Lenovo recently introduced its ZUK brand in India by launching the Z1 smartphone. Now, the company is gearing up to unveil what seems like an affordable variant of the ZUK Z2 Pro, launched in China last month. ZUK CEO has been building the hype by teasing different aspects of the smartphone, and his latest teaser talks about the chipset that will power the device.

ZUK CEO Chang Cheng took to Weibo to hint the chipset powering the ZUK Z2, and it is one that surprises. Where the ZUK Z1 and the Z2 Pro are powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors, the upcoming ZUK Z2 will have Samsung’s Exynos chipset onboard. The smartphone will be powered by the Exynos 8890 chipset, which also powers Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S7 smartphone. Also Read - Lenovo Yoga Slim 7i Carbon Review: Stylish, Slim, Super Performer
Interestingly, ZUK’s Cheng has also tagged Meizu VP Li Nan in his post writing how he found the chipset to be “good” after spending a day with the smartphone. Meizu recently launched the MediaTek Helio X25-powered Pro 6 smartphones, but there have been rumors about an Exynos-powered variant as well.
An earlier teaser hinted at a design that is not very unlike the Z2 Pro, and featuring a body covered in 2.5D curved glass and a metal frame. An earlier leak also hinted at a rotating camera setup, similar to the OPPO N3. Details are scarce at the moment, but with an Exynos 8890 chipset onboard, we don’t expect the Z2 to skimp on the specifications and features front. There’s no word on a launch date either, but with the number of teasers we have come across, we don’t expect it to be too far into the future.
