Lenovo appears all set to launch the next smartphone from its Zuk series in India. The Chinese company’s India handle on Monday tweeted “Wait for it….. NOT! #FastForward” along with an image of a red and black impression of a smartphone.
As we see, the image has a caption that says “Impatience is a virtue” with a superimposed ‘Z’, which suggests it could be Lenovo Zuk Z2, which was launched in May in China. There is no information on the date of its launch unfortunately. The company in an emailed statement confirmed it would be launching the Lenovo Z2 Plus in India, the successor to the Lenovo Zuk Z1.
The Lenovo Z2 Plus can be expected to be an India-branded of the Lenovo Zuk Z2, which was launched in China in May at CNY 1,799 (roughly Rs. 18,400). The Zuk Z2 has 2.5D 5-inch full-HD display with anti-oil and anti-fingerprint protection. It is powered by 64-bit Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of LPPDR4 RAM.
The camera modules in the smartphone consist of a 13-megapixel on the rear and an 8-megapixel on the front, along with slow-motion video recording at 960fps. The Zuk Z2 also bears a 3500mAh battery, which may be what the teaser is alluding to.
At the time of launch, the Zuk Z2 already supported Indian LTE bands (Band 40). It was made available in Black and White colour variants in China.
