The Vice President of Lenovo, Chang Cheng, is our favorite person to watch on Wiebo as he just loves to say random things for the publicity. This is the person who insinuated the Lenovo Z5 would be the first smartphone with an “all screen” display by showing us a design sketch of what the device was said to look like. This didn’t end up being true as the Z5 went on to have the trendy notch that we’ve been seeing so much of lately. A couple of months ago he claimed that the world’s first 5G smartphone would be coming from Lenovo thanks to the Snapdragon 855 SoC and we’re still waiting to see if that ends up being true or not. The man’s latest announcement is about his company’s OEM ROM known as ZUI. We’re told that the new ZUI 4.0 update will begin its beta rollout for select devices by the end of this week.
Which, as is no surprise to anyone, is already proof that Lenovo’s Vice President Chang Cheng over promised and under delivered. It was back in March of this year when he said the company’s newly updated ZUI 4.0 would begin landing on devices in July. This announcement was made during the company’s Lenovo S5 launch event. But as you guessed it, that update was delayed and didn’t first start hitting devices until the launch of the Lenovo Z5 a couple of months ago.
This new announcement focuses on which devices will be eligible for the beta version of ZUI 4.0 “by the end of this week.” If things are currently on schedule, this includes the Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro and Lenovo ZUK Z2. If you currently own the Lenovo ZUK Edge then Chang Cheng says you will be eligible for the ZUI 4.0 update sometime next week. Those who are interested in this new OTA can look forward to an update that is said to be optimized for a faster and better UX and enhancements that have reduced the power consumption of the system while also improving the overall stability.
