ZUK Edge announced: 86.4% screen-to-body ratio, SD821, 6GB RAM


ZUK Edge specifications

ZUK have announced their newest — the much awaited ZUK Edge. The phone doesn’t quite throw the Mi Mix out of the water, but it does feature some seriously slim bezels. Let’s have a look at that and the full ZUK Edge specifications.

ZUK Edge Specifications

The ZUK Edge, announced on the 20th of December in China features the following.

  • Display: 5.5-inch 1920 x 1080p FHD display with 2.5D glass
  • Processor: Snapdragon 821
  • RAM: 4GB/6GB
  • ROM: 32GB/64GB
  • Cameras: 12 mega-pixel ISOCELL rear, 8 mega-pixel front
  • Battery: 3100mAh
  • Other: Fingerprint sensor, U-Touch home button

Besides, the highlight of the phone in the narrow (or lack of) bezels. The ZUK Edge features an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 86.4%!

Pricing and availability

The ZUK Edge has been competitively priced at 2299 yuan or roughly $330 for the 4GB/32GB variant and 2499 yuan or $360 for the 6GB/64GB version. This makes the ZUK Edge one of the more affordable Snapdragon 821 phones out there, cheaper than the OnePlus 3T by ~$30.

The ZUK Edge will make its way into the Chinese market early January 2017. There’s no word yet on whether the phone will be entering other markets, but given that ZUK sell their phones in India (via parent company Lenovo), the Edge could be something that goes on offer in the country.

      Reading around it appears as there are no NFC, Irda or FM radio. Will keep you updated if there are more info.

    Great looking phone. I tried the first Zuk, the Z1 but found it’s 5.5 inch size a bit big for me, loved the 5 inch Zuk 2 though. I’m hoping Lenovo will come out with a 5 inch version of their new Edge phone.

    LOL the second photo with no visible side bezel is clearly Photoslopped. When will they ever learn? Other than that, it seems like a nice phone.

    Better not to reproduce lies. Body to screen ratio is 78% a far cry from the stated one. While interesting, it’s not very impressive, it already loses to most sharp phones Mimix … the late Note 7.

    Admirable effort from Lenovo but not exactly top notch, Z2 Pro looked more impressive for its time.

      Also considering that 64GB on the “top” model is just not worthy 2017. I feel that with GB RAM you should at least go for 128GB or even 256GB on a fast connection to the SoC. Anything else is saving at the wrong end. Especially since these phones then can do without an SD Slot which makes design easier….

    I think the EDGE word needs to be redifined for smartphones, to many EDGEs that are not really EDGy… but it looks nice though

    Seems kind of inferior to say a OP3/OP3T for the same kind of price. Personally would of liked capacitive keys, larger battery and NFC, and possibly a 2K screen for the asking price.

    And yes the body to screen ratio claimed as well as the “hidden fingerprint” scanner all seem to be wishful marketing speak…. Aka Lies!

      I would have liked bigger battery too I was waiting for this phone really.
