Lenovo’s first attempt at devices with three cameras on the back is called Lenovo Z5s. The device is a more affordable version of the Lenovo Z5 Pro, but more powerful than the six-month-old Lenovo Z5. It is also the first phone from the manufacturer with a waterdrop notch for the selfie camera.
As expected, the chipset is Snapdragon 710 with octa-core CPU and Adreno 616 GPU. There are three memory combinations - 4/64 GB, 6/64 GB, and 6/128 GB. The screen is a 6.3 LTPS LCD with Full HD+ resolution and tall 19.5:9 ratio. The tiny notch on the front houses a 16 MP shooter with Face Unlock and some pixel binding technology for sharper photos.
When talking about cameras, the back is where it gets interesting on the Lenovo Z5s. It brings a 16 MP wide-angle lens, acting as the primary snapper. The secondary is a telephoto lens with 8 MP sensor and 2x optical zoom, while the third one is a 5 MP depth-sensing shooter for background blur and portrait photos. Other specs include PDAF, 4K video recording and there is a dual LED flash for good measure.
Although the phone has Android Oreo as a base, the user interface is ZUI 10. Battery capacity is 3,300 mAh with USB-C and 15W charging, while connectivity has all the necessary certificates - Bluetooth 5.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac.
The Lenovo Z5s is available in Starry Gray, Titanium Crystal Blue (actually Purple) and Honey Love Orange colors. The first is available only with 4/64 GB storage for CNY1,398, the 6/64 GB variant can be purchased in all three of them.
Sadly, the 6/128 GB is only with the Orange back and is Limited Edition with an autograph of the Chinese actor Zhu Yilong. All versions are up for pre-order, actual sales are starting on December 24.
Taobao is Chinese exclusive marketplace, isn't it? I'm not Chinese so I dont talk about something that's not affordable for me.
Aliexpress is just an online marketplace and each seller is free to sell his goods for whatever price he or she wants. Lenovo has nothing to do with a seller's extra cut. You're better off ordering from Taobao (A Chinese-exclusive marketplace) or Jin...
This is a sweet phone. Lenovo is out to beat the competition.
