Lenovo put an end to its ZUK sub-brand more than a year ago and the last ZUK phone was released at the end of 2016. But these phones are getting new updates, even in 2018! After updating ZUK Z2, Z2 Pro and Edge to Android Oreo (just to remind you, the first two phones were released with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box!), the Chinese company has released a new minor stable version of ZUI, the custom user interface found on these handsets.
In case you don’t know, this UI is still being adopted by Lenovo on some of its recently-released smartphones. The new ZUI update based on Android 8.0 Oreo brings the number of version to 3.5.376 and, despite the fact that it is a minor version, it also brings several improvements. The update is available for ZUK Z2, Z2 Pro, and Edge and one of its main focuses is reducing energy consumption.
Indeed, in the changelog, the team has mentioned an “optimization of system power consumption” as well as an improvement of the adaptive brightness and the battery charging system. There are also several bug fixes in the new ZUI update, and graphics changes for a better user experience. Also, the U Health app has been improved as well.
