Is this the first teaser for the ZUK Z2, or the ZUK mini


zuk z2 teaser

ZUK are teasing a new device, but is the phone pictured the ZUK Z2 Pro or the previously rumoured ZUK Z1 Mini?

ZUK rumours kicked in to action this week with news that the Lenovo backed phone team would launch a new flagship phone with a Snapdragon 820 chipset. That news was accompanied with renders of a a phone with outlandish 360 degree rotating camera design, which (not surprisingly) don’t appear to be real.

An official teaser from ZUK today shows a sleek black phone with narrow metal frame, 2.5D curved display, and we can just make out a laser focus module on the rear below the dual led flash and single camera.

ZUK don’t tell us which model the image is for leaving us with a few thoughts. Either this is for the new ZUK Z2, the Z1 Mini, or both phones could feature a similar design.

What isn’t shown is the fingerprint scanner, meaning that the new ZUK is going to stick with a physical home button arrangement, or at least have the fingerprint scanner on the chin of the phone.

We also wait to hear if ZUK’s partnership with Cyanogen has managed to keep on track through the past year and if an international version of the phone will be released with CM out of the box.

        If you want 1080p and home button. It does seems that there will be a bunch of those with the same specs and nothing much to differentiate so hard to get excited. At least it might be better than the MI5.

    If ZUK keeps the tradition of big battery, reasonable price & cyanogen OS then I’m in! ZUK is pretty much the only Chinese manufacturer that can claim official Cyanogen support now.
