Lenovo's ZUK Edge has been caught in the wild: bezels, begone!
Alright, so we recently started hearing about an upcoming ZUK Edge smartphone. Quick cheat-sheet — ZUK is a sub-brand of Lenovo that operates in the Eastern markets. Thankfully, the phone is not riding the "curved display" bandwagon and ripping off the Edge name for that reason. Instead, it's expected to be a nearly-bezel-less slab of a smartphone, much like the Xiaomi Mi Mix. Well, with the small exception that the ZUK Edge is still going to have a bit of a top bezel, probably for an earpiece and selfie cam position.

The rumored phone is no slouch in the specs department as well — a TENAA (regulatory agency) listing has revealed some cutting-edge specs, such as a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC, 4 GB of RAM, and 32 or 64 GB of storage; and a leaked screenshot even showed us a variant with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory.

Well, now, we have a few photos of it, caught in the wild! Well, allegedly — leaks are still leaks, but then again, there are not that many phones that look like this. From the photos, we can see how the phone's "forehead" really does house an earpiece and a camera, while its "chin" is home to a physical home button, large enough to house a fingerprint scanner, we'd say.

The shots are, of course, with potato-grade quality, but the device still looks pretty impressive with its screen lit — those thin bezels sure look futuristic, don't they? Now, whether this phone will be available in Western markets is not very likely, but hey... Lenovo could possibly transfer the technology to one of its *other* sub-brands in the future. One can dream, right?
