Lenovo Z5 Pro: Design

Lenovo Z5 Pro is made in the now popular slider format. This is only the fourth device in the world with a sliding top panel: only Oppo Find X, Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 and Honor Magic 2 are ahead of it.

The device has dimensions: length 155.12 mm, width 73.04 mm and thickness 9.3 mm. It weighs – 210 grams. The back of the phone is made of glass curved on all four sides. For the slider mechanism, the Chinese manufacturer used six springs with a double helix.

Thanks to this design, we get an almost completely frameless 6.39-inch screen without any visors. Only the black chin is waiting for us from below, but it is quite narrow – only 2 mm.

On the panel itself, which comes out from under the display, there are two front-facing cameras, a proximity sensor, an infrared sensor, and an infrared light. It does not specify what kind of scanning is used, but given the device’s belonging to the middle segment, it is hardly worth waiting for 3D technologies. A fingerprint scanner is also here, and it is located right on the screen – an unexpected feature for the average person.

Behind us, we are waiting for a classic design with a vertical window of cameras (there are also two of them: 16 and 24 megapixels), a flash and a company logo. The back is glossy, and is available only in black – the manufacturer does not say anything about other colors. Therefore, to buy a Lenovo Z5 Pro in a bright case will not work.

Lenovo Z5 Pro: Screen

Lenovo Z5 Pro is equipped with a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display from Samsung, characterized by a resolution of (Full HD +) 2340 x 1080 pixels.

The screen is surrounded by 2.07 mm thin frames. Lenovo representatives said the Z5 Pro is offering a 95.06 percent screen-to-front panel ratio and 19.5: 9 aspect ratio.

The AMOLED display, which supports HDR 10, incorporates a fifth-generation photoelectric fingerprint sensor.

Lenovo Z5 Pro: Performance

The smartphone is built on the basis of the new high-performance chipset Snapdragon 710 AIE. The chip is manufactured using a 10 nm technological process (10 nm LPP) and incorporates the Adreno 600 Series GPU – Adreno 616. This is the first non-flagship platform that uses the flagship line GPU.

Building clusters in Snapdragon 710 is a peculiar one. Instead of a bundle of four high-performance and four energy-efficient cores, two high-performance (ARM Cortex-A75, up to 2.2 GHz) and six energy-efficient (ARM Cortex-A55, up to 1.7 GHz) is used.

The smartphone has received 6 GB of RAM, complete with 64 GB or 128 G of internal storage, depending on the version of the device. No memory card slot available.

The device is running a home platform ZUI 10.0, based on OS Android 8 Oreo.

The Lenovo Z5 Pro supports dual SIM cards, Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 4G VoLTE, 2 × 2 MIMO, GPS, NFC, and USB-C.

The smartphone supports Dolby Atmos surround sound technology, which provides excellent sound quality. The device does not have a 3.5mm audio jack; it uses a Lenovo Air wireless Bluetooth headset.

In addition, a 3.5 mm / USB-C adapter is included with the device. Chip IntelliGo AI, present on the device, can significantly reduce the level of extraneous noise during phone calls.

There is an AI game acceleration mode that can accelerate the processor and graphics accelerator, as well as improve memory performance during games on the device.

To protect sensitive data, manufacturers have installed a security chip in the device.

 Lenovo Z5 Pro: Camera

There are four cameras here: two on each side.

The Z5 Pro has AI capabilities for capturing high-quality selfie images (correction of skin blemishes), and also supports face recognition using infrared illumination and a sensor. The latter function is used to unlock the phone in low light conditions.

The main block is a 16-megapixel camera with a Sony IMX519 sensor and an f / 1.8 aperture and a 24 megapixel Sony IMX576, which can assemble pixels into clusters of four to improve the quality of night shots.

The camera is equipped with phase autofocus and dual-tone LED flash.
