Lenovo has just launched its latest smartphone in the market, the Lenovo S5 Pro. The company announced the device at a launch event in China, and it is unclear if or when the company plans to launch it in other countries. The device is a variant of the Lenovo S5 that the company launched back in March in the Chinese market. Lenovo has priced the device at RMB 1,398 which amounts to Rs 14,800 at the time of writing. The device will go on sale starting October 23. This means that this device is meant to compete in the mid-range segment in the Chinese market.
Lenovo S5 Pro Specifications
The Lenovo S5 Pro comes with a 6.2-inch LCD display with FHD+ resolution, and that infamous notch. According to the announcement, the notch places an advanced 3D facial recognition system which is likely to make the Face Unlock feature more secure than conventional setups. As reported by MSP, Lenovo has opted for an aluminum metal unibody in terms of the looks of the device and build. The metal back gives the device a premium finish and look, and interested buyers can get it in three colors that include Black, Ice Blue, and Pure Gold.

The device is powered by a Snapdragon 636 SoC along with 6GB RAM and 64GB expandable internal storage. Moving to the camera specifications of the device, the device comes with a dual camera setup on the back with a 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 12-megapixel secondary sensor with a telephoto lens. In addition to the back camera, the front also sports a dual camera setup with a 20-megapixel primary sensor and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor. The front also comes with an IR camera along with other sensors.
The S5 Pro is backed by a 3,500mAh battery that supports fast charging. In terms of software, the device runs Android 8.1 Oreo-based ZUI out-of-the-box. Lenovo has also added a fingerprint scanner on the back.
Lenovo did not announce any details about international availability. It is likely that we may not see the device in India as this is not the first device that has launched, and then remained exclusive to the Chinese market in the recent past.
