The Zuk Z1 brings some old hardware like the Snapdragon 801, with some new improved cameras and a good looking, robust, metal shell with a glossy back panel. The phone also comes with 64 GB of Storage (53 GB Available) and 3 GB of RAM with no expandability, Dual SIM slots and Cyanogen OS 12.1. Reminds us of OnePlus  and their launch strategy.
