Lenovo wants to put itself in the map.

Right when 2018 slowly hushes to a close, Lenovo pulls out its trump card and launches the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT—a specced out boundary-pushing beast of a smartphone that other OEMs will have a hard time following through.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT.


Let’s get this out of the way: Lenovo wants your attention. And by dropping a Snapdragon 855-powered smartphone on us, it’s doing a stellar job. It’s vying against Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 to be the first smartphone to rock Qualcomm’s fastest processor yet.

Inside the device is an unheard-of 12GB RAM and 512GB internal storage combo, giving the few 10GB RAM smartphones a serious run for their money. Of course, there’s always the argument that 12GB RAM is rather excessive for a smartphone, but it’s nice to know that technology is so far in-advance in terms of computing power.

The Z5 Pro GT’s rear camera is a typical dual setup (24-megapixel + 16-megapixel, f/1.8). But what sets it apart is its front-facing camera setup, which is tucked neatly under its mechanical slider. That affords the smartphone the luxury of a truly bezel-less experience, with a 95.06% screen-to-body ratio.
