The Chinese smartphone giant has launched its new flagship Lenovo Z5 Pro in its homeland China after dropping heavy teasers bragging about its bezel-less display. Fortunately, this time the company got many things right with the device. It comes with a bezel-less display aided by the sliding mechanism as seen with the Mi Mix 3 and Honor Magic 2 but carries a much lower price tag!
Coming to the specifications, the Lenovo Z5 Pro comes with a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with a Full-HD+ resolution of 2340×1080 pixels, in an aspect ratio of 19.5:9, without any notch! It further aids to the 95% screen to body ratio, thanks to the slider mechanism which hides in the front cameras and other stuff below the display and is boasted to have been tested 300,000 times by the company. Interestingly, we also have an In-display fingerprint scanner as the primary method of unlocking phone.
Under the hood, it is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 SoC coupled with Adreno 616 GPU, 6GB of RAM and comes in 64GB and 128GB storage configurations. There is also a microSD card slot with support for up to 256GB storage expansion.
In the optics department, the phone packs in a dual camera setup at the back, comprising a 16-megapixel Sony IMX519 sensor and a 24-megapixel Sony IMX576 sensor, both having an aperture of f/1.8. On the front, we have yet another pair of dual cameras – a 16-megapixel primary selfie shooter and an 8-megapixel IR sensor for face unlock feature.
On the software front, the smartphone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo OS with Lenovo’s ZUI 10 skin layered on top. It draws its juice from a 3,350mAh battery coupled with fast charging. Connectivity options include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, GPS and USB Type C.
As far as the pricing is concerned, the Lenovo Z5 Pro carries a price tag of CNY 1,998 (roughly Rs. 21,400) for the 6GB RAM and 64GB onboard storage variant, while the higher 128GB storage variant costs CNY 2,298 (roughly Rs. 24,300). It will go on sale in Black color option in China, starting November 11.
