Lenovo is set to announce its new Zuk subsidiary on August 8 with the launch of the Zuk Z1. The Z1 is expected to be available sometime before the end of 2015 and will reportedly carry a built-in Home key that doubles as a fingerprint sensor called the U-Touch.

Additionally, the Zuk smartphone will have the new USB 3.1 Type-C port for theoretical transfer rates of up to 10 Gb/s and a power delivery of up to 100 Watts. Such features are probably overkill for a smartphone, but the more lucrative feature is probably the reversible ends unlike those on the current Micro-USB 2.0 cables.

Additional features of the Z1 include a 13 MP rear camera, 4G LTE, dual SIM, MicroSD support, and a high-capacity 4000 mAh battery. Core specifications like processor and memory have not been confirmed, but the smartphone is currently rumored to ship with a Snapdragon 810 SoC and 3 GB of RAM.

The Zuk brand was created to better compete against fast-growing competitors in China like Xiaomi. Shenqi CEO and SVP Chen Xudong will spearhead the new Zuk label under the umbrella of Shenqi And Lenovo.

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.
