Anonymous, 20 Apr 2019What is the definition of barrel distortion and banding?Barrel distortion:
a type of defect in optical or electronic images in which vertical or horizontal straight lines appear as convex curves.
Most cameras adjust for their barrel distortion when producing jpegs, and photo suites also has correct compensation for "any" given lens.
Banding, also called false contouring or posterization, refers to unrealistic solid strips of color in areas that should display a smooth transition
Banding is an obvious issue in many of the sample photos.
Photos look good enough for a properly priced flagship (if it will cost as low as Xiaomi Mi 9 which is unlikely :().
These night samples (i hope i am wrong though) i am not sure they came out from a mobile phone in general... even we see a low resolution and not the original sample...
this is awesome. congrats lenovo for implementing 100mp successful. huawei fans in here will be feel guilt again. your shoots at night is very superb super natural not like the huawei give filters to see like you see the stars lol
They are using 3 main camera to take panorama in one shot. So more than 100mp
Another gimmick by Lienovo. They already start building up all the hype now only to destroy it on launch day.

Lenovo's only recent screw-up was the false Z5 ads. They certainly made up for that with their Z5 Pro & Z5 Pro GT. I certainly have newfound faith in them. Let's hope they deliver. For the sake of competition & variety!
"however they seem to pack quite some details"
Probably would pack even more details if the samples were not 0.6 MP...
I'm guessing they had to shrink the photos from 48 or 100MP to 0.6MP to hide the poor quality.
Knowing Lenovo, those pictures were not taken with a Lenovo phone.
