The Premium Lenovo Zuk Z1 Smartphone is Coming to Pakistan via Cheezmall

When OnePlus became a hit, Lenovo followed its footsteps to create its own startup, Zuk, which works in a similar manner. Lenovo-backed Zuk released the Z1 late last year and the phone has been a hit both locally in China and internationally. Now, Cheezmall is bringing the phone to Pakistan with freebies that are worth over Rs. 7,000.

Zuk Z1 might not cost as much as a typical flagship phone, but its build quality definitely remind you of a premium phone. The phone comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p IPS display in a CNC machined aviation grade aluminum frame which went through 15 procedures and 209 operations. The back is made of a curved glossy plastic material.

In terms of specifications, the Z1 boasts a Snapdragon 801 coupled with 3GB of RAM. Zuk chose the Snapdragon 801 because the chipset has none of the problems faced by Qualcomm’s recent processors like 808 or 810.

The phone comes with 64GB of storage eliminating the need of a micro SD card. There’s a humongous 4,100 mAh battery inside the 8.9 mm thin body which should make the phone last for days. The battery can be charged via the bundled 2.5A fast charger, thanks to the use of a USB Type-C port which supports the USB 3.1 standard.

Zuk says that 5 min of charging should be sufficient for 2 hours of calling.

The camera department features a 13MP Sony IMX214 camera, the same one used by OnePlus One, and has Optical Image Stabilization (OIS) as well. There’s an 8MP front facing camera as well.

A unique entry into the mix is the U-Touch key. The button has a built-in fingerprint sensor. It’s of the touch variety, so multiple functions are supported. A simple touch means back, a press translates to home button, double tap can be used to open task switcher and swipes can be used to switch between apps. Those who like the traditional method of operation can use the user-assignable capacitive keys as well.

Zuk chose to go with Cyanogen OS, again, just like the OnePlus One. The phone currently runs version 12.1 based on Lollipop 5.1 but a Marshmallow upgrade is close to release and the beta is already available for download.

Cheezmall will offer some free extras along with the Zuk Z1 on launch day. These are:

  • Free Smartwatch, which typically costs Rs 4,999
  • Free 12GB Zong Internet for 6 months, which usually costs Rs 2,100 (2GB/month)

  • The first step taken by Cheezmall to introduce itself as a serious contender in Pakistani e-commerce landscape.

    • Chezmall is chay mall. They still don’t have Xiaomi phones which they created hype for. Their rush hour deals are sooo pathetic and overpriced. There’s nothing one can like about this cheat mall.

      • No comparison of Daraz & Kaymu with cheezmal

        Both are multinational companies and cheezmall is just like assignment project of ecommerce just a domain and copied template from net

  • Awsome Deal I must say, Free Smart watch. Book me First !!!! In market the minimum price of such phone is 45k

  • Wese aaj koi bakwas nahee kara hai cheezmall khilaaf, Lagta hai cheezmall ka massive launch or ye offer dekh kar kaymu daraz walon ki band hogyee hai. Becharon ka infinix ab kon lega, Smart watch mera khyal hai ab unko bhi deni chaye cheezmall nay standard rakh dia hai boss

I beg you please you are the last hoe of online shopping in Pakistan please meri tarha or awam ka bhi trust online shopping per le aao. may flourish in pakistan and dushmano ka moo kala jo k hona shuru bhi hogeya hai

  • Cheezmall is the best mall I must say now because meney khud bhi personally enka launch visit kia hai or mje kehna prega k Lahore ko poorey rock kerdia hai, let me also share some of the images I have,

  • Roxen and QB Performance made the event unforgettable. Also The presentation on Ecommerce in the world by Alibaba Guy made my Day !

    • hahahah yeah they have only 1 employee who had multiple id

      khokhay pe afford thori kar sakte hain iss se zaida

        • I can sense your happiness first time aik phone jo sale kar rahay hain its just like “khusrain kar bacha hoya te chum chum maar deta” lolzzz

  • Dont lie .where is evidence
    have u ever know alibaba

    cheezmall looks like result of any school assignment of a teenager

    they even dont know how to run eshop


  • Agreed. Cheezmall Rocks ! No doubt about it or daraz kaymu rote hi rahengy hmesha. Kam to hota nahee fake Ids banakr bechare bakwas hi kersakty hai. tabhi to For Sale per baat agyee hai becharon ki

  • in all the ages since it launched … cheezmall has been pathetically slow and morbid in bringing phones from china !

    i believe they should have done a better job. atm they are shambolic !

    take nothing away from ZUK tho , a v.exciting venture launched in 2015 … the Z2 is said to be even more beastly !

    Z1 is a good phone if you’re not concerned with the 801 being 32 bit and the phone itself being a 5-6 month old release.

  • CheezMall mobile brand WileyFox le kr ae in Pakistan to manu, UAE and Mideast mn PKR 14,000 Rs ka WileyFox Swift mlta ha, jo k Asia and Turkey mn 2nd Generation Android One device bhi ha. CheezMall be the first, please bring WileyFox Swift to Pakistan at better price and discount offers.

  • CheezMall is run by very amateur people. Ordered Zuk Z1 in space gray colour on 18th July. I received “White Colour” on 29th. Logged complaint same day and till date haven’t received the ordered colour. Icing the cake, their courier company BlueEx picked the white phone on 11th August and today (16th August) I have been told that BlueEx says they didn’t pick the product. They have money, they have the phone, and I am left with prayers to get either my money or the phone (I will prefer getting back money). Terrible shopping experience. It was of much convenience to order the phone from China and get NOC from PTA for custom clearance. May Allah be with the people buying from CheezMall.

  • Thanks for the news :)
    Nomu mobile has recently launched 3 smartphones models and they poted perfect video on youtube of Nomu Mobile Toughness and IP68 Water-proof Test Collection.
