Lenovo has recently unveiled its latest smartphone, Lenovo Z5 Pro GT and it’s the world’s first phone to be announced with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 SoC. Another major highlight of this smartphone is that it offers up to 12GB of RAM. Earlier this month, the new Snapdragon 855 SoC was launched with a Snapdragon X50 modem to enable 5G connectivity and after the announcement, the companies such as OnePlus and Sony were so far expected to bring its processing power to the masses. Alongside the new 7nm Qualcomm chip, the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT has up to 12GB of RAM option. This smartphone also runs Android Pie on top of Lenovo’s ZUI 10 out-of-the-box.
However, there isn’t any notch at the front to contain the selfie camera. Instead, the phone has a slider design that brings the selfie camera with a slide. The slider part also houses a system to enable infrared (IR) based face unlock functionality. This sliding structure uses six parallel slides, double-helical structure, and AI smart antennas. The antennas are touted to intelligently detect the position of the user’s hand grip to dynamically adjust the signal.
