Lenovo’s Zuk brand is set to launch its fourth handset called Zuk Edge. Zuk CEO Chang Cheng has confirmed the smartphone will be unveiled next week. Cheng took to Weibo to make the announcement and official renders of Zuk Edge. The picture reveals the Edge in black colour variant. Both front and back of the device can be seen in the picture along with its packaging box.

Lenovo Zuk Edge was spotted on Weibo earlier as well. The pictures, which were picked up by Android pure, reveal an ultra-thin upper bezel on this phone. However, it won’t have a bezel-less display like the Mi Mix. The smartphone appeared on China’s certification website TENAA a few days ago. According to leaks, the phone comes with a 5.5-inch LCD display with 1080p resolution. The Zuk edge is said to be powered by a 2.35 GHz Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB RAM and 32/64GB of storage.

Lenovo Zuk Edge will run Android Marshmallow and feature 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.

A separate report on MyDrivers claim 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.
