Despite rumours of a Samsung chipset, the latest teaser for the upcoming ZUK Z2 is contains Qualcomm Snapdragon branding.

In an interesting twist the ZUK Z2 smartphone rumoured to come with a Samsung Exynos 8890 chipset has been confirmed for launch on the 31st with a Snapdragon chipset instead.

The original rumour came last week when a ZUK boss hinted that their new mid range phone will come with the Exynos chipset, but it seems that this was a bit of misdirection.

Although we don’t know which Snapdragon processor the Z2 will get yet, we can guess that it will likely be a Snapdragon 652 as the Z2 Pro already has the 820.

As for the rest of the hardware well the only details we have were for a Z1 mini phone that might have been renamed to become the Z2 which will see the new phone launch with a 4.7-inch FHD display, 3GB RAM and 13 mega-pixel main camera.

We’ll know for sure as soon as the Z2 launches at the end of the month so stay tuned.

    Was anyone really falling for those exynos or helio p10 rumors? Zuk has an international cyano os, and cyano only works with qualcomm chips as far as I know.
