Lenovo Z5 disappoints: revealed with display notch and Snapdragon 636
by Joshua Swingle / Jun 05, 2018, 4:17 AM
Specifically, the Lenovo Z5 boasts a 6.2-inch display with a 1080p resolution and, despite the top and bottom bezel situation, the Chinese company still boasted that the side bezels are thinner than those featured on the iPhone X and Xiaomi Mi 8 – the notch isn't as big either. As an added extra, many of you may remember the rumored 95% screen-to-body ratio. Well, in actual fact, Lenovo is now claiming 90%. Turning the phone over, the Z5 follows the recent dual-camera trend, by including two 16-megapixel sensors on the rear that are enhanced through AI technology. Also, in terms of the selfie lens, Lenovo has included an 8-megapixel lens.
Moving on to the internal side of things, an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 is present. This is then coupled with 6GB of RAM and the choice of either 64GB or 128GB of internal storage. But, what happened to the 4TB of storage? You may be asking. Well, turns out it was just a regular desktop hard disk that was announced alongside the phone. On an extra note, Lenovo has revealed that the device will eventually be upgraded to Android P – It runs Android 8.1 Oreo straight out of the box – while a 3,300mAh battery is also included.
For those of you who may still be interested in the Lenovo Z5, it’s worth noting that sales commence on June 12 in China, with the 64GB model costing $200 and the 128GB alternative setting customers back $280. However, when it comes to an international release, Lenovo is yet to specify any details.

I quote: "...the Lenovo Z5 boasts a 6.2-inch display with a 1920 x 1080p resolution". 1920x1080p? The display doesn't look like its 16:9, I'm afraid! More like 19:9 or even 19.5:9! In any case; Snapdragon 636 paired with 4 Gigs of RAM for mere $200 would've made it a GREAT phone but alas... Ah, whatever! G'Day!

If that "chin" was actually moved to the top as a "forehead" and used to house the sensors, earpiece and camera - JOB DONE!

Unfortunately, that's not possible. You see, the chin houses the display ribbon cable and other things like the cables for the type C port. You can technically have it on top, but that will cause the same jelly scrolling a la oneplus 5.

That chin is actually really small. If you compare with iPhone X, it might be about the same. The reason it doesn't stick out on the X is because they have made all the bezels thicker to match. I'm not saying they are justified, just saying that it's not that bad.

The problem is that the marketing pictures of the Z5 don't actually match the reality...you can see the real phone on other sites and the side bezels are way thicker and the chin is larger. LMAO, they go all the way with their lies ! :)

You must have a really poor eyesight to believe that chin is as small as iPhone X. Go check out hands on images and videos of this phone. These are as fake as Z5 promises and Lenovo company itself.
