The Cyanogen OS running ZUK Z1 from Lenovo’s latest venture will be officially avaialble to buy through from mid September!

Where as other online stores will be buying up Chinese stock of the ZUK Z1 which runs ZUI and lacks native Google support, have teamed up with ZUK international to sell the internatoinal version of the phone with Cyanogen OS.

The ZUK Z1 is the first phone from Lenovo backed start-up ZUK and features a 5.5-inch 1080 display, 3GB RAM and Snapdragon 801 processor, upon which runs Cyanogen OS. Cyanogen and ZUK are official partners for the ZUK Z1 meaning that updates and additional features will all be handled by Cyanogen OS. CM on the ZUK Z1 will still remain open source, but having Cyanogen be an official partner should mean fast OTA and even a quick update to Android M once available.

CM is only part of the feature highlight of the ZUK Z1 though. The phone is also one of the first devices to ship with USB Type C 3.0 for fast data transfer, quick charging and even audio. The Z1 also boasts a huge 4100mAh battery, fingerprint scanner, dual SIM LTE and outstanding audio quality.

Pre-orders of the ZUK Z1 will begin on 10th September from our EU warehouse only, with orders being handled around the 25th September.
