZUK Z2 Pro which was introduced earlier this year. That being said, the company has released the ZUK Z1, also known as Lenovo ZUK Z1 and Lenovo Z1, to India quite recently as well. Now, it seems like the company is planning to release yet another phone soon, read on.
When ZUK introduced the ZUK Z2 Pro, we were wondering what happened with the regular Z2, well, it seems like that phone will arrive soon. The company’s CEO shared an official teaser image for the phone, and even though it resembles the ZUK Z2 Pro, it looks a bit different than the company’s flagship. This device has a somewhat different placement of its rear-facing camera, and it will almost certainly going to be more affordable than the ‘Pro’ variant, simply based on its naming. So, what specs can we expect? Well, a couple of months ago, we’ve seen some rumors suggesting that the ZUK Z1 Mini is coming, and if this is the new name for that smartphone, then you can expect ZUK Z2 to be a very compact smartphone. Earlier rumors suggested that the ZUK Z1 Mini will sport a 4.7-inch 720p (1280 x 720) display, 2GB / 3GB of RAM and 16GB / 32GB of internal storage. The ZUK Z2 might be a new name for the ZUK Z1 Mini, but chances are it is not. It is more likely that the ZUK Z2 will be a somewhat more affordable variant of the ZUK Z2 Pro, and that it will sport inferior specs compared to the company’s flagship.
The image above reveals not only that the phone will look slightly different than the ZUK Z2 Pro, but that the physical home button will make a comeback here, and same can be said for the USB Type-C port, the bottom-facing speaker, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The phone’s chassis will be made out of metal, which won’t be the case with the back of the device, at least it seems that way. Either way, stay tuned, this device is expected to land before the end of this month, at least according to rumors.
