Announced officially in China last August, the ZUK Z1 was made ready for purchase in France and Spain via eBay earlier this month soon after ZUK and Cyanogen announced their official partnership.
The Lenovo-backed and Cyanogen-powered smartphone caught our attention because it was hinted to have some 4xxx mAh battery. True enough, the phone launched with a 4100 mAh battery which is huge and high-capacity for a small unit. And now, the rest of Europe will be able to get their hands on the Cyanogen OS-running ZUK Z1 via Amazon.
The international version of the Z1 is powered by Cyanogen OS compared to the local Chinese version that runs a custom ZUI. Amazon.co.uk has finally listed the phone and is now ready to ship in Italy, Germany, United Kingdom, France, and Spain. Current promo price is EUR 299.99 ($342) which makes it a mid-range phone.
