Last week, Lenovo Group VP Chang Cheng had confirmed through his Weibo account that he will be soon revealing the launch date of the upcoming Lenovo Z5 flagship. Today, Cheng has confirmed that the smartphone will be officially unveiled on June 5. The launch event will take place at Beijing, China at 2 PM on the said date.
Even though Cheng has been updating Lenovo fans on the marvelous features of the Lenovo Z5, he is yet to confirm on its specifications. According to Cheng, the Lenovo Z5 is blessed with 4 advanced technological features and 18 patented technologies.
Like the Vivo APEX (or NEX?) smartphone, the Lenovo Z5 will be offering a very high screen-to-body ratio. It is said that the Vivo APEX offers around 91 percent screen-to-body ratio. The Lenovo Z5 may defeat it in the display segment as it is pegged to arrive with nearly 95 percent screen space. There is a possibility that the handset may feature under-display fingerprint scanner.
Also, the screen is expected to be surrounded by super-slim bezels on all four sides. Some are speculating that it may feature a pop-up front-facing camera like the Vivo APEX phone. The Huawei Mate RS surprise the smartphone industry by coming with an internal storage capacity of 512 GB. Cheng has teased the upcoming Lenovo Z5 will offer a mammoth storage space of 4 TB.
The Lenovo Z5 will be equipped with AI powered dual rear cameras. The camera samples of the phone have revealed that it can capture stunning portrait shots. The battery is other department where the Lenovo Z5 may excel over flagship phones from brands. Cheng has teased that the Z5 can offer a standby time of 45 days and even when the battery percentage goes down to zero percent, it will still have enough juice to last for 30 minutes.
There is a possibility that the Snapdragon 845 chipset may power the Lenovo Z5. With less than 10 days remaining for its launch, it is likely that the rumor mill may spill more information on it in this week. It may also show up with all its specifications on TENAA.
In June, the Lenovo Z5 will be competing with the likes of Vivo NEX and Honor Play. It is speculated that the Vivo APEX could be rebranded as Vivo NEX while the Honor PLAY packed with breakthrough technology is confirmed to debut on June 6.
