After various rumors, leaks, and teasers, China-based Lenovo has finally launched its flagship smartphone at a launch event in China — Lenovo Z6 Pro.
The smartphone comes with a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display with a tiny waterdrop notch on the top. It comes with support for DC dimming and HDR 10. From the renders, it seems that the phone comes with pretty thin bezels but we’ll wait for the real-life photos before to pass judgment on this, given the company’s history.
It also comes with an in-display fingerprint sensor which the company claims have increased fingerprint recognition area, faster unlock support, and ability to even detect wet fingers. The phone also comes with support for Face Unlock feature.
Under the hood, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 855 octa-core processor along with Adreno 640 GPU. The company has added a PC-grade Coldfront liquid cooling system for better heat dissipation and management.
The 6 GB RAM and 8 GB RAM variant comes with 128 GB of internal storage while the 12 GB RAM model packs 512 GB of internal storage. For an optimized gaming experience, the phone also features Game Turbo game acceleration.
As for the optics, the smartphone comes with four camera sensors on the back, as expected. It features a 48 MP primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, a 16 MP super wide-angle lens with 125-degree field-of-view, an 8 MP telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture and a 2 MP super video camera with f/1.8 aperture, 2.9micron pixel size, and 6-axis OIS.
It comes with features like super night scene mode, super-macro images up to 2.39 through a super wide-angle lens, Hyper Video and Double View Vlog. On the front side, the device comes equipped with 32 MP AI selfie camera with f/2.0 aperture.
