The Chinese smartphone manufacturer Lenovo is quite popular when it comes to sort of the budget-centric phones in India. As far as the global scenario is concerned, Lenovo is again a well-recognized brand and after the Motorola acquisition, we have been seeing some huge advancements in their progress as a company. And now when it comes to different mobile units of Lenovo, there are a few others and ZUK is one of them. ZUK is again a known unit and has launched quite a few devices.
In case if you don’t know what ZUK is, it was founded in 2015 and so far, they have a bunch of smartphone under their name like the ZUK Z1, ZUK Z2, ZUK Z2 Pro, etc. The company also just recently launched the ZUK Edge which is again a premium looking device with an edge display. However, the new reports suggest that the company may be shutting down real soon. Yes, you read that right, ZUK Mobile unit is going to shut down very soon or at least that’s what an analyst predicts.
According to the new report which we have, it looks like the ZUK Z3 is not coming. A weibo conversation has apparently revealed this info and not just that, it also states that the reason behind the same is the fact that company is going to shut down as well. So now what happens when the unit shuts down? Well, all the future smartphones will be released with Lenovo, Moto branding. And this makes complete sense since it’s all a part of Lenovo anyway.
And this is not taking us by surprise since this was already something which Lenovo had planned earlier. The company already planned this since they were having trouble in getting some profits. However, earlier, it was planned that only Moto and Lenovo will unite and now it looks like we have ZUK also onboard. And interestingly the ZUI on the ZUK phones will continue to live as the user interface will be integrated into upcoming Moto phones. So if you are into that, then you should keep an eye out for this.
Having said that, we would like to know what do you tink about this. Does the fact that ZUK is shutting down bother you? Be sure to let us know by dropping a comment down below and also be sure to stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more info like this.
