Lenovo's Z5 won't be the world's first all-screen phone after all

Lenovo's Z5 won't be the world's first all-screen phone after all

But the phone has turned out to be very different from what was teased by the company and extrapolated by concept creators.

Both the K5 Note and the A5 have been launched in China. Lenovo A5 comes with 3GB RAM with either 16GB or 32GB storage. Rs. 10,490) for the 4GB RAM+64GB storage version. It features a 6.2-inch full HD+ 2.5D curved glass display with DCI-P3 color gamut, a resolution of 2246 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9.

Elsewhere, the Z5 features an unspecified Qualcomm octa-core processor and 16-megapixel dual cameras. It supports expandable storage via microSD card (up to 256GB). It also runs ZUI 3.9 out-of-the-box which is based on Android 8.1 Oreo. Notably, the K5 Note is upgradable to Android P. It has a 16MP primary sensor with an f/2.0 aperture and an 8MP secondary sensor. The display, which covers 90 percent of the smartphone's face, comes with a notch at the top that houses the earpiece and front-facing camera. The fingerprint sensor is mounted at the back below the dual camera setup. While the dual SIM card can be found on the left edge, the volume rocker and textured power button are placed on the right edge. A 3760mAh battery backs the device. The phone measures 8.5mm in thickness and weighs 176grams.

We can chalk it up to "marketing tactics" if we want, but now we know that Lenovo is currently unable to create an all screen smartphone. Concerning software, the phone runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based ZUI 3.9.

Lenovo A5 gets a single 13MP camera sensor at the back with f/2.2 aperture, autofocus and LED flash.

It looks like Lenovo has chosen to forgo that route and it honestly makes sense. Measuring 153x75.65x7.85mm, the smartphone offers 4G, VoLTE, 3G, Wi-FI, Bluetooth, GPS and USB Type C as connectivity options. The device is backed by a 4000mAh battery. It is possible that the company is planning to introduce another Z5 handset soon (even though that's not as likely), so that the company can justify all those teasers, but until then, let's take a look at the Lenovo Z5. However, we can expect Lenovo to bring the K5 Note and the A5 to the Indian market as they conform to the budget segment, which is now brimming with a slew of smartphones launched by Xiaomi and other Chinese manufacturers.
