Similar to Lenovo Z2 Plus, the ZUK Edge has a fingerprint sensor integrated under the home button called as U-Touch. Apart from functioning as a fingerprint scanner, the U-Touch has a few tricks up its sleeve that can come in quite handy at times. It may need some getting-used-to, though.

The Lenovo ZUK Edge will hit the stores on January 1 in China. There’s no word on global availability yet. In terms of pricing, the 4GB variant is priced at CNY 2,299 (approximately Rs. 22,442) and the 6GB variant comes with a price tag of CNY 2499 (approximately Rs. 24,394).
