Smartphones with curved displays became a thing thanks to Samsung, more or less. The company had introduced the Galaxy Note Edge back in 2014, and even though that smartphone wasn’t all that popular, it sported a curved display on one side, and basically gave Samsung a green light to release the Galaxy S6 Edge in 2015, due to positive reactions to the Galaxy Note Edge. The Galaxy S6 Edge was immensely successful, and so was its successor, the Galaxy S7 Edge. Now, in addition to Samsung, a couple of more companies introduced devices with a curved display this year, including Vivo, Xiaomi, Huawei and Elephone.
Having that in mind, it seems like yet another company is getting ready to release a smartphone with a curved display, ZUK. ZUK is a company backed by Lenovo which had released only a couple of devices thus far, the ZUK Z2 Pro is the company’s current flagship, but it seems like that won’t be the case for long. The ZUK Edge just got certified by TENAA (China’s equivalent to the FCC) in China, and this is essentially ZUK’s most powerful device thus far, in addition to high-end specs, it also sports a curved display, as you can see in the images down below. The ZUK Edge will be made out of metal and glass it seems, though we’ll have to wait for the company to introduce this smartphone in order to be sure.
The ZUK Edge features a 5.5-inch fullHD (1920 x 1080) LCD display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB / 64GB of native storage. The device is fueled by the Snapdragon 821 64-bit quad-core SoC clocked at 2.35GHz, along with the Adreno 530 GPU. On the back of this phone, you’ll find a 13-megapixel shooter, while an 8-megapixel snapper can be found on the front side of this smartphone. The 3,000mAh battery is also a part of this package, and Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow comes pre-installed on this smartphone with some software additions from ZUK. The device measures 142.9 x 74.5 x 7.68mm, while it weighs 160 grams. We still do not know when will ZUK announce this phone, but judging it got certified by TENAA, that could happen really soon.
