Lenovo’s Zuk brand could soon see the launch of its fourth handset with ‘Zuk Edge’ spotted online in leaked images. While Zuk Edge doesn’t have a curved display as was being rumoured, the new photos spotted on China’s Weibo were picked up by Android pure. They reveal an ultra-thin upper bezel on this phone, although it won’t have a bezel-less display like the Mi Mix.
Lenovo Zuk Edge was spotted on China’s certification website TENAA last week. According to leaks, the phone comes with a 5.5-inch LCD display with 1080p resolution. The Zuk edge is powered by a 2.35 GHz Snapdragon 821 processor, coupled with 4GB RAM and 32/64GB of storage.
Lenovo Zuk Edge is running on Android Marshmallow and features a 13MP rear camera (capable of 4K video recording) along with an 8MP front shooter. It is backed by a 3,000 mAh battery, weighs 160 grams and will come in Black and White colour variants. The phone supports 4G LTE, NFC, Wi-Fi and GPS. Zuk Edge is expected to launch in China by the end of this year, with global sales expected to begin in early 2017.
Another report on MyDrivers claims there will be a 6GB RAM version as well. The last Zuk phone that Lenovo launched was the Zuk Z2 in June. Priced at 1,799 Yuan (approx Rs 18,400), Zuk Z2 features a 5-inch FHD display and is powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor. It comes with 4GB RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. The phone sports a 13MP primary camera and an 8MP selfie shooter.
In India the Zuk Z2 was launched as simply the Z2 Plus at a price of Rs 17,999 for the 32GB storage version and Rs 19,999 for the 64GB version of the phone. The Z2 Plus is one of the cheapest phones in the market right now with the Snapdragon 820 processor.
