Lenovo ZUK Edge leaks, launch soon


ZUK Edge

ZUK is a Lenovo’s sub-brand specialized in high cost-effective devices, the ZUK Z2 is an obvious example of that. The smartphone came with a Snapdragon 820 and a sub-$250 price tag, an amazing value for money at the time (and probably still). With this in mind, we are really excited to see a ZUK Edge possibly coming out very soon.

The launch of the smartphone has been somewhat confirmed by a photo shared by ZUK’s CEO himself — Chang Cheng — on Chinese social media.

The image shows the logo “ZUK Edge” on a sheet of paper and it probably hints at two different variants of the smartphone to be in production, a black and a white one.

Also the name itself gives us an idea of what we can expect; even though the TENAA image is not that clear, the “Edge” moniker suggest a dual curved display, just like on the Xiaomi Mi Note 2. That would be a really exciting addition if they keep prices low as they’ve done in the past.

ZUK Edge Specifications

ZUK Edge

From a TENAA certificate appeared online a few days back we also the specs of the next ZUK’s flagship.

The ZUK Edge will feature a 5.5-inch Full HD screen and it’ll be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 clocked at 2.35Ghz and Adreno 530 GPU.  The smartphone will sport 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage (non expandable, most likely).

The ZUK Edge should pack a 3000mAh capacity battery, weigh 160 grams and run Android 6.0 Marshmallow OTB. Camera wise it’ll rock a 13.0MP rear shooter with LED flash and an 8.0MP front-facing camera.

We still aren’t aware of a release date but we can expect it to get launched in China by the end of the year and early 2017 for the rest of the world.

    If it has the same lackluster camera as the Zuk 2 had, I’ll pass.
    Even Leeco phones have better cameras at that price point.

      Do You want me to share some real photo samples of Zuk Z2? Then You will not say it is bad. I really like Techsites that say Zuk Z2 camera is not good enough. Then I go out and make beautiful, clear and sharp, colorful pictures. I think when the phone was released with ZUI 1.8, the camera algorythm was not good. But now we have ZUI 2.3 and everything works much better. Even more cleaned roms are available for the phone.

      Anyway S821 is not that much better then the S820 to buy new phone. S830 will be a big blast maybe. And Zuk Z2 has 4/64GB also with a 5″ IPS screen 6 hours Screen On time and 2 days availability. This (yet another) Edge device will have a bigger screen (5,5″) and 500mAh smaller battery (3000mAh)? HAHAHAHA Congratulations for Lenovo… Flagship phones of 2016 has 6/128GB and AMOLED screen, and many innovations. Only Lenovo and Xiaomi cant hold the line.

        I have had the phone for a test. Camera in good lightning conditions is good, but as soon as there is a little less light it falls apart.
        I`m not saying it’s bad, for that price it’s more than OK.
        I would rather have had SD650 and a better CAM, than SD820 and this cam.
