Lenovo have finally revealed details of their latest development – a mid-range smartphone that goes by the name of the Z5. Lenovo exclusilvey revealed the Z5 at a mobile phone event in Beijing. The public’s first impressions were positive, as they showed it’s slick design off to the world for the first time. Lenovo have coupled the striking aesthetics with impressive capabilities. These both form a smartphone that will content well with the middle of the latest smartphone range.
It is thought that Lenovo will release the Z5 later this month in their home country of China. However they have not revealed when they will release it to the rest of the world.
Rumours have been circulating about the Z5 for months, as Lenovo’s vice president has been posting teasers online. One said that Lenovo are soon to be revealing a revolutionary all-screen device that has 4TB of internal storage space.
Unfortunately, the end result falls more in line with current industry standards. However this doesn’t mean that the Z5 doesn’t have much to shout about. Nobody has yet realised the ultimate dream of creating a bezel-free smartphone. The Z5 still achieves an amazing 90% screen to body ratio, with only a slight notch that impedes on the 6.2 inch 1080p display.
The notch on the face of the phone is there for good reason though. It helps to accommodate both of the high performance cameras that appear on the Z5. The Lenovo Z5 features a dual rear-facing camera which consists of a 16MP primary camera and a 8MP secondary camera, as well as another 8MP selfie camera on the front of the device. AI technology will enhance the image quality of these cameras.
The Lenovo Z5 is also quite a performer. It’s powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 chipset, and has 6GB or RAM. It also has a 3,300mAh battery with support for fast charging. There will be two options for internal memory – 64GB and 128GB. A significant amount, but it falls far short of the 4TB mentioned in the teasers.
As mentioned previously, Lenovo will release the Z5 in China before the rest of the world get to see it. So we can expect reviews to start flooding the internet in the coming days.
