Curved display smartphones have managed to become really popular over the last couple of years. Samsung more or less started this trend with their Galaxy Note Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge smartphones, and we’ve seen quite a few smartphones with a curved display this year, the Galaxy S7 Edge, Vivo Xplay5, Vivo Xplay6, Xiaomi Mi Note 2, Huawei Mate 9 Pro, Porsche Design Mate 9 and the Elephone S7. Now, it seems like yet another device will board the curved display train, the Lenovo ZUK Edge.
This smartphone was recently certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC), which more or less revealed both its specs and design. Since then, the company’s CEO shared retail packaging of the ZUK Edge, and now we have some new leaks to share with you. If you take a look at the gallery down below, you’ll be able to see three new images of the ZUK Edge. This is the white variant of the device that was teased by the company’s CEO, and it seems like the phone will ship with a home button below its display. The upper and lower bezels are not that thick on the device, and even though its curved display is not exactly best represented in these images, it will be curved on the sides, though we still can’t say if it’s a small curve, or something along the lines of what we’ve seen on the Galaxy S7 Edge. You can see that the ZUK Edge still sports some bezel on the sides, though not too much, luckily. Both its power / lock and volume rocker physical keys are located on its right side, and the phone looks really nice in these images, though we’re still waiting to see some cleaner shots of the phone.
The ZUK Edge will sport a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) display, along with 4GB / 6GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of native storage. The phone comes with the Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core SoC, along with the Adreno 530 GPU, at least according to TENAA. The 13-megapixel shooter is placed on the back of the ZUK Edge, and an 8-megapixel snapper can be found on its front side. The home button below the display will double as a fingerprint scanner, and a 3,000mAh battery (+Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0) will be available on the inside. This handset will sport two SIM card slots, and a heart rate sensor it seems. The phone will launch in Black and White color variants, and it will be announced either later this month or in December.
