Has been giving that talk about quite some time and finally it is official. ZUK, the subsidiary of Lenovo, welcomes you to its catalog to the new Edge ZUK, a terminal that due to its name seemed to be focused on the integration of a curved screen but finally It points to the trend “without frames”, growing in popularity following the release of the Mix my Xiaomi.
But in addition to a design in which the screen is the protagonist, ZUK Edge is not short on specifications. ZUK again opting to integrate components very pointers without giving up the prices to which we are accustomed. We see all the innovations that brings the new Edge ZUK.
No frames? As you look at it…
Although it was not the first, Mix my Xiaomi has marked a new way in design with its screen frameless and ZUK has wanted to follow the same path with the new Edge ZUK
ZUK Edge has a 5.5 inch FullHD screen that occupies the 86.4% of the front surface according to the data offered by Lenovo in its official website. However, if we do the calculation with reference to the dimensions of the phone, in reality the body/screen ratio is 78.28%.
Is still a very high figure, but not reached the level that we want to sell the brand. However, images are fine side frames, are the top and bottom frames which subtracted protagonism to the panel.
Speaking of the bottom frame, Lenovo has left a space to integrate the classic fingerprint reader. But also in this case ensure that you will allow unlock your phone in just 0.9 seconds.
In the top frame is the front 8-megapixel camera, while the main Chamber rises to 13 megapixels and bet by the ISOCELL Samsung technology. It also has hybrid approach combining phase and contrast detection.
ZUK Edge, technical specifications
ZUK again rely on Silicon from Qualcomm to give life to its latest smartphone. Specifically mounted 821 Snapdragon chip, accompanied by the 530 Adreno GPU and Two RAM configurations, a choice of 4 or 6 GB. For internal memory 64 GB in both cases they have chosen and it does not have a MicroSD slot to expand the capacity.
ZUK Edge integrates interface ZUI 2.5, the visual layer of the brand that we saw in our analysis of the Z2 ZUK which It gives enough problems if used outside of China -We hope to they have fixed them in this version – and has a design that is far removed from what would be stock Android.
