"The most frameless" smartphone from Lenovo officially presented

06 June 2018
Perhaps one of the most highly anticipated smartphones in recent times was the Lenovo Z5. The company's flagship gadget has been called none other than "the most frameless. Finally, at Computex 2018 in Taipei, the smartphone was officially unveiled and it turned out to be far from what many had imagined.Recall that Lenovo representatives, including company vice president, Chang Cheng, promised to release a smartphone with a record-breaking frameless display, occupying more than 95% of the front panel area, and also having as much as 4TB of built-in memory. It seems that both promises failed to be fulfilled. The Lenovo Z5 received, although not the largest, but very noticeable bottom edge, as well as a notch at the top of the screen. In previously published Chang Chen renders "monobrow" the gadget did not have, and when the other day live photos of the smartphone leaked into the network, many thought that they show a junior model of the flagship. Alas, these expectations were not met. As for the built-in memory, then there is 64 or 128 GB, depending on the configuration. By the way, its volume can be increased with a microSD card up to 256 GB.Otherwise, Lenovo Z5 is worthy of attention. The device boasts a 6.2-inch display with a resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels (Full HD+) with an aspect ratio of 19:9. It occupies 90% of the front panel, slightly falling short of the claimed 95%. The hardware basis of the gadget became Qualcomm Snapdragon 636, which is far from the title of the flagship, but still powerful enough for comfortable work and games, and the amount of RAM will be 6 GB. The smartphone has a dual main camera 16 + 8 megapixels, as well as a front one at 8 megapixels. At the back there is a fingerprint scanner. The device supports two SIM cards, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi (802.11 ac), Bluetooth 5, GPS + GLONASS, and received a USB Type-C port and, importantly, retained a 3.5mm headphone jack. The battery has support for fast charging technology and has a capacity of 3000 mAh, which casts doubt on another of the company's promises - battery life of up to 45 days in standby mode. But we will be able to check this only after the official launch of sales. Lenovo Z5 is reported to run Android 8.1 Oreo with the ZUI 3.9 shell, but the developers have already promised to release an update to Android P with ZUI 4.0.Lenovo Z5 will hit the market in black, blue and gradient - Aurora, which, as well as the design of the back of the smartphone in general, will seem very familiar to owners of recent flagships from Huawei. The dimensions of the device are 153 x 75.65 x 7.85 mm at a weight of 165 grams. Prices for the flagship will pleasantly surprise. Version with 64 GB will cost in China about $ 200, and for a model with 128 GB of internal memory will have to pay about $ 280. Start of sales is scheduled for June 12.
