Lenovo officially outed its latest Zuk smartphone today. The new Lenovo Zuk Edge runs Snapdragon 821 processor with 6GB of RAM, runs Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box and is different from the rest of Edge branded phones. It does not feature a curved edge screen but instead brings more touchscreen display on the front and it is a mobile device with a front fingerprint mounted on the Home button.
. The touchscreen display makes 86.4% of the front-facing glass.
Zuk Edge comes sporting a similar design to the Xiaomi Mi Mix with a lower screen-to-body ratio and a physical Home button on the bottom. The Super AMOLED touchscreen display measures 5.5-inch in size and features a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. In the terms of memory, Lenovo has brought a simple version of the phone, the Snapdragon 821 powered with 6GB of RAM, 64GB of flash storage and Android 7.0 Nougat. No 4GB of RAM version here.
Lenovo’s Zuk Edge houses a 13MP Samsung-made PDAF main camera on the rear with Optical Image Stabilization, Electronic Image Stabilization and LED flash and an 8MP selfie camera on the front. Both cameras must at least support video recording at 1080p.
Connectivity supports are highlighted by the support of two SIM cards, 4G LTE network, 3G network, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, USB Type-C and a fingerprint sensor located on the Home button. It gets powered by a built-in 3,100 mAh battery and is priced to sell for $399.99.
Lenovo is clearly not making history with the new Zuk Edge phone, the only attractive features coming with the phone are Snapdragon 821 SoC and 6GB of RAM, the rest of features can be found in the most of sub $300 Chinese phones.
