We all have been waiting patiently to see the upcoming ZUK Z1 flagship. This will be the first smartphone from the Lenovo subsidiary, which will reportedly focus a lot on the software and UI. However, that doesn’t mean the phone is going to be just average, as recent teasers have confirmed high-end specs for the Z1.
Earlier today, the company officially confirmed via Weibo that they will be keeping a press conference on August 8. The conference will be held to unveil the new ZUK Z1 flagship. From what we have heard, the phone has pretty good specs.
We already know for sure that it will be the first smartphone to feature USB Type-C 3.0 port. This not only increases transfer speeds to a whole new level, but also makes fast charge possible at 3A. So, even though its not the first to boast of the reversible USB Type-C port, its going to be the first one to use the advanced USB 3.0 specification.
Other specs are also high-end. The phone will come with a special fingerprint sensor called as the U-Touch integrated directly into the home button. So, users can unlock the phone, just by pressing the button up front.
ZUK Z1 is expected to come with a 4000mAh+ battery, which will make it one of the few big battery flagship phones from an established manufacturer. Further, under the hood, we expect at least 3GB of RAM and Snapdragon 810 octa-core chipset.
The company has already established a strategic partnership with JD.com, one of the biggest e-commerce sites in China. So, the phone will be sold via JD.com in the coming weeks. Unfortunately, we still have no clue about its pricing. However, since Lenovo is known to price its products aggressively, we hope the upcoming ZUK Z1 turns out to be affordable.
Stay tuned for more details.
