Lenovo owns three smartphone brands, all with a certain degree of autonomy. These are the Vibe line, Motorola with its Moto and ZUK. In an effort to try to bring the various brands under its domain, Lenovo is surprisingly experimenting with ZUK software and UI on Motorola Moto Z line smartphones.
At the moment, the flagship Motorola Moto Z is the best smartphone the brand has to offer, while Moto Z Play is its mid-range smartphone. According to Chinese sources, Moto Z are testing a new interface in China, a new software that is already used by ZUK smartphones.

In addition to the various smartphone brands now under Lenovo's direction, the brand is trying to minimize the differences between the software (UI) of each of them. Lenovo devices (Vibe line) and ZUK smartphones use the Vibe and ZUI interfaces, respectively. We now know that at least Motorola Moto Z smartphones sold in China will receive and use ZUI (ZUK interface).
However, at least for now, Motorola Moto Z sold outside China will continue to use its very clean interface and close to pure Android, something that all Motorola users cherish.
Remember that Lenovo should put an end to its Vibe line, so stop developing its Vibe UI software. Now, as soon as this happens, China-based Motorola Moto Zs will use the ZUI. Last week Lenovo chose 25 beta testers to try out ZUK software on Motorola Moto Z modular smartphones.
Finally, ZUK launched a few weeks ago the ZUK Edge in China with 4 or 6GB of RAM, Snapdragon 821 processor, 5.5 inch Full-HD (1920x1080p) screen protected by Gorilla Glass, 13MP cameras and 8MP. Its operating system is Android 7.0 Nougat with ZUI 2.5 interface which may soon reach some Motorola Moto Z.
