Lenovo Zuk Edge will be unveiled in China next week. Zuk CEO Chang Cheng, who confirmed the launch in a Weibo post, also posted official renders of the device in black colour variant. Now, a new set of images leaked on Weibo reveal the Zuk Edge in white colour option. And as opposed to earlier rumours, the Zuk Edge will not feature a curved display. However, Lenovo Zuk Edge has extremely thin bezels on the sides.

Lenovo Zuk Edge can be seen sporting a glass back, similar to LG X Screen. There’s circular camera lens at back with laser focus and dual LED flash placed one below another. There’s no fingerprint sensor at the back, suggesting it could be integrated in the home button. At the bottom is USB Type-C port, 3.5 mm headphone jack as well as speaker grill. Antenna lines are clearly visible on top of the device. Lenovo Zuk Edge has a capsule-like home button, very similar to the one present on Oppo F1s.

Lenovo Zuk Edge 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.

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. 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.
