Lenovo has launched the Z2 Plus smartphone in India at an event held in Delhi. It is the rebranded version of the ZUK Z2 phone which is already available in China. The USP of the Z2 Plus is that it is the world’s cheapest Snapdragon 820 powered smartphone with a starting price of Rs. 17,999 in India.
The Lenovo Z2 Plus sports a 5-inch Full HD display. There are two models of the phone: 3GB RAM with 32GB storage and 4GB RAM with 64GB storage. It is worth mentioning that none of the models support storage expansion via microSD card.
It has a 13MP camera at the back with dual-LED flash, phase detection autofocus, and EIS. On the front, you will find an 8MP camera. Lenovo has also made changes on the software front as the Z2 Plus runs almost stock Marshmallow and will ship with Google Now launcher in India, instead of the Cyanogen OS like the ZUK Z1 phone last year.
The whole package is powered by a 3500mAh battery and to avoid the situation of overcharging, the phone automatically switches stops charging once it reaches 100% mark. It also features a fingerprint scanner that can be configured for up to 7 functions other than fingerprint scanning.
The Lenovo Z2 Plus is an Amazon India exclusive and will go on sale starting September 26th. The 3GB/32GB variant has been priced at Rs. 17,999 and 4GB/64GB variant has been priced at Rs. 19,999.
