YU and Cyanogen Go Through Breakup Says Lenovo

Browse This Page

YU Televentures and Cyanogen seem to be going through a breakup it seems, as Lenovo is shouting that ZUK smartphones with Cyanogen are India bound. The 2014 YU and Cyanogen exclusive partnership left OnePlus in dirty muddy waters struggling to launch the OnePlus One in the region.

This could also mean that the company’s next handset seen running Android 5.1 may or may not come with Cyanogen.  Lenovo is working on its online brand ZUK for a while and will be launching in India soon.

The ZUK Z1 running Cyanogen 12.1 based on Android 5.1 Lollipop and comes with 64 GB of storage for a price of Rs. 18500 approximately in China. However it is expected to hit the Indian market for roughly Rs. 19,999.

    Oh yeah? Come to YU forums, you’ll have a different answer then

  • Humza Qureshi

    Good decision by Cyanogen, Zuk Z1 is a good handset, but if it’s priced at 19999, it would not be successful, as it’s using SD801 32bit architecture and old specs. If they price it around 12-13k it would be a good buy…

  • Harshith K R Upadhyay

    CyanogenOS and Cyanogen mod are two different stories

  • Hrishikesh Pendse

    Good decision by Cyanogen, NOT being exclusive to single brand

  • Anshuman Shukla

    this is what you get for backstabbing one plus

  • Osama Mirza

    Maybe yu was badly hit by coolpad, letv and yes mi rn3, and thus they broke up with cyanogen. Just to cut out some cost. Also, yureka was the only handset yu was able to sell , after that all the devices were just secs sheet and nothing else.

    Actually CyanogenMod is available for a lot of devices. You need to be rooted.
    download.cyanogenmod.org

  • Dipanjan Ray

    IF YOU ARE ROOTED AND YOUR DEVICE IS QUITE FAMOUS AMONG DEVELOPERS THEN THIS SHOULDN’T BE ANY PROBLEM.

  • Dipanjan Ray

    CYANOGENMOD 12.1 IS AVAILABLE FOR K3 NOTE BUT YOU NEED TO ROOT YOUR DEVICE FIRST TO FLASH THE ROM.

  • Mustufa Bhavnagarwala
