Lenovo-backed ZUK has come up with yet another smartphone, named as the ZUK Edge, unveiled at an event in China. The phone will be available in Ceramic White and Titanium Black colour options and is launched at 2299 yuan (Rs. 22460 approx.) for the 4GB RAM variant and at 2499 yuan (US$ 360 / Rs.24,420 approx.) for the 6GB RAM model. Lenovo has not yet revealed the global launch details for the ZUK Edge. In China, it will go on sale on January 1.
Regarding specifications, the ZUK Edge comes with a 5.5-inch 1080p display featuring 1.63mm narrow frame. It is powered by a 2.35 GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 821 chipset and runs the latest Android 7.0 Nougat with ZUI 2.5 skin on top. The phone sports a 13-megapixel rear camera clubbed with LED Flash, PDAF, CAF, 1.34?m pixel size, Samsung ISOCELL sensor, and f/2.2 aperture, along with an 8-megapixel selfie camera. There is a U-Touch fingerprint sensor placed beneath the Glass panel, which is touted by the company to unlock the ZUK Edge in just 0.09 seconds. Both the 4GB/6GB RAM variants come with 64GB internal storage.
Besides, the phone also packs a heart rate sensor for measuring blood oxygen levels. For connectivity, the ZUK Edge supports Dual-SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4/5 GHz), Bluetooth 4.1 LE, GPS, USB 3.1 Type-C, 3.5mm audio jack, and Dirac HD Sound for Hi-Fi audio. A 3100mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 technology backs the device.
The ZUK Edge was earlier rumoured to come with Galaxy S7 edge-like display, but ultimately ZUK did not take any inspiration from Samsung’s flagship. Currently, Lenovo is keeping mum about bringing the phone to markets like India. Lenovo’s ZUK has two phones retailing in India presently – the (ZUK) Z2 Plus and ZUK Z1.
