Lenovo has just released their much-anticipated smartphone, the Lenovo Z5s which seems to be more like an affordable albeit a capable version of the Lenovo Z5 Pro.
The new smartphone ships in with the Snapdragon 710 processor just like we have it in the Z5 Pro. Nevertheless, to make the cost of the new smartphone affordable, Lenovo had to subscribe to an LTPS LCD display rather than the AMOLED display.

The Lenovo Z5s features an eye-catching kind of design and features. But first, I must begin with the one that interests me the most, and it’s the back. The back of Lenovo houses a triple, vertically placed camera setup and a powerful LED flash underneath, just like we have on the Huawei P20 Pro. You will also find a fingerprint sensor positioned at the back of the Lenovo Z5s.
On the front side of this device is seated a large 6.3-inch display with Corning Gorilla Glass for protection. Lenovo was able to reduce the notch to the barest minimum, where the selfie camera. There is basically no chin below which resulted in an 83% Screen to body ratio.

While other hardware parts of this device still maintain their ancestral positions, this device still comes in various color configuration.
