Lenovo has just announced the cheapest phone “ZUK Edge” which comes with a Snapdragon 821, even cheaper than the OnePlus 3T.
The other hot feature of this smartphone is the nearly bezel-less display which comes with a 5.5-inch full HD display with a 2.5D curved glass on top. Lenovo claims the display offers a contrast ratio of 1500:1 and 85 percent NTSC color gamut. The front also houses a home button which doubles up as a fingerprint sensor.
The Chipset is a Qualcomm MSM8996 Snapdragon 821 with Quad – Core CPU and Adreno 530 for gaming and other purposes.
On the camera front, Lenovo ZUK Edge sports a 13MP main camera with phase detection autofocus, f/2.2 aperture, and 1.34-micron pixel size. It is not clear whether the sensor is optically stabilized but there is LED flash and a heart sensor tucked next to the camera. As far as selfies are concerned, there is an 8MP camera at the front.
Lenovo ZUK Edge measures 7.68mm at its thickest point and weighs around 160 grams. The smartphone comes with 3.5mm audio jack and supports Dirac HD sound for Hi-Fi audio. Lenovo ZUK Edge supports 4G VoLTE, dual-band WiFi, Bluetooth 4.1 and USB Type-C port.
