Lenovo Z5s teaser reveals Qualcomm's Snapdragon 678 chipset and Android 9.0 Pie

The Lenovo Z5s might feature a triple camera set up with a 13 MP + 5 MP + 2 MP configuration.

After the launch of the Lenovo Z5 Pro, the company is planning to refresh its Z5 family with the new Z5s, which is expected to be launched in China on 18 December. The phone was earlier expected to be launched on 6 December.

According to a new teaser on Weibo, the Lenovo Z5s will feature Qualcomm's Snapdragon 678 chipset and will run Android 9.0 Pie.

We are not sure about the authenticity of the teaser because the Snapdragon 678 is not a platform that Qualcomm currently offers. Either the teaser is flawed, or Qualcomm might actually release the 678 along with the Lenovo Z5s.

The device is also expected to feature an in-display camera, just like the one we saw on the Galaxy A8s, which Samsung is calling the Infinity-O display. More and more people want bigger displays and hence the need for absolutely thin to no bezels. At the same time, a selfie camera is inevitable, and therefore we now have an in-display camera. (If people just give up on selfies it will be a lot easier for smartphone companies to progress!)

In terms of design, according to a poster released by Lenovo Group VP Chang Cheng, the device has a gradient design on the rear.

Not much is known about the device in terms of storage configurations, but the variants are expected to start from 6 GB of RAM.

The device might feature a triple camera set up at the back with a 13 MP primary lens, a 5 MP lens and finally a 2 MP sensor.

According to various reports, the device might launch at a price which is the equivalent of Rs 18,990.
