The Lenovo S5 Pro comes in aluminum unibody construction in Black, Pure Gold, and Ice Blue color options which make it look good and look premium. The front sports a 6.2-inch IPS LCD Display with a Full-HD+ resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels and a 19:9 aspect ratio, thanks to the Notch on top which also houses the 3D facial recognition setup.
