The smartphone manufacturing industry is consistently evolving and as the years roll by, there is an incessant quest for more innovation. The full-screen design has been an area of development over the past year. Last year, Essential Phone got a higher screen-to-body ratio by using a teardrop notch. This notch was modified by Apple into the iPhone X-like notch. We have also seen a pop-up camera design, like what we have in Vivo NEX as well as the periscope design of the OPPO Find X. Now, it appears that the slide screen design is taking the center stage. In 2018, we saw three smartphones with the slide-screen design. Xiaomi Mi MiX 3 was first launched, then we saw the Honor Magic 2 and finally the cheapest Lenovo Z5 Pro. Well, the Z5 Pro had serious stocking issues because the demand was well more than the supply. However, this smartphone will soon be available for only $359.99 on Gearbest. It is currently on ARRIVAL NOTICE but we can confirm that it will be available in a few days.
After the serious gaffe by Lenovo with the Z5, only a few people still take this company seriously. In fact, many now believe that whatever comes from the hierarchy of Lenovo is just a smokescreen to cover a “lie”. However, it appears that Lenovo has now proven its critics wrong and the Z5 Pro is just as the company promised. The Lenovo Z5 Pro is certainly going to compete with the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 and the Honor Magic 2.
The Lenovo Z5 Pro comes with a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED screen which has a screen ratio of up to 95.06%, the highest in the industry so far. The Lenovo Z5 Pro features a six-position sliding structure with parallel dual-axis and seamless connection. In terms of core configuration, the Lenovo Z5 Pro is packed with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710AIE Turbo chip coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage.
In addition, the Lenovo Z5 Pro is also equipped with an on-screen fingerprint recognition module, which is the thinnest reader with a thickness of 0.98mm. In the camera department, this smartphone is equipped with a 24MP + 16MP Sony AI dual-camera on the rear. The main camera uses a 1.8?m equivalent large pixel and supports backlight AI super-picture quality, night scene AI super picture quality, AI video super picture quality functions. On the front, there is a 16MP + 8MP camera, which supports 80 degrees zero light face unlock. This smartphone runs on Android Oreo and a 3200 mAh battery keeps its lights on. Finally, the Lenovo Z5 Pro 6GB+64GB version is available at 1998 yuan ($287), 6GB +128GB version costs 2298 yuan ($330).
