Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro

Lenovo recently introduced a new ZUK collaborative flagship in the form of the ZUK Z2 Pro. The flagship has a lot more to offer than style, thanks to its Snapdragon 820 chip running the show and an option of maxing out in RAM at 6GB. Sadly, it doesn’t support microSD card storage, which is kind of a letdown, though it offers a decent range of ROM capacity on the 64 to 128GB range. The Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro isn’t technically looking to go global yet, though we can highly expect the ZUK Z2 Pro to land at around June of this year.

Vivo Xplay5 Elite

Vivo has already marked 2016 as one of their pioneering years in the smartphone industry as they recently outed the Xplay5 Elite in the western market. The Vivo Xplay5 Elite is the first smartphone to go live with 6GB of RAM so that alone is legendary on its own right. Adding to the mix is its excellent 5.43-inch QHD display and top-dog Snapdragon 820 chip on the side.

The Xplay5 Elite has a 16MP/5MP camera pairing, which seems standard at this point-in-time for smartphones, but it does shoot 4K videos, which takes things a bit higher for the Xplay5 Elite. There isn’t any particular news if the Xplay5 Elite will go global or at least land in Asia, though it should be an interesting phone to see here.
