More ZUK Z2 renders show rotating camera design


zuk z2 render

Back in October we saw the first renders of a purported ZUK Z2 phone with a new rotating camera design. More renders come to light with better clarity, giving a nice clear look of the phone.

We are 100% sure that ZUK will release a Z2 and are already working on the phone, they probably have the new device completed with all the hardware picked and are just now waiting for the perfect time to launch, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the renders shown here are the real deal.

ZUK Z2

From what we know about the ZUK Z2 nothing has been confirmed, but as ZUK are already working with Cyanogen and Qualcomm it seems highly likely the Z2 will get another Snapdragon chip. Rumours posted with these renders say that a Snapdragon 820 will be used, but as they used an 801 in their current phone, an 808 seems possibly too.

So about these renders. Well they show a phone with a rotating camera design, but not like something we have seen in a production phone. So far only the Oppo N1, N3 a few clones and the Huawei i6 come with rotating cameras, but none as delicate looking as this.

Interestingly very similar renders had shown up in the past for the original Vivo Xshot’s leaks but they obviously they turned out to be fake. Will they be genuine this time around? Chances are no they won’t. We don’t see ZUK going from their sensible design to something that could break after the odd drop, instead we expect something along similar lines to the Z1 but an all metal design and better fingerprint scanner location. What you guys think.

    Why move the whole top panel? Think Oppo’s N series more sensible

      If it’s removable then that maybe come an advantage, especially if you could get a better top section or more features.

    So how will a case fit now that the top swivelz?

    I think this is most definitely a fake. As an owner of the Z1, the strength of the Z1 is its practicality, no bullshit features. Big battery, great screen, okay camera, frequent cyanogen/ZUI updates. It would be rather stupid for them to sacrifice battery capacity, mechanical durability & integrity for just only a swivel camera. And that render doesn’t even bother make the camera look impressive, so it’s pretty much a fake in my opinion.

    If they can get a 20+MP cam in the rotator then AOK, else stumble.

    The Chinese have very strong 3D CAD modelers. Sometimes I wonder if they put most of their budget in that department with little money left for other departments, such as QA and R&D ;-).

      Or maybe it’s part of the media business ? Dunno if this render came from the company itself or from anyone making this internet money
