Lenovo Z5 with notched display, Snapdragon 636 launched at Rs 13,700

Lenovo Z5 Announced, Features A Display Notch After All

Lenovo's 'all-screen' smartphone is a lie

Lenovo has finally announced the much hyped Lenovo Z5 flagship smartphone in China, and it is a bit of a disappointing reveal especially when one considers the hype that preceded the phone. There is an 8MP front-facing camera with f/2.0 aperture. The Lenovo Z5 has been priced at CNY 1,299 for the base variant with 64GB storage and the 128GB storage variant has been priced at CNY 1,799.

It won't be wrong to say that the Lenovo Z5 was one of the most hyped phones of Q2 as a lot of sources suggested specifications like a fully bezel-less screen, 4TB internal storage etc. That's great, but doesn't undo the disingenuous sales pitch. Well, this shows that the rumour of a 95% screen-to-body ratio was well, just a rumour. Or maybe it doesn't. The Z5 will launch running with Android 8.1 Oreo, and Lenovo's ZUI 3.9 on top, with Android P and v4.0 of ZUI, promised as an update. All the physical keys are included on the right-hand side of the phone, while a Type-C USB port lies on the bottom along with the phone's loudspeaker. The 64GB and 128GB storage variants of Lenovo Z5 in Blue and Aurora colors are priced at 1399 Yuan and 1799 Yuan respectively.

With that being said, the Lenovo Z5 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor and features dual 16MP rear cameras. The K5 Note has a metal back, and the A5 just has a metal-like finish. The smartphone packs a fingerprint scanner at the back. The internal storage on the device can be further expanded up to 256GB via microSD card. Talking about the specs, Lenovo has added a 5.45-inch HD+ display inside the device, and it's powered by the quad-core MediaTek MT6739 SoC. It supports connectivity options such as Dual-SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, and Global Positioning System. The smartphone runs ZenUI 3.9, based on Android Oreo. The USP of the phone is the 3750mAh battery inside, which is rated to deliver two days worth of battery life on a single charge. Connectivity options include Dual-SIM, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS + GLONASS. The setup comes with 4K support, AI capabilities, HDR+, f/2.0 aperture, and an LED flash.
