The ZUK Edge might be one of the cheapest Snapdragon 821-powered phones at $390
With phone releases nowadays, not much is kept secret anymore. Specs, images, and prices are leaked so frequently that it's hard to be surprised by the launch of a new device anymore. The Lenovo ZUK Edge is a phone that we've been hearing quite a bit about over the past few days, and although we've learned pretty much all there is to know about the phone, it's shaping up to be a pretty incredible budget offering.

One of the biggest draws for the ZUK Edge is expected to be its near bezel-less display. Similar to that of the Xiaomi Mi Mix, the ZUK Edge showcased it's extremely thin bezels in a few leaked photos that surfaced back in late November, and in addition to the phone's wonderful lack of bezels, the specs it's packing inside are also shaping up to be quite promising. The ZUK Edge is expected to ship with the Snapdragon 821 CPU, 4 or 6GB or RAM, and 32, 64, or 128GB of internal storage.

Today, an official press render leaked for the handset, and it shows off the phone in an eye-catching white/gold color variant. This render also reinforces the near bezel-less design of the ZUK Edge. On top of the new press render, a number for the phone's price has also popped up. If this report turns out to be true, the ZUK Edge will feature a price tag of just CNY 2,699. That equates to around $390 USD, and this would make the ZUK Edge one of the cheapest phones running the Snapdragon 821 chipset.

It's been confirmed that the phone will launch sometime next week, and although a release in Western markets is highly unlikely, our readers over in the East sure do have a pretty incredible handset to look forward to.

Why wait, you can get Le Pro 3 now for $299. Better than OP3T or mi5S+

the user interface and software optimization is way behind OP3T, hence the discounted price due to low demand.

Got my pro 3 for $249 and loving it. My only negative are the speakers. They just aint loud enough.

Did you enable Dolby Atmos? It will make a huge difference.

What are you basing your opinion on? As a le pro 3 owner, no they aren't. Screen is fine and battery life is actually very good.

Terrible? Have you used one? OP3T won't touch the battery longevity of LP3. Speedtest? I've seen two videos where OP3T lost to LP3 LoL. Spending $140 more for a mere Dev support is a worthless decision one would ever make. Even Pixel with the latest and greatest mobile OS is a joke in comparison.

You must be talking about the Le the pro 3 battery life is amazing. 7hrs of sot is terrible? Lol
