ZUK has announced a new Android smartphone with specs that match, or even better, the offerings of rival devices. The ZUK Z2 Pro is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset and will come with up to 6 GB RAM.
The amount of memory offered by the ZUK Z2 Pro is certainly noteworthy, given the specs of flagship smartphones that have been released so far in 2016. When it comes to the HTC 10, Samsung Galaxy S7, Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and LG G5, 4 GB RAM is the standard.
Given ZUK’s history with the ZUK Z1, it is of little surprise that the Lenovo-backed company’s new smartphone is priced extremely keenly. The ZUK Z2 Pro with 6 GB RAM will cost ¥2699 (€370/£290).
There is also an edition of the ZUK Z2 Pro with 4 GB RAM, which will be even cheaper, although its exact price is still to be confirmed.
The ZUK Z2 Pro will initially go on sale in the company’s home market of China, with pre-ordering beginning tomorrow. Engadget is reporting that ZUK intends to remain active in Europe and the Middle East, although as of yet it has not announced an international release date for the ZUK Z2 Pro.
