Lenovo isn't quite the first name which comes to mind when we talk about flagship smartphones, but the company is eager to change that with the Lenovo Z5, its upcoming top-tier release. The company has teased an unprecedented 95 per cent screen-to-body ratio and 45 days of standby battery life for the Z5.
Lenovo VP Chang Cheng has been continuously teasing the upcoming smartphone on Weibo and we have to admit, the device certainly looks pretty formidable on paper.
We have a fair idea about how the front of the device will look from the design sketch and initial press renders of the device posted by Cheng. The device seems all-screen in the first look and Cheng confirmed that the Z5 will come with a 95 per cent screen-to-body ratio. It will be bigger than any bezel-less displays in the market currently. To put it into context, flagships like Apple iPhone X, Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+ or the LG G7 ThinQ maxes out around 85 per cent screen-to-body ratio.
But that's not where the innovations end. In multiple posts, Cheng revealed that the device will come with 4TB of storage, capable of storing around 2,000 HD movies or 1,50,000 music files or a whopping 1 million photographs. That's quite outstanding, considering the industry standard currently is 64GB to 256GB for flagships.

Another interesting Z5 feature Cheng advertised on Weibo was 45 days of battery life on standby.

Cheng had earlier posted several photo samples from the Z5 on Weibo. The device will feature a dual-camera setup on the back with AI-powered features like Portrait and Bokeh modes. And the initial sample images are pretty impressive.

According to rumours, the Z5 will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Soc — the same chip found in current Android flagships such as Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, LG G7 ThinQ, OnePlus 6 and others. The device is expected to be unveiled on June 14 and if trends are anything to go by, may be priced similarly to the budget flagship OnePlus 6.
