After launching Lenovo Z5 and Z5 Pro, the Chinese company is now all set to launch yet another smartphone in the Z5-series, dubbed as Lenovo Z5s. Lenovo Group VP Chang Cheng has already released a poster confirming the phone’s launch on 18th December.

Now, new poster related to the phone’s launch has surfaced online, which reveals that the phone will be running the latest Android 9 Pie operating system out-of-the-box. However, the most interesting revelation is that the Lenovo Z5s will be powered by Snapdragon 678 processor, which is yet to be launched by Qualcomm.

While nothing is known about the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 678 chipset, we expect it to be a mid-range chipset with a focus on artificial intelligence and photography. It could be a slight upgrade compared to the Snapdragon 675. Given the naming, we expect the chipset to fall between Snapdragon 675 and Snapdragon 710.

Lenovo has been teasing the smartphone, signifying the letter “S” with Speed, Shoot and Sexy. This suggests that the upcoming device will be a good-looking smartphone that will deliver top-notch performance and stellar photography experience.

As for the rest of the specifications, the smartphone is expected to come with a 6.3-inch Full HD+ IPS LCD display with 2240 x 1080 pixels screen resolution. It will feature an in-display front-facing camera, just like the Samsung Galaxy A8s but its placement will be at the center.

It is also confirmed that the phone will come with triple rear camera sensors along with an LED flash. It is expected to have a camera configuration of 13MP + 5MP + 2MP. On the front side, the phone will come equipped with an 8MP snapper for taking selfies and video calling.
