After a lot of teasing, Lenovo has unveiled their new additions to the Z5 series in China today: the Lenovo Z5s and Lenovo Z5 Pro GT. Along with these two, Lenovo S5 Pro GT was launched too. The Z5s grabbed enough attention when the leaks were out and it was already confirmed to be featuring a triple rear camera setup.
Though a previous teaser actually suggested that the device is coming with a display hole camera with the hole on the centre, but it has been proved to be a lie, as the phone comes with a waterdrop notch instead of the hole. Also, it was teased that the phone is coming with the SD678 SoC, the phone actually comes with SD710 instead. And, it is the second device from Lenovo to be featuring the 10nm octa-core SD710 chipset.
It is having a 6.3 inches LTPS IPS LCD display of 1080 x 2340 resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. It is having a water-drop notch at the top for housing the front camera and maximizing the aspect ratio. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass for scratch resistance.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the Lenovo Z5s is featuring a vertical triple camera setup at the back. A 16MP f/1.8 wideangle lens serve as the primary camera, coupled with a 8MP telephoto lens which offers upto 2X optical zoom and a 5MP depth sensor. It’ll be able to shoot 4K and 1080P videos at 30fps. The camera setup is located at the top left side, with a dual LED flash resting beneath it. The fingerprint sensor is located at the back. The front camera is a 16 MP,f/2.0 shooter.
The phone is powered by a 3300 mAh battery and it’s having a USB 2.0 Type-C connector and quick charge support. It runs on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, with Lenovo’s custom skin ZUI10 on top. The phone is said to be packed with different AI capabilities.
The device will be available in 3 colour variants: Starry Night Grey, Love Orange and Titanium Blue. Pricing starts at ¥1,398 (approx. Rs.14,400) for the 4GB RAM + 64GB storage option, ¥1,598 (approx. Rs.16,400) for the 6GB RAM + 64GB storage option, and ¥1,898 (approx. Rs.19,500) for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage option.
