Unlike the Chinese market where it is sold as the Zuk Z1, the smartphone in India will be dubbed Lenovo Zuk Z1. The biggest highlight of the Lenovo Zuk Z1 is that it runs Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, which means that users will get many options to customise their phones.

Under the hood, the Zuk Z1 smartphone packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz with integrated Adreno 330 graphics, coupled with 3GB of RAM. The Lenovo Z1 packs 64GB of inbuilt storage, but there's no option for storage expansion. Another notable feature of the Lenovo Zuk Z1 smartphone is that it packs large 4100mAh battery. The dual-SIM phone supports two Nano-SIM cards, both of which support 4G LTE connectivity and Indian LTE bands - FDD Band 3 (1800MHz) and TDD Band 40 (2300MHz).


The smartphone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with a Sony IMX214 sensor and optical image stabilisation (OIS), a feature usually found only in high-end smartphones. There is also an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. The Zuk Z1 smartphone weighs 175 grams and measures 155.7x77.3x8.9mm.
