Lenovo has officially launched the “ZUK Edge” with slim bezels powered by Snapdragon 821 chip, Adreno 530 GPU and uses 4GB and 6GB RAM respectively for the two variants and 64GB of UFS 2.0 internal storage.
Lenovo ZUK Edge features 5.5″ display size covered with a 2.5D curved glass. The fingerprint scanner is placed just beneath the display which can unlock the device in just 0.09 seconds according to the company.
In the camera department, the device packs 13MP rear camera with phase detection autofocus f/2.2 aperture and 1.34μm pixel size. Interestingly, below the LED flash, there is also a heart rate sensor.
In terms of design, the ZUK Edge measures 142.9 x 74.5 x 7.68mm and weighs 160 grams. The phone brings along better HiFi audio with the help of strong audiophile aspirations with a Dirac HD Sound. It also uses 3.5mm audio jack.
For the available connectivity options, there’s 4G VoLTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.1 LE as well as USB Type-C.
Meanwhile the battery is just 3,100mAh and it supports Quick Charge 3.0. But i think it’s not so impressive because the processors are very large 2X2.35 means double capable but we cannot use within 6 hours in 4g online and RAM also if 6 gb of ram at least battery should have been minimum of 4000+ to make it really cool.
Anyway, Lenovo ZUK Edge will be priced at $330 for the 4GB RAM version and $360 for the 6GB RAM version which is scheduled to hit the market on January 1, 2017. The available colors are Ceramic White and Titanium Black.
