A few months after outing an oak-themed variant, Lenovo-based ZUK has unveiled a new Sandalwood version of its Z1 smartphone. The premium looking variant carries an RMB 1,599 price tag in China, which translates into around $250 at current exchange rates.

Specs-wise, the new variant is more or less similar to the standard variant with SD801 SoC, 5.5-inch 1080p display, 4GB/64GB memory configuration, 13MP/8MP camera combo, and a large 4,100mAh battery. It runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out of the box with ZUI 1.6 atop.

The handset will be available from ZUK’s official website as well the company’s flagship stores. First 50 online buyers will get free Skullcandy earphone while the next 50 buyers will receive an original leather case for free.
