Lenovo has recently launched a duo of its Z5 family – the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT and the Lenovo Z5s. The former one is a high-end device while the latter one falls in the mid-range category that is considered as an improved version of the 6-month-old Lenovo Z5. Furthermore, the device also becomes the first one from the Chinese brand equipped with triple camera setup.
Lenovo Z5s – Features
The Lenovo Z5s brings an IPS LTPS LCD panel on the front that measures 6.3-inches diagonally at an FHD+ resolution of 1080 x 2340 pixels and aspect ratio of 19.5:9. While the waterdrop notch on the front houses a single lens 16MP selfie shooter, the glossy body on the rear brings triple camera setup that looks fairly similar to Huawei P20 Pro.
The Lenovo Z5s is a dual SIM supported handset that runs the latest Android 9.0 Pie under the hood with Lenovo’s ZUI 10 lying on top. The Chinese manufacturer has powered the device with the new Snapdragon 710 chipset that promises nearly flagship performance in midrange devices for cheap. In addition, the chipset also features hardware-level machine learning, which is nice.
Lenovo brings two variants of the Z5s in terms of its storage capacity. Users can opt to the higher combo of 6GB RAM and 128GB native storage or rely on the regular one featuring 4GB RAM and 64GB of internal storage. You can even use a dedicated microSD card to further expand the storage too.
As mentioned earlier, Lenovo has taken a step ahead in the photography department while featuring the trendy triple camera setup and getting apart from the conventional dual-cam features. The main camera setup of the Lenvo Z5s comprises of a 16 MP primary shooter with wide angle aperture, an 8 MP telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and a conventional 5 MP depth sensor.
Pricing and Availability
The Lenovo Z5s is currently available in the home market of China priced at CNY 1,398 (~$202, PKR 28,000) for the base model in Starry Night Grey color. However, the higher variant is priced higher but offers three color options to choose from Starry Night Grey, Love Orange and Titanium Blue.
