Lenovo ZUK Z1 in Hong Kong– Smooth looks

The Lenovo ZUK Z1 looks like simple at one glance, but it also gives a futuristic feel bringing the minimalistic nature. The device itself does not have much to flash, but what lies underneath is definitely tantalising. All physical buttons – volume rockers and power button are hidden neatly into the case making it look sleek and futuristic.

High Performance

Running on Android OS v5.1.1 (Lollipop), the ZUK Z1 is capable of running processes smooth and problem free. The Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 chipset on the Quad-core 2.5 GHz Krait 400 CPU works well with the overall configuration.


Unbelievably, the ZUK Z1 comes with a 13MP f/2.2 autofocus OIS camera with dual-LED flash system. The front camera is an 8 MP shooter with features such as geo-tagging, face detection and panorama shot. This combination makes it perfect for everyday shots.
