Lenovo Teases Z5 Pro with a Front Camera Slider Design


Lenovo had earlier teased Z5 Pro’s predecessor Z5 with a bezel-less design but the launch confirmed it to have side bezels and a notched display

Lenovo will be launching the Z5 Pro smartphone in China on 1st November 2018. The Lenovo Z5 Pro will feature a front camera slider design confirmed teaser photos posted by company’s vice president Chang Cheng on a Chinese social networking site named Weibo.

The teaser pics posted on Weibo clearly indicate a manual slider design for revealing the front camera module.

Xiaomi Mi Mix 3, which was recently launched in China features a same manual slider. The news of Lenovo Z5 Pro sporting an in-display fingerprint scanner, was also confirmed by Chang Cheng.

Previous launch date

Lenovo had earlier said that the company will be launching Lenovo Z5 Pro on 1st October 2018. However, the company had missed the date. Though the new launch date and camera slider design has been confirmed, Lenovo has still not made it clear whether the launch event will be global or not.

Another video posted on Weibo claims to showcase how the slider mechanism of Lenovo Z5 Pro will work.

Successor to Lenovo Z5

The Lenovo Z5 Pro, once launched will be the successor to Lenovo Z5.

Launched earlier this year, Lenovo Z5 was marketed as a truly bezel-less phone. However, the Lenovo Z5 launch was not bezel-less as the company had claimed earlier. It was found to be sporting side bezels and a notch on top of the screen display.

Lenovo Z5 features

Powered by an Adreno 509 GPU paired with Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 processor, Lenovo Z5 features a 6.2-inch FHD+ notched display. The resolution on offer with the Z5 is 2246×1080 pixels.

The smartphone has a 6GB RAM paired with options of 64GB or 128GB internal storage. The storage space in Lenovo Z5 is expandable via a microSD card. Lenovo Z5 comes paired with an in-built 3,330 mAH battery.

It will be interesting to see whether the company will hold true to what it has teased about Lenovo Z5 Pro on the Weibo network as it had also posted teasers of Z5 on Weibo before its launch, which later were found not true.
