Lenovo Z5 REVEALED - but it’s NOT the Android smartphone you were hoping

In the run up to the big reveal fans were sent into overdrive with teases looking like the Lenovo Z5 could be the first ever all-screen phone.

Lenovo has introduced two new budget phones dubbed as the Lenovo K5 Note and Lenovo A5 in China. Additionally, he hinted at the phone having an unheard of 4TB of storage, but that didn't happen either.

The good news is, with the notch in place, the front camera and other sensors need not be placed at the bottom bezel. The Lenovo Z5 has a 6.2 inch 19:9 aspect ratio 1080p display with a notch up top.

There isn't anything unique regarding the design. Still, that doesn't forgive Chang Cheng, the Vice President of Lenovo, for teasing a smartphone without the notch that he had to have known was going to be there. The front looks exactly similar to the OnePlus 6 and even the size of the notch is same. All pretty standard specs for a 2018 mid-range device.

For now, there is no information regarding the launch of the Lenovo Z5, K5 Note, and the A5 in India.

Instead of 4 Terabytes of storage, the Lenovo Z5 comes in 64 GB and 128 GB storage variants.

No injuries from London hotel fire yet reported
Penelope Evans, 50, from Battersea in south London , was leaving Harrods when she noticed the blaze. There were hundreds of fire engines, ambulances, police racing by and helicopters overhead.

This could be closer to the bezel-less, all-screen dream that fans had hoped the Lenovo Z5 would make a reality. Under the hood is the 14nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 octa-core processor coupled with Adreno 509 GPU and 6GB of RAM.

In terms of optics, the Lenovo Z5 features a vertically stacked 16MP+8MP dual rear camera setup. The company talked about AI capabilities in both the cameras.

On the camera front, it features a 13-megapixel rear sensor with LED flash, while for the front, there is an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling. On either variant, you'll also get a 3,300 mAh battery with fast charging, and the phone is available in multiple colors including the gradient "Aurora". The device runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with ZUI 3.9 running on top of it. With this launch, it is again clear that you shouldn't blindly believe any rumour about an upcoming phone.

The company has launched the Lenovo Z5 in two storage models featuring 64GB and 128GB.

Lenovo sure managed to generate nearly unprecedented buzz for an own-brand smartphone with some provocative, tantalizing and ultimately misleading teasers in anticipation of today's domestic Z5 launch.
