Lenovo Zuk Z1 Launched in Pakistan for Rs. 34,999

As of today, Cheezmall has officially launched the Zuk Z1 in Pakistan. The Lenovo-backed Zuk smartphone brand has seen great success in China and other countries. Pakistan is one the very few countries where the phone is being officially launched.

Just as a reminder, the Zuk Z1 offers a premium build quality and last generation flagship specs. They offer some extras to make the Z1 a better buy, since the company intentionally chose to go with last generation’s processor to avoid the over-heating fiasco of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810.

The Zuk Z1 comes with a 5.5-inch FullHD IPS display covered by an aircraft grade aluminium metal frame and a glossy plastic back. There’s a Snapdragon 801 and 3GB RAM powering the device. Zuk makes up for the last gen processor by adding in 64GB of storage by-default.

The sports a 13 megapixels Sony lens at the back and an 8 megapixels front camera. The extra large battery stands at 4,100 mAh. Other extras include a fast charging USB Type-C (Standard 3.1), a fingerprint scanner, a gesture supporting U-touch Home key, capacitive keys and more.

There’s Cyanogen OS 12.1 (based on Lollipop 5.1) running on the phone by default. The Cyanogen OS should bring extra functionalities and theming support not available in most OEM operating systems.

More detailed coverage of the phone is available here.

    • If you’re going to point out something like that, then at least provide a reason, so that it’s actually useful. How are they looting? What makes a store more or less reliable?

      • the overall layout of the website and grammar mistakes on promotional stuff proves that they are not professional. Or it maybe that they have hired a highly unprofessional agency

      • Well A Reliable Store

        . Have Products in Stock
        . Deliver in Time
        . Display Real Pictures of Products
        . Rates are near to Local Market not 3,4 times
        . Have some Kind of Customer Support

        Unfortunately cheezmall lacks in all. There is not point of buying a product at 3 times higher price and yet wait for 45 days also.

      • Cheezmall website is vulnerable to SQL injection and every user have access to all the orders / info of other customers

        • because its available online with free worldwide deliver for around 270 something $ ,some even giving 20-30 $ discounts ,and they are selling it for 35000 with some shady chinese 10-15 dollar watch. If any one really wants this phone get any relative living in uae etc to order it there and bring it when they come here

    • agreed bcoz i have bad experience of Galaxy S5, don’t buy any cell phone from any online site in pakistan

    • haha ha ha kuch nai baray shero mai choti baatain hoti rehti hai

  • Naah. They are not looting people, compare the products quality and prices with other online markets, than you will understand that they are offering the products at much discounted rates than others, So far I have ordered items more than 40 thousands worth. Quality exceptional comparing Pakistani standard products. The processor sure is outdated but one of the fastest processors yet. THERE is no need of ultra super processor because the games and apps used in daily routine work good for this processor. On the other hand qualcom 810 processor is heating meniac.

  • Displaying 50 % off does not mean that there rates are good. They are charging way too much. Foll is a small example

    • The huge battery, internal memory, build quality…. Finger print sensor….
      I think no match between the two.

  • Though the phone looks gr8 but I dont like cheezmall. Whats the problem with lenovo pakistan? Why dont they bring it here officially??

    • it IS here OFFICIALLY !
      consider yourself v.lucky they chose to introduce ZUK here … since there was only a wild chance they would do so… ZUK works the same way the OnePlus does , online sales only to cut costs.

      ofcourse this model is a bit out dated but the Z2 will be awesome … and thanks to this official intro of the Z1 , we’ll get the Z2 here as well !

  • hey ProPakistani, can you please tell me, will other online stores also bring ZUK Z1 to Pakistan? Or this will remain a CheezMall exclusive? Someone please reply.

    • hopefully other stores will get some common sense and business acumen knocked into them …. but until then its all cheezmall

  • i consider myself lucky not to have ordered ANYTHING from cheezmall ….

    would like to see more chinese brands tho.

    and that Headline is quite misleading :p its NOT the most high tech phone !

  • RS 35k for a year old phone powered by a two year old SoC? I rather buy S6 , Note 4 or a G4 (& many other options) for this much money.
