As expected, the new flagship ZUK Edge from Lenovo has been presented today. From the title it is clear that it has frameless screen, which occupies 86.4% of the front surface. I do not know whether the manufactuter have seen Nubia Z11, for the right to fully frameless I would not call ZUK Edge.
I suggest at the very beginning to run through specifications, in order to further continue the conversation more detail.
ZUK Edge: Full specifications

Thus, the main feature of new items in a large, 5.5-inch display. It is reported that the width of the side cover only 1.63 mm. Well, they were quite so narrow, so there is every reason to believe that in the life of the smartphone will look spectacular.
ZUK Edge: Performance
In terms of performance is clear. Before us is the most powerful to date chipset from the Android camp. As such it will remain until the end of February, when it shows Samsung Galaxy S8 with Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 on board.
We’ve got a truly royal collection of all sorts of different sensors. Because there is an unusual heart rate (now many manufacturers forget about it) and altimeter. Thus, ZUK Edge can measure not only the distance, but also to calculate the calories burned in view of lifting the mountain and it’s cool.
ZUK Edge: Camera
In terms of the camera is more or less standard for a flagship device. There is support for the AF PDAF and CAF (about 0.1 second speed), and in addition, stated the electronic image stabilization.
The most important advantage is the ability to record camera Slow Motion video at 960 frames per second. This parameter ZUK has long been ahead of all its competitors, but the quality of these movies say the least not for public viewing. Perhaps with the release of Edge everything will change?
The only thing that confused – it’s battery capacity. Yes, the more important as there optimized power consumption, but the battery would be to try to fit more serious. Apparently, once the amount decided in favor of the hack to death a thin shell (7.7 mm).
ZUK Edge: Features
Supports fast charging with current parameters 5,3V and 2.5A.
In stock we have two colors: black and completely white with gold accents. Both minimalist and stylish look. Let’s see what colors will play a novelty in real life, rather than the official rendering.
ZUK Edge: price and release date
Home sales ZUK Edge is planned for 1 January of the year approaching. Of course, it is important for China. Other markets then ever. The price tag is quite humane:
- 2299 yuan, or $ 330 for the version with 4 memory + 64GB
- 2499 yuan ($ 360) for the modification of a 6 + 64 GB
There is a special modification of autographed some guy. It stands as the top model and offers the minimum memory.
Since the buy ZUK Edge directly to all of us is difficult, almost impossible, we should expect the price tags on the online stores at 380 – US $ 420 for a particular configuration. And anyway, it looks more than worthy proposal.
