"Lenovo Z5 with 6.2" Notch Display & Snapdragon 636 SoC Launched

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. The front camera is an 8MP unit, and just like the rear camera setup, it too features some AI features.

The Lenovo Z5 can be pre-ordered from June 12th in Aurora Blue, Black, and Indigo Blue, with prices starting from 1299 yuan (roughly $200) in China.

The company has priced the Lenovo Z5 at 1,399 Yuan for the 6GB RAM and 64GB internal version and 1,799 Yuan for the 6GB RAM and 128GB inbuilt-storage. That's great, but doesn't undo the disingenuous sales pitch.

The Lenovo A5 sports a 5.45-inch HD+ (1440 × 720 pixels) 2.5D curved glass display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Or maybe it doesn't. There is no official word yet regarding when/whether the Lenovo Z5 will be launched in India.

Facepalm: Although Lenovo had talked about the Z5's "18 patented technologies", there was always some confusion over the "4TB of internal storage" claim. The K5 Note has a metal back, and the A5 just has a metal-like finish. The phone runs on ZUI 4.0 which brings fluidity of the UI and adds Full U-Touch 4.0 Screen gestures, AI voice commands, and features such as automatic call answer via gestures. The phone has a 6.2-inch 2246×1080 LCD, a Snapdragon 636, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, and a 3300mAh battery. The device comes with a 16GB and 32GB storage variants, with expandable memory up to 256GB via micro SD card slot. The phone also bears a fingerprint sensor at the rear. It is powered by MediaTek MT6739 processor coupled with PowerVR Rogue GE8100 GPU for graphics performance. Concerning software, the phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based ZUI 3.9. It is powered by a 4,000mAh battery. There is an 8MP front-facing camera with f/2.2 aperture. Measuring 153x75.65x7.85mm, the smartphone offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-FI, Bluetooth, GPS and USB Type C as connectivity options. It is possible that the company is planning to introduce another Z5 handset soon (even though that's not as likely), so that the company can justify all those teasers, but until then, let's take a look at the Lenovo Z5.

Lenovo has priced both the phones pretty aggressively in China.
