A new mobile phone company is testing its luck here in the Philippines, the Lenovo backed Z.U.K. with its ZUK Z1 smartphone.
This one boasts ‘flagship features’ at a relatively affordable price. For ₱15,299, it offers a 5.5-inch full HD display, 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, Cyanogen OS and a massive 4,100mAh battery!
As previously mentioned, the ZUK Z1 runs on Cyanogen OS which provides stock Android Lollipop user interface but with additional, useful features. A Marshmallow update is also in the works.
Photography is handled by a 13 Megapixel main camera with Optical Image Stabilization at the back and an 8MP selfie snapper at the front.
|There are two color options – white and gray.|
The ZUK Z1 has two nano SIM slots and can connect to 4G LTE networks. Dual band Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.1 are also present.
It comes with plenty of storage space at 64GB although there’s no microSD card slot. USB OTG is supported through a USB Type-C adaptor.
|What’s in the ZUK Z1 box?|
Its home button doubles as a finger print sensor while the 4,100mAh battery can last up to two days on a single charge and supports fast charging.
This is now available in some physical stores in major cities throughout the country.
