Yesterday ZUI’s team announced that ZUK’s three major smartphones – ZUK Z2, ZUK Z2 Pro and ZUK edge’s operating system will stop updating. According to the official, the ZUI of the ZUK model has received five major Android update and more than 300 minor versions of the system have been upgraded. Although the ZUK mobile phone brand has ceased operation, Lenovo still provides system upgrades for these three smartphones.

On July 25, 2017, ZUK official website was officially closed and has been replaced by Moto’s official website. Before that, ZUK has officially closed its forum website and jumped directly to the Lenovo community.
