After bringing out the budget smartphone in India just today, Lenovo is now all set to unveil a premium offering later this week. The smartphone manufacturer is sending out invites for a launch event to be held in Delhi. The device to be launched at this event is the Lenovo Z2 Plus.
The Z2 Plus is the Indian version of the ZUK Z2 smartphone and also the successor to the Lenovo ZUK Z1 launched last year in India. When asked about this change of name, Anuj Sharma, Head of Product Marketing, Smartphones, Lenovo MBG India said:
“Once we are getting into a particular price band, we want to make sure consumers know the brand. We want to sell the phone. We are not bringing the device as token flagship as India is still a big market for us. However, Zuk branding will be there on the box, with the text ‘Powered by Zuk’ as a hat tip for the Zuk team.”
Two variants of the device will be launched: 3GB/32GB and 4GB/64GB. Both of them will however share some features: dual SIM card slot, pre-installed Google Now launcher and gesture shortcuts via the fingerprint scanner.
