Another contender coming
We just got word that ZUK, a Chinese smartphone brand, is coming to the Philippines soon. The company, a collaborative effort between Lenovo and Qihoo 360, is Lenovo’s attempt to compete with Xiaomi’s internet sales approach. In line with their PH arrival, they’re releasing an international version of their Z1 smartphone to the PH for PHP 15,299.

The Z1 is a great first offering, considering that this particular phone has a reversible USB Type-C connector, as well as a 13-megapixel rear camera that’s powered by Sony and 3GB of RAM. The only pain point really is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor in it that isn’t that power efficient, but that’s not really a big deal considering the phone has a rather large 4100mAh battery. We’ll be seeing the phone in the flesh in the next few days, stand by for our impressions till then.
