We’ve been hearing a lot about Lenovo S5 recently, thanks to the teases and remarks from Lenovo’s Head himself on Weibo. Also, the launch of the phone is around the corner and is scheduled to launch on March 20th, just after it’s competitor Redmi Note 5’s launch on March 16th.
Now, we have a slight idea of how the phone looks from the previous teasers. Now, we get a complete look at how the phone will look with this new renders leak of Lenovo S5, take a look at the leaked renders of Lenovo S5:
One thing that comes into our mind after seeing these images are just how similar the phone looks to the OnePlus 5T, both from front and back (albeit the curved corners of the display on Lenovo S5). Even the colours match the OnePlus 5T. Just take a look at the OnePlus 5T lava red edition and you’ll know what I’s talking about.
Enough of the rant, let’s talk about the phone.
Lenovo head teased last day that the phone will be more powerful than that of Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 5, which is a bold statement, since Redmi Note 5 (India’s Redmi Note 5 Pro) comes with a Snapdragon 636 SoC, which is a beast when it comes to performance. From the previous listing of the phone at TENAA, it was given that it is powered by an octa-core 2Ghz SoC. Which can mean that it can be powered by a Mediatek P40 chipset, which is the latest range of SoCs from Mediatek. And also, it might offer better performance than Snapdragon 636, at least on paper.
Now, it was also revealed earlier that the phone will come with a massive 6000mAh battery. Coming to the display part, the phone will sport a 5.65 inch Full HD+ display. Lenovo also teased earlier that the phone will be coming with their resurrected ZUI skin, which Lenovo discontinued earlier.
The camera setup in the Lenovo S5 is said to be a 13+16MP one, we’re not sure if the secondary camera is a telephoto lens, but the higher MP count suggests that it isn’t just a depth sensor.
NOTE: The source came with this too obstructive watermarks, these are the only images available as of now.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 2s to Support Portrait Mode & Full HD Slow Motion Video Recording
The release of Xiaomi‘s latest iteration in its flagship series- the Mi Mix 2S is right around the corner. There are solid leaks hinting about the device’s specifications and even a hands-on video. We’ve witnessed a bunch of hands-on images leaks for the device featuring different design languages. If the leaks turn out to be true, the Mi Mix 2S will be the first phone in the series to feature dual rear cameras.
If the device is to be coupled with a pair of cameras, then the dual camera setup is definitely expected to feature AI capabilities for scene detection. Some information hinting about the features of the camera has been found by XDA Developers today. The below code proves the use of AI to identify the picture scene for you and optimize the picture based on the scene.
The infamous portrait mode is also present in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. This is an essential feature as almost every phone launching in the market these days come with a pre-equipped portrait mode feature. In addition to it, Google has decided to open-source its tool used for achieving portrait mode shots on the Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL.
The report claims that the device will also feature multi-frame noise reduction technology in the MIUI Camera. It allows the camera to rapidly capture multiple photos and superimpose to cut down the noise.
The device also allows users to shoot slow-motion videos of HD quality (1080p) at 120fps. It also supports HD slow-motion videos(720p) at 240fps. This is a major upgrade considering the fact that the Mi Mix 2 could only achieve HD slow motion at 120fps. It also supports HEVC video encoding, parallel processing, and dual SAT cameras.
The device sports a 6.01-inch Full HD+ display and it comes with a resolution of 2160*1080 pixels. This basically means that the handset will be coming with an aspect ratio of 18:9. The device is powered by Snapdragon 845 SoC. It is coupled with 8GB of RAM.

- Snapdragon 845 SoC
- 6.01-inch Full HD+ Display

Meizu E3 Specs, Pricing & More Leaked! The Redmi Note 5 Pro Killer
We’ve been hearing lots about this new device from Meizu, the Meizu E3. It has been called as the Redmi Note 5 (or Pro) killer by some, and it’s for a reason! Now, we have more details about the device. The all-new Meizu E3 is all set to be launched on 21st of March, so let’s dive-in and checkout the specifications of this device.
This device sports a 5.99-inch full-screen display which comes in 18:9 aspect ratio and has a resolution of 2160*1080 pixels. The device is solid as the rock, thanks to the full metal design. Towards the upper left corner of the device, there is a dual rear camera which comes with the Sony IMX363 sensor.
Now, this is something which is interesting because we can find this sensor on the Xiaomi Mi Mix 2S. Now talking about some power, the device comes with Snapdragon 636 chipset and is coupled with 4/6GB of RAM. A non-removable 3000 mAh battery backs the device and yes it does come with the fast charging capabilities, 20W to be specific.
Talking about the pricing the device is priced as a sub 15k device which is around $240. With this price tag, you will be getting the 4GB RAM variant which comes along with 32GB of internal storage, and the 6GB RAM variant is priced at $315 which comes with 128GB of internal storage, and yes there is no 64GB storage variant.
So all in all, considering the price the device seem to be a decent flick, but then again we can really judge the performance of the device just by looking at the specs. It also needs to be seen if the device would be launching in India or not, we rather think Meizu would skip this as they’re not at all interested in Indian market nowadays. We would definitely keep you posted with all the other latest updates, till then keep reading.

- Snapdragon 636
- 4/6GB RAM
