Chinese electronics and hardware giant Lenovo recently took covers off a new 5G ready version of its flagship smartphone in its home market. While 5G enabled handsets are nothing new, what makes this new handset called the Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G special is that it is widely thought to be the most affordable 5G capable handset currently available anywhere on the planet. In China, the Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G retails for a price of 3,299 Yuan, which translates to around $470 or INR 34,000. The standard 4G variant of the Z6 Pro was launched there earlier this year. In fact, Lenovo also launched the standard 4G version of the Z6 Pro here in India, where the phone comes in a single 8GB+128GB version that is currently priced at around INR 31,000. In China, however, the base version of the 5G variant offers 8GB of RAM and 256GB storage.
