Lenovo’s Vibe-series of smartphones have done well in several markets including India. The Chinese company had last month announced that it sold 500,000 units of the Vibe K4 Note smartphone that went on sale in India in January. Apart from the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note, the company also revealed that it sold 100,000 units of the Ant virtual reality (VR) headsets (Review) that were also individually available via Amazon India.
The company las month launched the Zuk Z1 smartphone in India, priced at Rs. 13,499. The biggest highlight of the Lenovo Zuk Z1 was that it ran Cyanogen OS 12.1 based on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, which meant that users will get many options to customise their phones.
