If you remember Lenovo’s sub-brand ZUK announced the ZUK Edge in China back in December. It has just been a couple of months and it seems that a successor to the smartphone is already in place, well atleast a special edition.
A few alleged images of the ZUK Edge II including a special edition dedicated to Luo Tianyi, a Vocaloid character popular in China, have emerged. As you can see the special edition comes in a distinctive blue shade while the regular Edge II could be offered in black. Also, this model actually has a curved display unlike the ZUK Edge which had a flat panel.
Underneath the display we don’t see any physical button but a faint LED light. At the back there are dual cameras arranged in a vertical layout, again something new for ZUK. There are no specifications or any other details about the handset and considering the ZUK Edge launched just two months back, we are a bit skeptical about this one.
The ZUK Edge came with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 quad-core SoC clocked at 2.35GHz. There are two RAM variants 4GB and 6GB with 64GB of storage along with a microSD expansion slot. At the back there is a 13MP rear camera with a 1.34-micron pixel Samsung ISOCELL Sensor, an f/2.2 aperture, PDAF+CAF hybrid autofocus, and a high-brightness flash.
There is an 8MP camera on the front with a 1.12-micron pixel sensor, and an f/2.2 aperture. It features a USB Type-C (v3.1) port and a unique under-glass U Touch fingerprint sensor that is said to unlock the phone under 0.09 seconds). It also packs in some unique features like a built-in blood oxygen heart rate sensor, a pneumatic altimeter and a UV light sensor. The smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat with ZUI 2.5 on top. Connectivity options dual-SIM slots, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS/ A-GPS. On the battery front, you get a 3,100mAh unit with Quick Charge 3.0 support.
