Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 was announced this month, and we were guessing Xiaomi, OnePlus or Samsung to be the first to launch a phone with this processor next year. But, it looks like Lenovo stole the whole limelight today as the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT was launched in China with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855. Yes, you read right. This phone is powered by the Snapdragon 855, which we are yet to see on any Samsung, Xiaomi or OnePlus device. Moreover, this is the first smartphone that has 12GB RAM!
The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is a premium high-end smartphone, and so is the design of it. There is glass on both the front and back, along with the metal frame. Like the McLaren Edition of OnePlus 6T, the Z5 Pro GT has carbon fiber finish under that back glass and red accents. Also, the phone has an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 95.06%, so there is a slider for the front-facing camera, sensors and the earpiece like the one on Mi Mix 3 and the Honor Magic 2.
The phone ditches the headphone jack, but there is a USB Type-C port on the bottom, along with the speaker grill. Overall, this is one of the best looking phones out there right now.
As for the specifications, there is a 6.39-inch Full-HD+ Super AMOLED panel with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and the Corning Gorilla Glass protection. There is a small chin on the bottom, but except that, there are hardly any noticeable bezels on the rest of the three sides. The processor powering the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 that is the latest 7nm chipset from Qualcomm.
The Snapdragon 855 is an octa-core processor with 1x Kryo 485 at 2.84GHz, 3x Kryo 485 at 2.42GHz and 4x Kryo 485 at 1.80GHz. There is Adreno 640 GPU for the Graphics related tasks like heavy gaming. The Z5 Pro GT has 6/8/12GB RAM and 128/256/512GB internal storage. It was ok till 8GB, but 12GB RAM seems an overkill!
On the rear, there are dual cameras. So, the phone has a primary 16MP Sony IMX 519 sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a secondary 24MP Sony IMX 576 sensor with f/1.8 aperture. There are dual cameras on the front as well. So, the primary front camera is a 16MP f/2.2 sensor, and there is a secondary 8MP Infrared camera for Face recognition.
As you can notice in the renders above, there is no fingerprint scanner on the rear or the sides. This is because the phone has an in-display fingerprint scanner. The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT has a 3,350mAh battery that supports Fast Charging. Android 9 Pie runs out of the box with ZUI 10 on top.
Finally, here is the pricing of the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT for the Chinese market –
- 6GB RAM + 128GB ROM – CNY 2,698 ($390)
- 8GB RAM + 128GB ROM – CNY 2,998 ($435)
- 8GB RAM + 256GB ROM – CNY 3,398 ($492)
- 12GB RAM + 512GB ROM – CNY 4,398 ($635)
The pre-orders of the phone start from January 15 and the sale will start from January 24.
