The Lenovo ZUK Edge smartphone has been finally launched in the Chinese market. The new ZUK Edge smartphone, which had been teased by Lenovo for a while now, will go on sale from January 1 in China and is only available to pre-order now. The latest ZUK smartphone will be made available in Ceramic White and Titanium Crystal Black colour variants.
Lenovo ZUK Edge Specifications:
Display: The 5.5-inch 1080 full HD dual-curved display on the ZUK Edge makes up 86.4 percent of the entire device’s body. The ZUK Edge has kept the top and bottom bezels to a minimum.
Processor and Software: Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm’s 2.35GHz Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB/6GB of RAM. Software-wise, the device runs Android 7.0 Nougat.
Storage: The Lenovo ZUK Edge comes packed with 32GB/64GB of onboard storage. The only real disappointment on its hardware is that the handset doesn’t come with a microSD card slot for expanding that 32GB/64GB internal storage.
Camera: As for optics, the new Zuk Edge smartphone bears a 13-megapixel rear camera with a 1.34-micron pixel Samsung ISOCELL sensor, an f/2.2 aperture, PDAF+CAF hybrid autofocus, and a high-brightness flash. On the front, it bears an 8-megapixel camera with a 1.12-micron pixel sensor and an f/2.2 aperture.
Battery: The ZUK Edge is backed by a 3,100mAh battery with Fast Charge support via its USB Type-C port.
Connectivity Features of Lenovo ZUK Edge:
Connectivity options onboard the ZUK Edge include 4G LTE (with support for Indian LTE bands), Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth v4.1, and GPS/ A-GPS.
Other Features of Lenovo ZUK Edge:
- The ZUK Edge also has a built-in blood oxygen heart-rate sensor, a pneumatic altimeter and a UV light sensor.
- It’s also packing a fingerprint sensor up front.
- The Zuk Edge measures 142.9×74.5×7.68mm and weighs 160 grammes.

The price of Lenovo ZUK Edge and Its availability outside China:
The Zuk Edge sells for CNY 2,299 (around US$330) for the 4GB RAM model, and CNY 2,499 (around US360) for the 6GB RAM model, according to Slash Gear.
There’s no word yet on whether it will be available in the United States. However, if there’s a demand for it, Lenovo might make it available for import somehow like what Xiaomi did for the Mi Mix. And in case if that didn’t look happening then the users can wait for Samsung’s Galaxy S8, which is rumoured to come with the same display design and the under-the-glass fingerprint sensor.
