Lenovo had an event today where its first triple camera phone, Lenovo Z5s, was introduced. Rumors suggested it will have “more than 8 GB RAM”, but apparently the company had a bigger surprise. It is called Lenovo Z5 Pro GT and is the first smartphone with Snapdragon 855 chipset and 12 GB RAM
Since the phone is all about speed, it has racing vibes in the design as well. The back panel is glass with a pattern imitating carbon, while red accents were added to the rim of the top side, the main camera sensors, and the bottom half of the slider.
Other specs of the phone remain unchanged from the vanilla Lenovo Z5 Pro – 6.4” Super AMOLED display with a fingerprint scanner underneath, sliding mechanism, hiding the 16 MP + 8 MP dual selfie camera setup, while the main shooters are 16 MP primary lens and 24 MP secondary sensor.
There are three variants with three price tags – 6/128 GB for CNY2,698 ($390/€340), 8/256 GB for CNY3,398 or $500/€440, and the most powerful one with 12 GB RAM and 512 GB storage costs CNY4,398 or about $650/€560. Pre-order begins on January 15, while official market launch is scheduled for January 24.
