Lenovo Z5 Pro GT Might Be The First Phone With Snapdragon 855 SoC and 12GB RAM.


Qualcomm, a few weeks ago successfully unveiled the Snapdragon 855 SoC at an event held in Hawaii where top creators attend the session. As of now, there are no phones rocking the Snapdragon 855, although, rumors about the OnePlus 7 to be launched with the 855 have been floating around. Lenovo out of nowhere comes with its newly announced Z5 GT Pro which might as well be the first ever phone to come with the latest addition from Qualcomm.

The device packs in 12 GB RAM and a slider design which we’ve previously seen on the Oppo Find X and few Huawei devices now. The device sports a 6.39inch display with a full resolution of 2340×1080 with 95.6 percent screen-to-body ratio.

Following the footsteps of the OnePlus 6T McLaren edition, the Z5 Pro also sports a carbon fiber design at the rear and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The Z5 Pro sports a dual rear camera module with a 16MP+24MP setup and a dual LED Flash. To the front, it holds a 16MP+8MP setup for crisp selfies. It packs in a decent sized 3,350mAh battery with no news about fast charging or wireless charging. The Lenovo Z5 Pro runs on ZUI 10.0 based on Android 9 Pie.

Along with the Z5 Pro GT, the company launched a lower end version named Z5S which comes with Snapdragon 710 SoC, 6GB RAM, and 128GB storage, which according to the reports will be priced at around Rs. 15,000.

As for the pricing and availability, the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT will be available starting from January 24, 2019, priced at 4,398 Yuan for the 12GB RAM variant.
