Unknowns include the final screen size of the smartphone and whether or not the device will be named the ZUK Z2 or ZUK Z2 Pro. An official announcement is expected next week on April 21st according to the ZUK CEO Chang Cheng on Chinese social network Weibo.

The ZUK smartphone brand was founded as a spin-off from Lenovo in May of 2015. One of its goals was to improve Lenovo's chances to better compete in the Asian markets where competition from the likes of Huawei, Xiaomi, Oppo, and other Chinese manufacturers are growing tighter. The ZUK 1 with CynogenOS was announced last year and its successor was confirmed just shortly thereafter.

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.
