Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G Edition Announced At MWC Shanghai 2019

Lenovo had unveiled the Z6 Pro in China back in April this year. Now at the ongoing MWC Shanghai, the company has announced a 5G variant of the device. The Z6 Pro is a flagship offering and the successor to the Lenovo Z5 Pro. 

The processor on the Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G Edition is supplemented by an external Snapdragon X50 modem to enable 5G connectivity. The 5G Edition also comes with a transparent back, but it is unclear whether it is actually transparent or an illustrative sticker like the Xiaomi Mi 9 Explorer.  

There’s not much difference between the 5G Edition and regular edition when it comes to core specifications. The device sports a 6.39-inch AMOLED display offering FHD+ resolution. The display is integrated with a sixth-generation in-screen fingerprint scanner and bears a waterdrop notch on the top. 

Under the hood, the Z6 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset based on 7nm architecture. It is available in three variants with of up to 12GB RAM and 512GB internal storage. The device is backed by a 4,000mAh battery with support for 27W fast charging. It is also equipped with a liquid cooling system that aids in dissipating heat during longer gaming sessions. 

On the optics front, the Z6 Pro sports a quad-camera setup. The module comprises of a 48MP main camera, 16MP ultra-wide angle lens, 8MP telephoto sensor, and 2MP super video camera. The device features a 32MP selfie snapper up front with support for AI face recognition. 

Pricing and availability details of the Lenovo Z6 Pro are not known yet. The price of base variant of the regular Z6 Pro starts at 2,899 Yuan (~Rs 30,000) and goes up to 4,999 Yuan (~Rs 51,800) for the top-end model. We expect the 5G Edition to be priced higher than the regular edition.
