Here are the first images of the ZUK Z2 Pro


zuk z2 pro

During the launch we didn’t get a good look at the ZUK Z2 Pro, but here are some really nice images of the new 6GB RAM flagship phone.

The ZUK Z2 Pro was announced today in China at a price of 2699 Yuan which is around $417. For that price the phone offers a Snapdragon 820 chipset, 6GB RAM, 128GB memory, 13 mega-pixel F1.8 rear camera with OIS and PDAF, fingerprint scanner, 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display, 3100mAh battery and a new body with 3D glass rear panel.

ZUK will offer the Z2 Pro in white with a gold frame, or black with black CNC metal frame. The Black version of the phone certainly get’s my vote and looks stunning with it’s dual glass panels and metal frame design.

What do you think of the new ZUK Z2 Pro?

    White version looks so much better than the Mi5, the black borders on Mi5 ruins its looks.

    Looks great, specs awesome but the size…

    now while the price is obv. a bit higher

    atleast with the zuk z1 the price i was paying in europe was mostly exactly the same as the announced price if i wanted to get one..and thats a good thing..

    so there MAYBE wont be huge reseller margins on top of the announced price.

    Spec wise this is a madness, they just shut down xiaomi and meizu hard. I really hope this doesnt ship with cyaongen though. After using it for a very long time on my one plus one, depsite its features I have come to the conclusion it is a very bland OS, also buggyer than you would think and the camera software is weak.

    • Simon
      April 21, 2016

      Whatever software it ships with, will it get updates for the next 2 to 3 years ? I know the Mi5 and Mi5 Pro will get MIUI updates for 2 to 3 years. Balco will testify to that.

      • Sere83
        April 21, 2016

        lol, yeah you will get some pointless weekly updates that usually ad more bugs and achieve very little. Then if you are very lucky you will get one actual android version update if any at all. Then more pointless weekly updates.

        • Simon
          April 21, 2016

          So if the software is pointless, then there is no point buying this Z2 Pro ?

            April 21, 2016

            When did i mention the Z2? I was talking about MIUI’s weekly updates which are a joke. Xiaomi are also particularly bad at doing proper android version updates, as I say you will not get more than one in a devices life time if you get one at all. They frequently introduce new bugs with weekly updates it is well known to anyone who used MIUI for any length of time knows, for some reason @balcobomber25:disqus is just completely in denial about these facts. Spend some time on the MIUI forums and you will see.

      It’s a Samsung ISOCELL with OIS.

    • balcobomber25
      April 21, 2016

      A lot of companies are going to 5.2 this year. I think it’s because it’s the perfect blend between those who want 5 and 5.5. Not too big and not too small.

      • tauerman
        April 21, 2016

        I only owned 5.5 and 5,95 (Nexus 6) inch phones.
        But I tried a 5,0 phone from a relative. I like the bigger phones.
        Though the Galaxy S7 non-edge which I tried in a retail store (Mediamarkt) with its 5,1 inch screen wasn’t too bad.
        The feel in hand of a 5,5 inch phone also varies with its screen/body ratio. The Zuk Z1 was a bad example, the LG G3 a better one.

      • Yep
        April 21, 2016

        Well I think that is the case for Samsung and LG yes, but for Zuk they’re probably just following the market. Samsung at least offer bigger sizes. LG need to.

        • balcobomber25
          April 21, 2016

          Samsung has done that size for awhile. The Galaxy S4 was 5, and then the S5 was 5.1.

          • Yep
            April 22, 2016

            True dat. I’m glad HTC have increased in size too. I would love a refreshed HTC One Max with 820 4GB/64GB.

      Much better than the Mi5 design and no hideous black borders around the display.

      • Muzamil Sarfraz
        April 22, 2016

        well it looked a lot like the mi4 here but it looks a lot better in real life , the mi5 also looks pretty good in black though Letv is the true let down

    • VMortens

      It actually looks pretty decent. Humble and elegant, although I’m not a fan of the shiny, glassy backs.
