Lenovo ZUK Z1 to launch internationally after pre-order success in CHina

Lenovo ZUK Z1 will launch on the international market soon and it appears to be a small success in China already. After selling over 2 million devices via pre-orders in one week, Lenovo decided to move its device up a bit and release it for the entire world to enjoy.

The ZUK Z1 will run on a Cyanogen OS version and it is a pretty decent smartphone for people who need a smart device with decent specs. It’s not a flagship however, although it does present some flagship-worthy features. You get a 5.5 inch 1080p LCD screen and under the hood you will find a Snapdragon 801 plus 3 GB of RAM and 64GB internal storage. The back camera is a 13MP snapper and is accompanied by an 8MP snapper in the front. Everything is powered by a sturdy 4100 mAh. Lenovo’s device has a fingerprint sensor on the front plus a USB Type-C 3.0 on the bottom.

 

Lenovo ZUK Z1 will run on Cyanogen OS 12.1 when it starts shipping all the way in October. The phone sold on the Chinese market costs around $280 (1,799 yuan), but the rest of the world will have to pay a little more to get it. We will let you know on the exact price when we find it out.

OnePlus does not update OxygenOS soon, but Cyanogen OS tests Android 5.1 build

OxygenOS will not get its Android 5.1 update until the OnePlus 2 is released, but the new Cyanogen OS will be coming much sooner. After the rather violent and unexpected breakup between OnePlus and Cyanogen Inc., the former managed to release its own Oxygen OS ROM for those who already bought their devices, but their updates will be coming slow, new reports suggest.

The OnePlus 2 has not shown its face so far, but it has been officially mentioned a few times, which can only make its descent closer and closer with every passing day. This will be the first device to operate solely on OxygenOS. A new build of the ROM will come live soon and this should fix the touchscreen issue OnePlus One users have been having, but don’t expect a bump in the version number.

On the other hand, Cyanogen is moving along with the tests of Cyanogen OS 12.1 – Android 5.1 version – and it is waiting for Google certifications. The OS should be available for download “Soon”.

Note: do not confuse Cyanogen OS with CyanogenMod, the open source ROM we all love.
