Following the launch of the Lenovo S5 Pro, the company is now gearing up to launch an even advanced smartphone, the Z5 Pro, in China. The company took to its Weibo channel today to reveal the launch date of the Z5 Pro in its homeland. According to the official post by Lenovo, the Z5 Pro is debuting on November 2, 2018, in Beijing at the Lenovo Global Headquarters. Let’s check out the other details about the upcoming phone below.
‘Sliding’ Through A New Trend With Full-Screen Design
The company’s group vice president Chang Cheng recently claimed that the Lenovo Z5 Pro is an improved device over the previously launched Lenovo phones. He said that the Z5 Pro would be a polished product with attention paid to every tiny detail and enhanced integration of the latest technology. In one of the teaser posters of the Z5 Pro, we figured it is the first sliding phone from the house of Lenovo. With Sliding phone we mean that it will have a same setup as the Oppo Find X. The sliding part will be placed on top of the front panel, with camera sensors stacked into it along with other sensors. As seen on the Find X (review), the slider will automatically come up and go down for Face Unlock feature and also when the camera app is opened.
To recall, the phone was also teased by the company’s VP at the Lenovo TechWorld Innovation Technology Conference. At the event, he claimed that the Z5 Pro would feature 100% screen-to-body ratio along with an In-display fingerprint scanner. If the phone turns out to be as contended with full screen and In-display scanner, it will be rivaling Xiaomi’s already launched Mi Mix 3 smartphone which comes with magnetic sliding mechanism and screen-to-body ratio of 93.4%.
What Else Could Power The Upcoming Lenovo Z5 Pro Smartphone
Some of the other reports about the Lenovo Z5 Pro revealed that it could come powered by a Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 8GB of RAM. It’s worth noting that at the Lenovo S5 Pro launch event, the company’s VP confirmed that the Z5 Pro would feature best of tech but at a cheaper price tag than similar phones by Xiaomi and Honor.
Other rumored specs of the Lenovo Z5 Pro include a 6.42-inch AMOLED display with 1080×2340 pixels resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. The phone is tipped to come with a 4000mAh battery with support for fast-charging. In the camera department, the Z5 Pro is expected to sport a 20MP+16MP dual camera setup at the rear and a 25MP selfie shooter on the front. Some of the previous reports also hinted that the slider camera mechanism on the Z5 Pro might come with an option for manual sliding, which means users will be able to bring it up whenever they want.
As we mentioned, in the beginning, the phone will also include Face Unlock and in-display fingerprint scanner. It may also include USB 2.0, Type C with 1.0 reversible connector. It looks like the Z5 Pro might ditch the 3.5mm audio jack for the USB Type-C.
We will get to know all the details about the phone on November 2 when Lenovo makes it official in China. Stay tuned with us to get all the information.
