Micromax’s sub-brand Yu Televentures has been offering Cyanogen OSÂ exclusively in India since November 2014, but that isn’t going to be the case for much longer. Lenovo backed ZUK is entering India with its Zuk Z1 smartphone which is going to feature Cyanogen 12.1 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
The Zuk Z1 was launched first in china for 1799 Yuan (285$) for the 64GB version. We can expect the company to price the smartphone at around this range only in India.

They will only be launching a 64GB variant this time. CyanogenModÂ is built upon an open source base which offers many themes and lot of customization’s, but we are sure many of you know this already. AlsoÂ more than six vendors, both local and international, would launch phones running Cyanogen OS in the country throughout 2016 said Cyanogen CEO Kirt McMaster’s in December. The Â Cyanogen team will have 60 people in their team by December 2016, which should make that a fairly easy feat.
