Elephone Zuk_Z1Mobile phone manufacturer Elephone will now be promoting Lenovo’s new smartphone brand Zuk as confirmed by a message on social network Facebook. This comes as a surprise because Elephone and Zuk are competing brands.

The Zuk Z1 was launched in China last week and it will be launched internationally any time this week. Android Headlines reports that the international version of the Zuk Z1 will vary from the model launched in Beijing primarily because it will run on the Cyanogen OS.

Working much like the Xiaomi model, Zuk will be selling the Z1 online. It has a 5.5-inch display along with a fingerprint scanner.
