For some reason, Chinese manufacturers have decided to make April an exciting month for fans. After the release of Huawei P9, Meizu Pro 6 and M3 Note, we will soon be seeing Nubia Z11 series phones as well as LeEco devices later this month. Now add ZUK Z2 Pro to the list as the phone is confirmed to meet us on April 21, which is exactly a week away.
Like tradition, ZUK CEO is not wasting any opportunity to promote its upcoming flagship. Last year, CEO Chang Cheng had revealed renders of the ZUK Z1 before launch. Now, continuing with the tradition, he has just revealed a new render for the ZUK Z2 Pro. Design seems to be a different than the previous generation and the phone does look sleeker. However, we hope that doesn’t come at a compromise in the battery capacity since we loved ZUK Z1’s large battery inside.
The new render does reveal some information about the upcoming handset. First of all, it looks like the Z2 Pro will come with 2.5D glass up front. At the back, we can see a camera sensor, dual tone LED flash as well as what looks like Laser Autofocus. One interesting thing is that we don’t see a fingerprint sensor at the back, which most likely means that the phone will come with a home button embedded fingerprint ID up front. Because, in 2016, no manufacturer can afford to skip on an important feature such as a fingerprint sensor.
Now, alongside the render, CEO Chang has written Tremble xx5, x9, xxx6. This is directed at the three important Chinese flagships in the market right now, namely the Xiaomi ‘Mi5’, Huawei ‘P9’ and the Meizu ‘Pro6’. Looks like Cheng believes that the ZUK Z2 Pro can beat these three devices.
As for the specs, the phone should come with Snapdragon 820 with 3GB /4GB RAM options, 32GB storage, 1080p screen and 13MP rear camera. These specs were revealed by yesterday’s AnTuTu listing, but we hope to get more details pretty soon.
So do you like the new design on the Z2 Pro?
