Smartphone will launch outside of China with identical hardware, but with a change in software.

Lenovo just recently announced the 4G-enabled Z1 smartphone under its new Zuk brand for the Asian market. Now, it has been confirmed that the device will see an overseas launch as well. The manufacturer will speak more about the international model this coming Friday on August 21.

While the Z1 hardware remains unchanged on the international version, this version will carry Cyanogen 12.1 software instead. The specifications have been untouched:

  • Display: 5.5-inch 1080p
  • CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 801
  • RAM: 3 GB RAM
  • Storage: 64 GB
  • Connectivity: USB Type-C port
  • Cameras: 13 MP rear, 8 MP front
  • Battery: 4100 mAh

Unfortunately, Lenovo is tight-lipped about when the rest of the world can expect the Zuk Z1. Currently, it appears likely that the smartphone will launch for about 250 Euros.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
