Lenovo Z5 to be announced on June 5, promises 45-day standby time, bezel-less design

UPDATE: Upon further investigation, the 4TB internal storage claim seems to be a mere speculation meant to raise the hype around Lenovo's upcoming smartphone. It's true that Lenovo might eventually offer 4TB storage to those who buy the Z5, but it could be in the form of cloud storage or something else that we haven't thought of. For the moment, it's hard to believe that a smartphone could offer such a huge amount of internal memory, but we've already contacted Lenovo and we'll update if necessary.

Lenovo Z5 may be one of the most exciting smartphones to make its way to the market in the first half of the year. The Chinese company teased its upcoming flagship in the last couple of weeks saying that the Z5 will offer four technological breakthroughs and hardware based on 18 patented technologies.

Earlier today, Lenovo's VP confirmed the Z5 will be introduced on June 5. Furthermore, the smartphone is supposed to offer no less than 4TB of internal memory (yes, this is not a typo), and up to 45-day of standby time (also not a typo).

Not to mention that Lenovo says the Z5 will feature a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio, an impressive feat even by today's standards. But that's not all, as Lenovo claims its phone can still offer users a talk time of half an hour after the battery reaches zero percent.

The rest of the phone's specs are shrouded in mystery but come June 5, we'll find out more about Lenovo's first truly innovative smartphone, or at least the company's most impressive achievement in the smartphone industry.

Still probably true, but they'll name it Z5 Premium and sell it for $2000. While the normal Z5 is just an average 2018's flagships.. But that 4TB still to big, it's like cramming 8x512GB NAND flash inside a phone :-/

I think $2000 is justified if it's real and other hardware are beast.

So what, my old Nexus 5 could do 45 days of standby, with no SIM and zero screen on time, as I just let it sit there unused lol.

and so this is the phone i have my highest hopes set on. But I doubt it will be for me because I'm willing to wager it'll be nearly the size of a 7 inch tablet.
