At the Lenovo Technology Innovation Conference Tech World 2018 event last month, Group VP Chang Cheng had showcased the unannounced the Lenovo Z5 Pro smartphone that sports a manual slider design like the Xiaomi Mi MIX 3 and the upcoming Honor Magic 2. Today, Cheng has confirmed through his Weibo account that the Lenovo Z5 Pro will be made official on November 1.

The Lenovo Z5 Pro launch event will be held at the company’s global headquarters in Beijing, China. The Chinese text on the launch poster states that the Z5 Pro is coming soon, and it will be an “epochal flagship” phone.

The Lenovo Z5 Pro will be arriving as an advanced version of the Lenovo Z5, which was announced in June. A leaked video of the Z5 Pro, surfaced around two months ago, had revealed that the phone will not only be sporting a manual slider design, but also an in-screen fingerprint reader.

Previous reports have revealed that the Lenovo Z5 Pro would be equipped with a 6.5-inch AMOLED display that will support Full HD+ resolution of 2280×1440 pixels. It will likely be offering a screen-to-body ratio of 95 percent, even though the teaser says 100 percent.

The Lenovo Z5 Pro could be powered by a Snapdragon 845 chipset. It may arrive in 6GB and 8GB RAM variants. The smartphone is expected to hit the Chinese markets in multiple storage options of 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. It may include a 4,000mAh battery.

The dual camera setup on its rear is expected to feature a 20-megapixel primary sensor and a 16-megapixel secondary sensor. At the time of filing this story, there is no information available on the pricing of the Lenovo Z5 Pro.
