Lenovo’s sub-brand ZUK is in the limelight from the past few weeks due to its upcoming smartphone with a curved screen: the ZUK Edge. The smartphone is believed to be the first bezel-less smartphone from the company, something that can compete with with futuristic Mi Mix. The company’s CEO revealed the promotional images of the smartphone a few days back, and had stated that it might start selling from the 7th of December in China, but no further confirmation regarding the official launch was specified. Now, ZUK Edge images have surfaced online, which give us a definite look of the smartphone’s design.

ZUK Edge Specifications
The latest images of the ZUK Edge give a clear insight as to what the device looks like in flesh. As opposed to the rumours, we can clearly see that it is not completely bezel-less nor is its design similar to the Mi Mix. However, the smartphone is expected to come feature a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 4GB of RAM, and it will be powered by the 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor. There might be a higher end variant of the phone featuring 6GB of RAM, which was confirmed by AnTuTu listing a few days back. The smartphone will run Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box with ZUI on top of it.
It’s a shame that companies are still failing to release smartphones running Android 7.0 Nougat. In the camera department, the ZUK Edge will come with 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. It will have 4G LTE connectivity, and will come packed with a 3000mAh battery. The ZUK Ege has already been listed on JD.com, but no details regarding the official confirmation has been released by the company. A new entry-level smartphone from the company – ZUK R1 – is rumoured to be in the pipeline, and its images surfaced online a few days back.
