ZUK, one of Lenovo Group's smartphone brands founded last year, launched a product tailored for the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in Beijing.

The ZUK Z2 Rio version is a small-screen flagship, equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 processor and 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM.

Priced at 1,599 yuan ($240), the online subscription has begun and first shipment will be made on August 2.

"ZUK Z2 has been one of the most cost-effective smartphone products on the market. With the approaching Rio Games, the Z2 Rio version will offer users more tailored Olympic products and services," said Chen Yu, vice-president of Lenovo Group who is in charge of mobile product development.

During the Olympic Games, about 100 journalists will use the Z2 Rio version to file on-the-spot reports, Chen added.

For the convenience of users who will travel to Brazil to watch the events, the Z2 Rio version supports the networks of all five major carriers there and provides unlimited transfers at the price of 25 yuan per day.
