Lenovo seems like following the footsteps of OnePlus in launching a new smartphone. The Chinese company which set the launch date as June 14 for its flagship smartphone Lenovo Z5 has already started teasing its features on microblogging portal Weibo. Chang Cheng, the Lenovo Group VP today revealed the upcoming flagship smartphone would come with 4TB of internal storage, a first in a smartphone. Earlier today, Smartistan launched a smartphone with up to 1TB of storage at a super high price of 8,848 Yuan (approx. Rs 93,000). So expect the Lenovo Z5 to be priced on the higher side as well.
At the same time, Lenovo will be forcing other manufacturers to offer more storage on their smartphones. The Lenovo Group VP did not go into specifics on which memory they’ll be using on the smartphone, but he confirmed that the device would arrive in a 4TB storage option. Earlier, Lenovo stated that the Z5 will have four technological breakthroughs which we haven’t seen in any smartphone until now.
Lenovo already confirmed that the device will feature over 95% screen-to-body ratio, only the second smartphone after Vivo APEX to achieve that insane number. Lenovo is also touting the device as a flagship smartphone, but it will not be part of the company’ sub-brand ZUK.
Furthermore, the phone is expected to offer in-display scanner, which again seems to be a de-facto option for Lenovo to achieve the near bezel-less design. Specifications of the Lenovo Z5 are yet to be revealed by the company, but being a flagship smartphone, it’s expected to carry the Snapdragon 845 SoC and up to 8GB of RAM. Hopefully, Lenovo doesn’t go beyond the 8GB of RAM mark. The exciting part will be the pricing of the smartphone, which as mentioned will be on the steeper side for sure. Also, Lenovo will launch the device in other storage options too.
