Lenovo recently rolled out the Zuk Z1 handset in India, and the device should be available for purchase later this month.

The OEM opens preorders for the smartphone this Tuesday, May 10, allowing customers to make sure they get their hands on the Cyanogen OS 12.1 running device. The operating system is built on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, which will permit users to customize their devices easily.

The price point for the Zuk Z1 smartphone is Rs. 13,499 in India, the equivalent of $203. A flash sale is in tow for May 19.

The company packed a lot of value for the buck in the smartphone's configuration. For processing power, the Zuk Z1 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU running at 2.5 GHz that is backed by 3 GB of RAM.

The graphics card is an Adreno 330 that works in tandem with the 5.5-inch screen, which can display resolutions of 1,080 x 1,920p.

The standard storage Lenovo imbued the device with is 64 GB, and no microSD expansion possibility exists. Where the device shines is in its power source: the 4,100 mAh battery is one of the largest in the market and will keep your handset running for a long time.

The Zuk Z1 features dual-SIM phone supports, which means that you can use two nano-SIM cards at the same time. Connectivity-wise, you get 4G LTE support as well as free roam in Indian LTE bands.

The gadget offers Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1 and GPS support. It also sports a series of sensors ranging from proximity sensor and accelerometer to ambient light sensor, and from digital compass (magnetometer) to gyroscope.

For mobile photography fans, Lenovo gifted the smartphone with a 13-megapixel rear camera that carries Sony's IMX214 sensor, as well as an optical image stabilizer (OIS). For selfie enthusiasts, an 8-megapixel front-facing snapper is there to serve your needs.

The OIS is usually an asset of premium-class handsets, so its addition to the Zuk Z1 is commendable. Another trait of more expensive smartphones, the USB Type-C 3.0 port can be found in Lenovo's device.

One notable security feature of the Zuk Z1 is the fingerprint sensor that sits atop the home button. Fingerprint scanners used to be a staple of high-end handsets as well, but they are becoming increasingly common in medium- or low-tier devices, as well.

Lenovo does have a penchant for releasing devices with powerful specs at affordable prices. Late last month, the OEM rolled out the Zuk Z2 Pro, and you can read about it here.
