Lenovo unveils ZUK Edge flagship, with Snapdragon 821, up to 6GB RAM, and slim bezels

We've been expecting it for a while, but Lenovo has finally unveiled the ZUK Edge, a new flagship-class handset offered at a surprisingly low price.

Despite the name, the ZUK Edge doesn't have the same kind of dual-curved display that has featured on some other high-end handsets like the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge and BlackBerry Priv. However, it does have slimmer bezels than most smartphones, with an 86.4% screen-to-body ratio.

The Edge is also pretty thin for a device of its size. It's just 7.68mm thick, and weighs 160g, despite being packed full of plenty of premium hardware, including an under-glass fingerprint scanner, heart rate sensor, UV sensor and altimeter.

The handset's key specs include:

  • 5.5-inch display with Full HD (1920x1080px) resolution and 2.5D Corning Gorilla Glass
  • Quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor
  • 4GB or 6GB LPDDR4 RAM
  • 64GB storage
  • 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture, high-intensity flash, HDR support and 960fps slow-motion video
  • 8-megapixel front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture
  • 4G LTE support
  • 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth 4.1 LE
  • USB 3.1 port with Type-C connector
  • 3100mAh battery
  • 142.9 x 74.5 x 7.68mm; 160g

The ZUK Edge will be available in Ceramic White or Titanium Crystal Black, priced at 2,299 CNY (around $330 USD) for the model with 4GB RAM, and 2,499 CNY ($360 USD) with 6GB. The device will launch in China on January 1, but the company hasn't yet announced plans to make it available elsewhere. However, some ZUK devices have been sold in other markets, so there's always hope.
