ZUK managed to release one of the cheapest Snapdragon 820 smartphones in the market today with the price of the ZUK Z2 going as low as 1499 Yuan ($219). While the company is known to make affordable flagship phones, it does have some powerful handsets in its lineup like the ZUK Z2 Pro with 6GB of RAM. Now, it looks like Lenovo’s ZUK brand is preparing to release another smartphone called the ZUK Edge.
Chang Cheng, the head of ZUK, recently revealed a new image which reveals the name ZUK Edge. This basically confirms the existence of the device, but he failed to reveal more details such as a release date. Since there are two colors shown in the image, it is likely that the ZUK Edge comes in black and white color options.
The timing of this image is interesting given that we found a new ZUK smartphone pass through TENAA a few days back. However, the ZUK Z2151 model, certified on the website doesn’t seem to feature a curved display. So, if this is the ZUK Edge, why is it called the ‘Edge’? Either this could be a different smartphone or there are some who say that the screen proportion of the model will be very high, justifying its Edge name tag.
TENAA revealed that the ZUK Edge will come with Snapdragon 821 chipset inside with 4GB RAM and 32GB / 64GB ROM options. There will be a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 13MP rear camera, and an 8MP front shooter.
As you can see, while these specs are pretty good, it still lags behind some flagships in the market like the OnePlus 3T, Google Pixel XL, and Mi 5S Plus. At this point, we can’t be sure that the model that passed through TENAA is indeed the ZUK Edge, so we better wait for more details.
