Following the Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 and the Honor Magic 2, Lenovo has released its own take on a slider phone, and that’s the Lenovo Z5 Pro. The device is continuing the sliding mechanism trend that has let the manufacturer make the smartphone bezel-less. One major advantage the Z5 Pro has over the other two phones is certainly the price.

Lenovo Z5 Pro Specifications

A few months back, Lenovo had teased the launch of the Z5 showcasing it to be a bezel-less phone. However, that turned out to be completely false, as the device had a notch and a chin. However, Lenovo seems to have rectified its mistake by launching an actual bezel-less device.

Lenovo Z5 Pro display

The Lenovo Z5 Pro is a tall smartphone with a 6.39-inch of Super AMOLED display that comes in Full HD+ resolution. Lenovo has partnered with Samsung for the display front which is definitely good to see. This display is bordered by a small 2.07 mm of bezels. These bezels have made the Z5 Pro the smartphone with the highest screen-to-body ratio that stands at just 95.06%. This display has an aspect ratio of 19.5:9 and is HDR 10 compliant which is nice to see.

Underneath the hood, the Lenovo Z5 Pro has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 chipset that is aided by 6 GB of RAM and Adreno 616 GPU. The device runs on Android v8.1 Oreo with Lenovo’s own ZUI 10 on top. Storage wise, the device is available in 64 GB and 128 GB versions.

In terms of optics, the Lenovo Z5 Pro is equipped with dual 16-megapixel and 24-megapixel cameras accompanied by dual-LED dual-tone flash. The camera setup supports 4K video capture at 30fps. There are also dual cameras up front as the slider reveals 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel selfie cameras.

The slider also has an IR face recognition system embedded. The Lenovo Z5 Pro is backed by a 3,360 mAh battery which has Fast Charging enabled.
