Along with the Lenovo Z5s we’ve seen earlier today, the Chinese tech giant also announced an upgraded variant of their previously launched Z5 Pro: meet the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT!
Lenovo’s Z5 Pro GT is basically a beefed up Z5 Pro with its main and only real difference being the CPU under the hood. The GT version does indeed pack a next gen Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 CPU which will definitely be a big upgrade over the Snapdragon 710 of the Non-GT variant. This change will bring a 7nm process based CPU with a max clock of 2.84Ghz that will – according to Lenovo – bring a 45% increase in CPU speed, 20% in graphics performance, with an Antutu score of 368,480 points. We’ll then find up to 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of internal storage.
The new Lenovo Z5 Pro GT comes with the same camera setup of the original Z5 Pro, meaning a 16MP + 24MP combo on the back and a 16MP selfie snapper at front. We all know how that ended up working for the phone (review below), but hopefully the Snapdragon 855 with its Spectra 380 ISP technology will be able to take better advantage of the good sensors.
The smartphone will sport the same 6.39-inch AMOLED display, it’ll be powered by a 3350mAh capacity battery, run ZUI 10 based on Android Oreo and pack a under-display fingerprint scanner. Finally, the only other difference from the predecessor will be the design which is now more aggressive with a carbon fiber-like back cover and red accents in the slider below the display and around the cameras.
The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT will be available starting on January 24th at the price of 2698 Yuan ($390), at least in China.
