Some mobile users may not be familiar with ZUK. It is actually a Chinese mobile brand that has since been absorbed as a subsidiary of Lenovo, who also has the brands Moto and Vibe under its wing. Well, ZUK has just officially unveiled its latest smartphone offering, the Z2 Pro, which looks to be worth checking out, based on design and specifications.
ZUK’s Z2 Pro comes with a 5.2 inch display screen Super AMOLED display screen, with 1,080 pixel resolution, shielded with 2.5D Gorilla Glass 3. This is flanked by a Samsung 13 megapixel 1.34um camera (with f/1.8 aperture) on the rear side, and an 8 megapixel 1.4um camera (with f/2.0 aperture) on the front side.
Inside its sleek frame, the Z2 Pro smartphone from ZUK boasts Qualcomm’s 2.15 GigaHertz four core Snapdragon 820 chip set, supported with up to 6 gigabytes of LPDDR4 random access memory (RAM), as well as up to 128 gigabytes of onboard memory. It comes with a gargantuan 3,100 mAh battery, and is powered by ZUK’s ZUI 2.0 based on Google’s Android mobile operating system.
As far as features are concerned, the ZUK Z2 Pro smartphone features a fingerprint scanner, which apparently is able to function properly even with wet fingers. The device’s software allows users to personalize various finger gestures, including single tap, double tap, horizontal scrolling, and long press.
The Z2 Pro may have been designed by ZUK with endurance in mind. The handset comes with a roll cage design that may be reminiscent of the ThinkPad’s. It also includes a shock absorbing layer that lies between the curved glass rear side and the 4.6 millimeter thick metal midframe. It provides no guarantee of shatter proof capabilities, but the device does get extra protection.
Fitness enthusiasts may be delighted to know that the Z2 Pro smartphone is also fitted with an optical heart rate monitor that can measure oxygen saturation. ZUK makes things fun by adding a feature that allows people to use the sensor to take selfies and incorporate a heart shaped label displaying their heart rate at the time.
Interestingly, ZUK has designed the Z2 Pro to sync with Apple’s iCloud, which should make it easier for a certain group of mobile users, specifically owners of iPhone devices who are thinking of switching to ZUK’s smartphone.
As for its price, the Z2 Pro elite edition (6 gigabytes of RAM, 128 gigabytes of built in storage) sells for $420. Unfortunately, no price has been revealed yet for the 4 gigabyte RAM, 64 gigabyte onboard storage edition of the Z2 Pro.
