Lenovo's "all-screen" Z5 has a notch

According to Lenovo's live reveal in China earlier today, the notch is narrower than the iPhone X's (was that a boast?), and the Z5 has an particularly long display: A 6.2-inch 19:9 IPS LCD screen at 1080p resolution.

If there was ever a flawless time to refer to the age-old adage, "if something seems too good to be true, it probably is", this is nearly certainly it. Lenovo has at last revealed the Z5, a phone that it's spent the better part of the last month teasing.

Both the K5 Note and the A5 have been launched in China. It will be available in 6GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB RAM and storage configurations. Rs. 10,490) for the 4GB RAM+64GB storage version. It is powered by 1.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon 636 Mobile Platform coupled with 6GB of RAM. The storage is expandable up to 256GB via a microSD card. Out of the box, the device will run Android 8.1 Oreo with ZenUI 3.9 on top. Notably, the K5 Note is upgradable to Android P. The Lenovo K5 Note features a dual-camera setup at the back with a combination of 16-megapixel primary sensor with f/2.0 aperture and a 2-megapixel secondary sensor with f/2.4 aperture. There's an 8MP front-facing camera with F/2.0, face unlocking, and AI beautification software. A fingerprint scanner is also placed on the back of the Lenovo Z5, while the company's branding can be found back there as well. It is powered by a 4,000mAh battery. It measures 158.3 × 76.7 × 8.5mm and weighs 176 grams.


The Chinese company claimed that Lenovo Z5 sports the notch design on top of the display which is way thinner than the ones seen on the iPhone X and Xiaomi Mi 8. The phone ships with Android Oreo, but Huawei promises an upgrade to Android P upon release. By the looks of it, Lenovo has just flipped a regular phone around. On the connectivity front, the Z5 include Bluetooth v5.0, GPS, 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 3.5mm headphone jack, and USB Type-C. The device is backed by a 4000mAh battery.

Lenovo has finally taken the wraps off its much anticipated bezel-less smartphone - Z5. However, we can expect Lenovo to bring the K5 Note and the A5 to the Indian market as they conform to the budget segment, which is now brimming with a slew of smartphones launched by Xiaomi and other Chinese manufacturers.
