ZUK Z2 is another model coming soon

zuk z2

When ZUK launched the Z2 Pro we did wonder why they had jumped straight to a ‘Pro’ model, well that question has been answered with reports that a standard ZUK Z2 will also launch.

The above image is a teaser to the upcoming ZUK Z2 which will be placed and priced below the current Z2 Pro (so starting at less than 1999 Yuan). In fact the Z2 might be the new name for the ‘Z1 Mini’ we heard about a few months back.

Gizchina News of the week

If the Z2 is the new name for the Z1 Mini then the device will feature a Helio P10 chipset, 4.7-inch HD display and have options for either 2GB+16GB or 3GB+32GB. Of course this is a big maybe, and in all honesty we would prefer the Z2 to be just a slightly down specced Z2 Pro, perhaps with a Snapdragon 617, 3GB RAM and a price of around 1499 Yuan.

What we can see from the image is that the ZUK Z2 will retain USB Type C, a physical home button, and will be constructed with an alloy chassis with 2.5D glass display on the front.

What do you think of this upcoming ZUK model?

    I would prefer some kind of ZUK Z2 Plus. Similar specs to the pro version, but bigger battery and bigger screen.

        Would like that too. Someone needs to make a 5.6″ phone, best of both worlds!

          No need for such weird dimensions… 5.5 and 5.7 inch are similar enough!

      Then why dont you buy a tablet that has a sim tray to use a phone?

        I was thinking about a subtle difference like 5.5-5.7″.

    In fact, it’s time for Chinese producers to start offering good OiS cameras in their mid-rangers. Samsung (A5 2016) and HTC (830) have just done it. It used to be the other way around, Chinese guys were first to offer new functionalities, now they’re behind.
    IMHO there is enough space on the market for both – 4.7in mid-ranger and for another, less-specced version of Z2 Pro, too.

    It`s a shame it will probably be priced at around 230$ or more, lots of people are still interested in the below 5″ factor.

    I would prefer the Z2 Pro to finally launch internationally….
