Chinese startup ZUK backed by Lenovo launches the Z1
Designed for power-users, the ZUK Z1 features a fingerprint sensor, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 64GB eMMC storage, 4100mAh battery and a USB 3.0 Type-C port. The handset is priced at RMB 1799 and will go on sale in China on August 18. The international version is expected to be released soon.

ZUK Z1 features a unique variant of the Android home button, the U-Touch, with its fingerprint sensor, combining home, back, menu, app switching and multi-tasking into one single button.

The U-Touch has a 508 DPI low-power fingerprint sensor offering 0.31s identification speed with high accuracy. U-Touch comes equipped with TEE certification environment in chip's TrustZone. The fingerprint sensor enables secure e-payment via e-payment methods, including Alipay and JD Wallet.

ZUK Z1's standard edition offers 64GB storage and 4100mAh polymer battery. Recharging the phone for 5-minutes will enable 120-minutes of talk time. Optimization extends battery life by another 20% above average.

ZUK Z1 is the world's first mobile phone supporting USB 3.0 Type-C, enabling a 500MB/s bandwidth, 10 times faster than USB 2.0. With USB OTG, Z1 can even be used to power other mobile phones.

In addition, with Qualcomm's flagship platform, Z1 supports Dual SIM Dual Standby, and users do not need to identify the primary and secondary SIM cards when mounting them.

Z1 comes assembled with a 13-million-pixel stacked CMOS rear camera and professional OIS optical image stabilization system with Largent lenses. It takes only 0.5s to be ready for use, and focus completes in 0.3 seconds. The 8 million-pixel front camera with a large aperture of f/2.2 and pixel size of 1.4-μm delivers clearer selfies. Built-in photo-retouching brings out the best in any image.

ZUI is a highly customized user interface designed by ZUK based on Android 5.1.1. The designers took the picture frame concept a step further and re-designed the unique lock screen. It comes with 1,500+ redesigned icons best fitting ZUI's "simplicity is beauty" concept. The device also features automatic privacy protection, system cleanup and memory acceleration.
