Last month, Lenovo launched its much-awaited mid-range smartphone Lenovo Z5. Despite the phone not being what was teased by the company and what people expected, it has performed well in terms of sales with the device getting sold out within minutes.
While the Lenovo Z5 was announced on sale in three color options — Schumann Black, Indigo Blue, and Aurora, which switches color from Blue to Purple depending on the lighting. However, only the Black and Blue color version were available for sale.
Lenovo has now announced that the Lenovo Z5 Aurora color version will go on sale on 17th July in China. It is priced at 1,799 Yuan which roughly converts to $269 and is currently available for pre-order on JD.com.
The smartphone comes with a 6.2-inch Full-HD+ display with screen resolution of 2240 x 1080p pixels, 19:9 aspect ratio and a notch on top. The display is covered by a layer of 2.5D Gorilla Glass which protects it from minor scratches. The notch on the display is smaller than flagship phones like the iPhone X or the Xiaomi Mi 8.
Under the hood, the device is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 636 processor along with 6GB of RAM. While the phone comes in two storage options — 64GB and 128GB, the Aurora color variant is available for the 128GB internal storage model only.
There’s a dual camera setup at the back of the phone with a primary 16MP f/2.0 sensor and a secondary 8MP sensor for depth information. The smartphone provides enhanced camera experience using artificial intelligence with support for 4D beauty mode, AI noise reduction, night mode, and AI portrait mode. On the front side, there’s an 8MP f/2.0 sensor with beauty mode.
It runs on Android Oreo operating system out of the box with the company’s own ZUI 4.0 on top which brings fluidity of the UI and adds Full U-Touch 4.0 Screen gestures, AI voice commands, and features such as automatic call answer via gestures. The company has also promised Android P update for the Lenovo Z5. The device is powered by a 3,300mAh battery with 18W fast charge support.
