Even though we are less than 2 weeks away from 2017, it doesn’t stop Lenovo’s subsidiary ZUK from launching yet another new product in its native market of China. That being said, the new smartphone – called ZUK Edge – is technically a 2017 product since it will only be released on 1 January 2017.
Powered by a 2.35GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, ZUK Edge is without a doubt a flagship smartphone. Furthermore, the design of the phone which allows 86.4% of its front area to be covered by a 5.5-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) display further strengthen its flagship image.
In addition to that, Edge also has a rather unique fingerprint reader whereby it is still able to do its job in 0.09 seconds even though it is positioned under the phone’s screen cover. Equipped with 64GB UFS 2.0-based internal storage as standard, the Edge is available with two memory configurations: 4GB and 6GB, with both of them being LPDDR4-1866 dual channel RAM modules.
Photography-wise, Edge’s rear camera setup is consisted of a 1.34um 13-megapixels Samsung ISOCELL sensor with PDAF + CAF focus mode, f/2.2 5-element lens, and high brightness flash. On the front, there is also an 8-megapixels f/2.2 camera.
To complete Edge’s hardware package, the phone also comes with a heart rate sensor, USB 3.1 Type-C port, and 3,100mAh battery that supports Quick Charge 3.0 technology. While it is known whether the phone will make it outside of China at the moment, the new ZUK Edge with 4GB RAM is priced at CNY 2,299 (about RM 1,482) while the 6GB variant is listed at CNY 2,499 (about RM 1,611).
