Back in December last year, Lenovo officially announced the Z5 Pro GT in China alongside the Lenovo Z5s. The major difference between the two phones though was the fact that the Z5 Pro GT was promised to arrive with Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855 SoC.
The smartphone was showcased for the first time at CES earlier this month and though it's not out for sale to the general public just yet, the phone is already beginning to make headlines for its AnTuTu scores.
A Lenovo Z5 Pro GT with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB was said to have been benchmarked on the platform, returning a score of 371,273 — the highest score on the benchmark. If you're wondering, then yes. The score is higher than that achieved by the Apple iPhone XS Max.
Notably, the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is one of the first devices to carry Qualcomm's latest flagship SoC, the Snapdragon 855 which is fabricated on a 7 nm process. Unlike several smartphones that blatantly adopted the notch-style display, the Lenovo phone offers a notch-free all-screen panel. The phone has a screen-to-body ratio of 95 percent. Interestingly, the Z5 Pro GT comes with a slider that pops the up the front camera quite similar to the one seen on Xiaomi Mi Mix 3.
In terms of other core specifications, the Z5 Pro GT features a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display panel from Samsung. On the camera front, the phone comes with a quad camera setup having two sensors up front and two sensors at the back. On the front, it sports a 16 MP + 8 MP set up while at the back has a 16 MP + 24 MP camera. In terms of software, Lenovo Z5 Pro GT runs the custom ZUI 10.0 based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone is powered by a 3,350mAh battery. If one recalls, the Z5 Pro GT was launched in China for a price starting at CNY 2,698 (roughly Rs 28,000).
Following the Lenovo Z2 Plus release in 2016, the Chinese OEM hasn't launched any flagship smartphone. But with the Z5 Pro GT Lenovo might regain its lost charm in the smartphone market. But while the Chinese smartphone maker is accessing its situation in the Indian smartphone market it remains to be seen whether Lenovo will bring this impressive smartphone to India.
