“The Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G Edition has a transparent back panel and the X50 modem, while the other features are the same as the 4G model”
Earlier this year at MWC 2019, Lenovo teased its first 5G-enabled smartphone. Today, the company has finally launched the handset as the Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G Edition at the ongoing MWC Shanghai in China. The brand’s new offering essentially has almost the same set of specs as the recently launched 4G-capable Lenovo Z6 Pro, expect that it sports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon X50 modem to offer 5G connectivity support.
The other difference between the non-5G and 5G Lenovo Z6 Pro is that the latter comes with a transparent back that shows its insides. However, as of now, it’s not clear these are actual internals or just a sticker for the same. Unfortunately, the brand hasn’t revealed anything about the pricing and availability details of the Z6 Pro 5G Edition.
Talking about the features, the Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G Edition has the next-gen in-display fingerprint sensor, PC-like liquid cooling technology, and a Time-of-Flight lens at the rear. The phone has a 6.39-inch AMOLED display with full HD+ resolution and HDR10 support. Under the hood, the handset has Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 855 SoC, aided by up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. Software-wise, the handset boots ZUI 11 that’s based on Android Pie.
At the rear, the Z6 Pro features a 48MP primary sensor, accompanied by three more cameras including a 16MP wide-angle lens, an 8MP telephoto sensor, and a 2MP depth camera. For selfies, there’s a 32MP camera. The smartphone also has a Hyper Video feature that’s a combination of hardware and software, which is claimed to capture videos with superior quality. The connectivity features include dual-band Wi-Fi, 5G LTE, dual GPS, USB Type-C, dual-SIM slots, Bluetooth 5.0, and NFC. A 4,000mAh battery with 27W fast charging support keeps the whole package alive.
As for the non-5G Lenovo Z6 Pro, the phone is available only in China at the moment at the starting price equivalent of Rs 30,000.
