The last rumors we heard about the ZUK Z2 suggested that the phone would be launching with an Exynos 8890 processor. Well, that’s not correct, as Lenovo’s ZUK arm has officially revealed that the Z2 will instead carry a Snapdragon processor. The company posted a launch poster on Weibo, mentioning the launch date as 31st May.
So yes, the ZUK Z2 is launching on the last day of this month, and the invites have been sent out. The poster clearly shows the Qualcomm Snapdragon logo on it, but it does not mention the exact processor that the Z2 will come with. In Chinese, the poster reads “small screen flagship”, which could mean that the phone will either get a Snapdragon 652 or less likely a Snapdragon 820 processor. We know that the phone will be a budget smartphone, so Snapdragon 652 seems the best guess.
It is being said that the ZUK Z2 will come with a 4.7-inch Full HD screen, 3GB RAM, and 32GB internal storage. It is expected to flaunt a large 4100mAh battery and might get a 2.5D arc glass design. It may get a 13MP rear and an 8MP front camera, and there might be a fingerprint sensor on the back with smart gestures.
Rumors say that the ZUK Z2 price will be set around CNY 1799 ($274), but that’s not official too. The phone will be launched on 31st May at 13:00 local time China, so we’ll find out the rest of the details soon.
