Lenovo Z5 Pro GT features 12GB of RAM, SD 855, hidden front-facing cameras


Say hello to the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT. The phone itself isn’t much to look at, but its internals are really what we should be focusing on. The device is the world’s first smartphone to sport a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and it’s also the world’s first smartphone with 12GB of RAM. But that’s not all. The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is built with a sliding display which hides two front-facing cameras which means you get a true edge-to-edge display which isn’t marred by a notch or punch-hole. 

The other specifications of the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT include a 6.39-inch 2,340 x 1,080 AMOLED display, 512GB of storage, 16MP + 24MP dual cameras on the back, 16MP + 8MP (infrared) cameras on the front, 3,350mAh battery, dual nano SIM slots, USB-C port and NFC. 

Lenovo Z Pro GT pricing and availability

Despite the late-2018 announcement, the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT doesn’t actually go on sale until the end of January 2019. Lenovo will be selling the base models of the Z5 Pro GT (6GB of RAM, 128GB of storage) for 2,698 yuan ($390 USD) and the top of the line model with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage for 4,398 yuan ($640 USD). Pre-orders will begin on January 15th and the device will officially go on sale January 24th in China. Lenovo plans on bringing the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT to other Asian and European markets, but there’s little chance tht it will make it to North America.
