Lenovo today announced that the Z1 smartphone powered by ZUK will launch in India on May 10th. It will be a crowd sourced launch that will allow its fans to launch the phone. The smartphone was launched first in china as ZUK Z1 back in August last year. Micromax’s sub-brand Yu Televentures has been offering Cyanogen OS exclusively in India since November 2014, but Zuk Z1 will also now be coming with  Cyanogen 12.1 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop.
