The folks at Cyanogen have come a long way from being a mere Android ROM. These days the company has started to partner up with various OEMs to preload Cyanogen OS on their devices, as we have seen in the past with OnePlus and Yu in India. Recently the company has announced a new partnership with ZUK.
For those unfamiliar with ZUK, they are a company that makes smartphones and have gained some attention due to the fact that they are backed by Lenovo. In fact recently ZUK showed off a prototype handset with a transparent display. That being said, ZUK’s partnership with Lenovo will now see Cyanogen OS 12.1 preloaded onto its international version of the ZUK Z1 smartphone.
For those who are hearing about the ZUK Z1, it’s a pretty decent handset. It’s not exactly a flagship killer but it should be more than capable of getting the job done. For starters it will come with a 5.5-inch Full HD display. Under the hood, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor will run the show with 3GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and will sport a 13MP rear-facing camera that utilizes Sony’s IMX214 sensor.
It will also pack a sizable 4,100mAh battery, USB-C connector, and a fingerprint scanner. Best of all, it is expected to be priced at $280 meaning that if you wanted a decently specced Cyanogen phone, this could be it.
