ZUK have started the week off today with the announcement of their first phone launch on August 11th.
ZUK, a Lenovo sub brand, hopes to take a piece of the crowded smartphone market away from established phone makers when they launch their debut device next month. The ZUK Z1 will be the flagship device from the fledgling brand and although primarily aimed at the Chinese market it seems that Europe and other markets might also be lucky enough to see the phone be open to but too.
ZUK are playing their cards close to their chest, but a few teasers have revealed a battery of at least 4000mAh and a new navigation system for the Android OS known as U-touch featuring gesture controls.
Our sources have also leaked partial specifications of the ZUK Z1 confirming a Snapdragon chipset, 3GB RAM, options for 16/32 or 64GB internal memory, 13 mega-pixel main camera and 5.5-inch display.
Android 5.1 will come on the phone as standard, but there are rumours that CyanogenMod have played a part in the development of the ROM. More details on 11th July during the Beijing launch.
