Last month, Lenovo launched its much-awaited mid-range smartphone Lenovo Z5. While the phone didn’t turned out as teased by the company prior to its launch, the device has performed well in terms of sales.
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.
Recently, Lenovo reveled that the Aurora color variant will go on sale in China on July 17th, i.e. tomorrow and will be available in only one variant — 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. It is priced at 1,799 Yuan, which roughly converts to $269.
The Lenovo Z5 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. The smartphone comes in two storage options — 64GB and 128GB, but 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 for taking selfies and video calling.
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 the upcoming Android P version update for the Lenovo Z5. The device is powered by a 3,300mAh battery which comes with support for 18W fast charging.
