Earlier today we talked about the launch of Lenovo’s new phone, the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT. However, it’s also worth noting that for some of the interested buyers out there who would like to own a phone in the mid-range, the new Z5 Pro GT does not make a lot of sense, but, worry not, since Lenovo has also launched another phone side by side this time which is the Lenovo Z5s. The phone comes with a mid-range price tag and offers some interesting quirks on board like the rear triple camera setup and beautiful design. So, without further ado, let’s read ahead to know more about what the new Lenovo Z5s has in store to offer.
