Lenovo might release a new ZUK phone later this year. It will be called the ZUK Edge but apparently won't be based on a curved screen design similar to the Galaxy S7 edge. Instead, it will have a traditional flat display with small but visible borders around the screen.

The ZUK Edge already leaked on Chinese regulatory agency TENAA a while ago, so we already know most of its alleged specs. It will be based upon a 5.5 inch LCD display featuring Full-HD resolution and a Snapdragon 821 processor with 4 GB of RAM and 32 or 64 GB of storage. Most likely there will not be a Micro-SD slot for memory expansion. There will be a 13 megapixel camera on the back that will be able to record 4K video. ZUK added a 8 megapixel lens to the front of the device. the 7.58 mm thick metal case will host a 3,000 mAh battery. 

A few days ago, Chang Cheng, CEO of ZUK, affirmed the existence of the ZUK Edge by posting pictures of the packaging in both white and black colors on Weibo. Since then, a couple of leaks gave us pictures of the phone that confirm, that the ZUK Edge will in fact not feature a curved "edge-design". Instead it will feature small but visible borders around the screen even though the top and bottom are thinner than on previous ZUK phones. So far we do not know how a new ZUK phone will fit into Lenovo's alleged Moto-only-strategy, that was recently confirmed by the CEO of Lenovo, but maybe the ZUK Edge will be the last ZUK phone to be released under that brand.

As a former projectionist still used to working with 35 mm film and experience in computer assembling and overclocking, I was drawn to the professional IT crowd a couple of years back and started working in IT support, Windows administration and project management before discovering my love for traveling the world. Now I am working as a news editor from all parts of the world, mostly writing about gadgets and mobile gear for Notebookcheck.
