It has been a while since the Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro received the update to Android 7.0 Nougat, however, it appears that the tech giant is busy testing the newer v7.1.1 on the same phone, with the release set to happen very soon.
This is not coming from the Chinese company, however, the fact that the Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro has made a stop at the GFXBench benchmarking platform with Android 7.1.1 Nougat on board plainly suggests that the OS is currently being tested. If there’s no hiccup along the way, the stable release should be out in the coming weeks.
It might be known to few, probably in China and some parts of Asia, however, Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro is one of the best phones that money can buy right now. Launched in 2016, the ZUK Z2 Pro came in preinstalled with Android 6.0 Marshmallow, but as noted earlier, the update to Nougat was made available earlier this year.
With the Nougat OS, the ZUK Z2 Pro is definitely set to be more than just a powerhouse in terms of performance. This is true because all you get on the phone are flagship specs and features. These include an impressive 5.2-inch Super AMOLED display screen that has a resolution of 1080p and is protected by Corning’s Gorilla Glass technology.
Under the hood, the Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro packs the impressive Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC that is clocked at a speed of 2.15GHz. This is then paired with an Adreno 530 GPU for flawless gaming and up to 6GB RAM, although the base model has 4GB RAM. As for storage, you get either 64GB or 128GB, but there’s no microSD card slot.
The back of the Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro ships with a 13MP sensor that boasts a large f/1.8 aperture, OIS, PDAF, and dual-tone LED flash. This sensor can also record up to 4K videos, but the front’s 8MP can only deliver 1080p videos. You’ll also get great selfies at f/2.0 aperture. To keep the ZUK Z2 Pro alive is an impressive 3100mAh battery unit that can be charged via USB-C and thanks to Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 technology, you get up to 83% of battery power in just 30 minutes of charging the phone.
