Lenovo’s ZUK was born out of the need to offer consumers a high-end experience at an affordable price point, a mantra that OnePlus, Xiaomi and most of the other Chinese manufacturers swear by. Today Lenovo has launched the iterative upgrade for its Zuk series in India, the Lenovo Z2 Plus, priced at Rs 17,999 for 3GB/32GB variant and Rs 19,999 for the 4GB/64GB variant. Before the Lenovo branding confuses you, let’s make it clear, Lenovo Z2 Plus is nothing but a rebranded version of the ZUK Z2 launched in China a couple of months ago.
The Lenovo Z2 Plus comes equipped with a 5-inch FHD display along with curved glass 2.5D fibreglass back. Under the hood the Z2 Plus is powered by the top of the line Snapdragon 820 clocked at an impressive 2.15GHz and paired with 3GB/4GB of RAM. On the storage front, the device offers a choice between 32GB/64GB internal storage alongside a hybrid SIM slot. Lenovo Z2 Plus is fitted with a fingerprint sensor that also doubles up as a customisable shortcut button. Furthermore, Lenovo has also introduced a Roll Cage into the phone chassis (just like in race cars) and this is expected to protect the innards in case of a fall or a sudden impact.

Camera setup in the Z2 Plus includes a 13-Megapixel primary sensor with EIS, PDAF, f/2.2 aperture and an 8-Megapixel secondary sensor with a f/2.0 aperture. Powering the device is a 3,500mAh battery that also supports fast charging and claims to charge 80 percent in one hour. The device comes studded with the usual bevy of connectivity including 4G LTE, USB 2.0 Type-C port, 4G LTE and Bluetooth v4.1. Another interesting observation is that the Lenovo Z2 Plus unlike the Zuk Z2 will not be powered by Cyanogen OS and instead will be run on near stock Android Marshmallow.
