In an interesting turn of events, Elephone has announced that they have become the official partner of ZUK (a Lenovo sub brand) and will be dealing with international promotion for the start up phone brand.
I type this up as I wait in the airport to fly and meet the ZUK team and see the ZUK Z1 in the flesh in Shenzhen. Usually I’m stuck as to what to ask a phone maker when first meeting them (other than the usual questions) but for ZUK I know exactly what to ask; “Why have you chosen Elephone to work with?”.
We saw on Facebook yesterday that Elephone had confirmed a cooperation with the Lenovo backed ZUK phone company, but we didn’t really know what the cooperation included. Today a short email reveals the Elephone will work on the international side of the brand.
The ZUK Z1 has already been released in China where it is on sale for 1799 Yuan and features 64GB internal memory, 3GB RAM 5.5-inch FHD display, Snapdragon 801 chipset and 4100mAh battery plus fingerprint scanner.
Hopefully we will have more details and information about the ZUK Z1 in a few days. Keep watching GizChina for more news.
