Chinese company Lenovo has officially launched its much anticipated ZUK Edge smartphone today. The Lenovo ZUK Edge was launched via an online conference and even though the company didn’t roll out the drums to herald the launch of another sleek flagship, the ZUK Edge’s specs lineup and spectacular design speaks volume about the smartphone.
The ZUK Edge adopts its own design as it looks nothing like the Xiaomi Mi Mix, the screen-to-body ratio isn’t as high as was found on the Mi Mix as the Edge comes with a physical home button and other features which differentiate both high-end smartphones. The display only accounts for 86.4% of the entire screen, according to the official statement and that is amazing. The device also has a dimension of 142.9 x 74.5 x 7.68 mm.
There is a front home button under which is embedded the fingerprint scanner aboard the ZUK Edge. It is Lenovo’s first smartphone to use an underglass fingerprint sensor. Just as we saw in leaks, the ZUK Edge comes in black and white color variants only and of the two, the black color has a more rugged, and sophisticated look. Both variants adopt an all-metal body build with 2.5D glass on top. The screen is a flat one despite the device being called the ZUK Edge.
