Design and Display
It is one of the cheapest sliding Smartphone out there, and Lenovo understands the want and interest of the people but they are looking for the budgeted market share. Here is a notch-less Z5 Pro device, which is the successor to the Z5.
The phone will be available in black color option, and you won’t find that back mounted fingerprint sensor scanner but it is built right into the display, which is the underscreen fingerprint sensor.
A lot of sliding smartphones has been launched for a couple of days, but the Lenovo Z5 Pro only arrives with mid-range specs. Features a 6.39-inch Full-HD+ Super AMOLED display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio and Corning Gorilla Glass 5 panel.
The bezels at the top and bottom are radically smaller than an average Smartphone, and you won’t that bezels at the top anyways. Apart from the flagship specs, the price is the actual point here.
Camera and connectivity
The design is totally against the pop-up cameras Smartphone and the recent Honor Magic 2 and Xiaomi Mi Mix 3. But you will still find that dual front facing cameras, while the other is a infrared (IR) sensor for facial recognition.
Apart from the 8-megapixel IR sensor at the front, it comes with a 16-megapxiels sensor f/2.2 aperture. The selfie snapper is enhanced and equipped to bring in a spectacular shots, beautification and many more.
Meanwhile, you will find a 1.22um 16-megapixel main camera Sony IMX519 sensor + a secondary 0.9um 24-megapixels camera Sony IMX576 sensor, for low-light photography using pixel binning.
The cameras aren’t that bad, because you can still get up to 4K video capture, but lacks super slow motion mode. Both comes with an f/1.8 aperture and dual-tone LED flash.
For network and connectivity, it features 2G, 3G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, NFC, dual-SIM (Nano), and USB Type-C. Well, thanks for ditching the quaint USB 3.0 port, but for wired headphones, you’ll need a USB-C to 3.5mm adapter.
