Lenovo-backed ZUK is going to be introducing its next flagship Android smartphone at a media even sometime next week. This was revealed today by the company’s CEO Chang Cheng in a post made on Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The post included an image as well, showing the handset along with its retail packaging and accessories.
The upcoming flagship has already been certified by TENAA in China, so we do have a fairly good idea of what to expect hardware-wise. The smartphone will sport a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution and is going to run on Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 821 flagship 64-bit quad-core SoC clocked at 2.35 GHz. Two memory variants will be on offer at launch – 4GB RAM + 32GB ROM & 6GB RAM + 64GB ROM.
ZUK Edge isn’t expected to be a stunner in the camera department, with a 13MP rear camera and an 8MP front-facing camera. In the connectivity department, the smartphone will offer support for Wi-Fi 802.11 ac dual-band, 4G LTE with VoLTE, and a USB Type-C port. A 3000mAh battery will power the smartphone, with support for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 standard. On the software front, the ZUK Edge will run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, with the ZUI custom UI layer on top. Based on the TENAA listing, it appears the handset will be available in Black and White colors at launch.
