Zuk has finally confirmed that the much-anticipated Edge smartphone will be launching on Tuesday – December 20. The company shared a teaser on Weibo showing the upcoming Zuk Edge partially with an interface layout that seemed focused for the Chinese market. To recall, the company was expected to launch the Zuk Edge last week – but that did not happen.
Looking at the teaser image, the Zuk Edge seems to sport an edge-to-edge display and it may be placed like the Xiaomi’s Mi MIX smartphone. The image was shared by Android Pure.
Based on preliminary leaks, the Zuk Edge may feature a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080×1920 pixels) display, and will be powered by a 2.35GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with 4GB of RAM (or 6GB of RAM). The Zuk Edge smartphone is likely to pack 32GB and 64GB inbuilt storage options, and have the fingerprint scanner as well (presumably under the Home Button at the bottom of the display).
On the camera front, the Zuk Edge smartphone is rumoured to sport a 13-megapixel rear camera and an 8-megapixel camera at the front. Zuk Edge is said to run Android 6.0 Marshmallow with ZUI 2.0 skin, and is expected to pack a 3000mAh battery. An earlier report tipped that the Zuk Edge may be priced at CNY 2,699 (roughly Rs. 26,800).
The Zuk Edge will be Lenovo’s fourth Zuk-branded smartphone. To recall, Lenovo has so far launched the Zuk Z1 (launched in August last year), Zuk Z2 Pro (launched in April this year), and Zuk Z2 (launched in May this year).
In separate news, a White-coloured smartphone believed to be the Zuk Edge has been spotted in live images. The smartphone packs slim bezels around the display and also sport a home button placed right below the display.
