We have seen a lot of phones with sliders this year, from the Oppo Find X and the Vivo NEX to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and the Honor Magic 2. One thing that’s common in all these phones is the bezel-less design without any notch or cutout. Today, Lenovo launched the Z5 Pro in China. One of the highlights of the Lenovo Z5 Pro is the impressive screen-to-body ratio of 95% (95.06% to be precise). Again, this is what the company claims, and if this is true, then this is the phone with the highest screen-to-body ratio right now.
The phone looks no different compared to the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and the Honor Magic 2 from the front. It has a bezel-less design with a small chin on the bottom. This chin is smaller than the one on Mi Mix 3 and the Magic 2, at least in the press renders. The Lenovo Z5 Pro has a magnetic slider that houses the cameras, the earpiece, and the sensors. Again, this is a magnetic slider and doesn’t feature any motor like the one on Oppo Find X.
There is a dual camera setup on the rear, but we were expecting a triple or quad camera setup like the Huawei Mate 20 Pro since the company teased one. It looks like we’ll see that on any other device from the company. There is no fingerprint scanner on the rear or the side since it is placed under the display. The phone has a glass and metal build that looks premium.
The Lenovo Z5 Pro has a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display with a Full-HD+ resolution (2340 x 1080 pixels). The display is protected with the Corning Gorilla Glass, and it is an AMOLED panel from Samsung.
Under the hood, the Lenovo Z5 Pro is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor. It is a 10nm mid-range chipset that is right now the best from Qualcomm in the mid-range segment. There is 6GB RAM and 64/128GB ROM. We doubt if the phone has expandable storage since there is no mention of the microSD card support on the official site.
Coming to the cameras, the Lenovo Z5 Pro has dual cameras on the back as well as on the front. On the rear, the phone has a primary 16MP Sony IMX576 sensor with f/1.8 aperture and a secondary 24MP Sony IMX519 sensor. On the front, there is a primary 16MP f/2.2 camera and a secondary 8MP camera. The rear camera can shoot 4K videos and features AI features as well. On the front, the phone also has an IR Face scanner for accurate Facial recognition even in the dark.
The Lenovo Z5 Pro houses a 3,350mAh battery and runs Android Oreo out of the box with the ZUI 10.0 on top. There is no headphone jack, but the box includes a dongle, so that’s good. As mentioned in the beginning, there is an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
The Z5 Pro comes in a single colour – Ceramic Black. The 6GB + 64GB variant is priced at CNY 1,998 ($288) while the 6GB + 128GB variant at CNY 2,298 ($331). The pre-orders have already begun in China, and the phone will start shipping from October 10.
