ZUK CEO Chang Chen has released an official teaser for the company’s next flagship smartphone, which confirms that the ‘Edge’ will be made official tomorrow. A second teaser image was also spotted online today, showing the handset in Black.
The ZUK Edge, like most other recent flagship Android smartphones, will be powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core SoC under the hood. The chipset comes clocked at 2.35 GHz for slightly higher performance compared to the Snapdragon 820 chipset, and also features a higher-clocked Adreno 530 GPU to power the graphics.
The flagship smartphone will feature a 5.5-inch display with 1080 x 1920 Full HD resolution and 2.5D curved glass on top. No dual-curved edge display though, despite the “Edge” moniker. In fact, early rumors had suggested that the ZUK Edge will indeed sport a dual-curved Edge AMOLED display.
In the memory department, the ZUK flagship will be equipped with 4GB of LPDDR4 RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. However, there is a possibility of a higher end variant with 6GB of RAM as well, as hinted by an AnTuTu benchmark listing recently. On the imaging front, the smartphone is equipped with a 13MP camera at the back and an 8MP camera on the front. The ZUK Edge will also pack a 3000mAh capacity battery, all the latest connectivity features, and a fingerprint scanner embedded inside the home button on the front. On the software side of things, the smartphone is expected to run on the latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS out of the box.
