LOS ANGELES, Oct. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — ZmBIZI (zam-bee-zee), the minority-owned technology company unifying mobile hardware, social purpose, and cutting-edge fintech, today announces the launch of its first flagship smartphone, the Z2. In an era of smartphones that look alike and share a common feature set, the Z2 stands apart.
ZmBIZI is the “phone that pays you.” Users can now earn an average of $10 per month in cash rewards for the searching, sharing and shopping they do in the ZmBIZI app ecosystem. Every Z2 phone comes with its own free Visa Debit Card, ensuring the user can redeem and spend their rewards anywhere that accepts Visa. In addition, the ZmBIZI Z2 is also a smart point-of-sale terminal; for the first time, approved U.S. small businesses can now accept contactless payments directly on their ZmBIZI smartphone1.
The Z2 is ZmBIZI’s first full-production handset following a successful beta program with more than 1000 of its Z1 model units sold. The Z1 introduced ZmBIZI’s technology for accepting TAP and PAY™ directly from Visa and Mastercard as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay. In conjunction with Visa, ZmBIZI became the first smartphone brand in the U.S. to accept contactless payments via the Visa Tap to Phone pilot in Washington, D.C. in June 2021.
“ZmBIZI is harnessing the power of today’s mobile economy and sharing that revenue with its users,” said Alpesh Patel, co-founder and CEO of ZmBIZI. “As a minority-owned business, we are thrilled to pioneer this space and lower barriers to accessibility with a new revolutionary category in smartphone technology.”
In addition to its unique fintech integrations, the Z2 also features powerful hardware at an accessible price point. Whether you’re listening to music, watching movies, or gaming, the ZmBIZI Z2 is ready with its 6.67″ FHD+ display and a 4400mAH battery that can keep up with even the heaviest usage.
For memories that are meant to be remembered forever, the ZmBIZI Z2 comes with a 64MP quad camera, equipped with portrait mode, night mode, beauty mode, HDR and more. Switch to video mode and users can leverage specialized, never-before-seen Interactive Gesture video technology and editing for an immersive experience.
