ZUK Z2 Coming This March, Expect New Features

by Joe 4

Last year, Lenovo’s sub-brand ZUK released its first smartphone, the ZUK Z1 aimed at the affordable flagship market. The phone came with a neat design and good specs which made it quite an attractive package for its $300 price tag. Given that its been more than six months since the Z1 debuted, news about a second generation ZUK Z2 have started to come out. We already have heard rumors about the second gen device featuring a rotating camera module and Snapdragon 820, and now the CEO has confirmed that the phone will launch sometime in March.

It looks like the next few weeks are going to be pretty amazing for smartphone fans all around the world. We have already seen the innovative LG G5, Samsung Galaxy S7 and the Huawei Matebook 2-in-1 and there are a lot more announcements coming our way at MWC 2016. Further, the world’s first 6GB smartphone, Vivo XPlay 5 is all set to debut in March as well as this ZUK Z2 flagship, possibly with a rotating camera.


Unfortunately, we haven’t received much news about the ZUK Z2 yet, but we can expect pretty powerful specs on the device. ZUK revealed via its official weibo page that the phone will come with innovative technology. It could be hinting at the rumored rotating camera or some other new tech. We will have to wait and see what this relatively new brand has in store for us.

Also, we hope that the ZUK Z2 is as affordable as the Z1. Since, its almost confirmed that the Z2 will launch in March, expect a lot more details about this upcoming flagship in the coming days.

      I talked to my friend at Blu last night. He wouldn’t give me a definite date on the S8 coming to Blu but he did say it would be one of the next Blu Vivo phones. He says it will probably be a late summer release but wouldn’t give anymore info than that.

        interesting. i can definitely wait for summer. wonder how they will price it. the Pure XL is $350, so i would guess they would price this at a premium as well, at least premium pricing for BLU. As excited as you seem to be for the S8, I will certainly keep this on my radar

          The Pure XL is based off of the E series. We can go to past Blu/Gionee Models to get a rough idea of how they will price it:

          Gionee E8 – Blu Pure XL – $349
          Gionee E7 – Blu Life Pure XL – $349

          Gionee S5.5 – Blu Vivo IV – $299
          Gionee S5.1 – Blu Vivo Air – $199
          Gionee S5.1 Pro – Blu Vivo Air LTE – $199
          Gionee S6 – Blu Vivo 5 – $199

          The have pretty much settled into the E series being the true Blu flagship for $349 and the S series being the mid range model at $199.
