Lenovo Launches its First 5G Ready Phone

Lenovo Z6 Pro, unveiled in April this year, is one of the best flagships released in 2019. But, it did not come with a 5G modem, considering 5G is the future, this was a turn off for many. However, Lenovo decided to change that and has released a 5G variant of this beast at the ongoing Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Shanghai.

Under the hood, we don’t see any changes except for the Qualcomm Snapdragon X50 5G modem chip that takes care of connectivity. The rest of the features are similar to its non-5G sibling.

To differentiate the two variants from each other, Lenovo went with a transparent back for the 5G variant. However, we are unsure if it shows the actual internals of the phone or if it’s just a sticker like on the Xiaomi Mi 8 Explorer Edition.

Pricing and availability of this new variant are not known yet.


The phone features a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED display and is powered by a Snapdragon 855 SoC along with Snapdragon X50 5G modem topped with an Adreno 640 GPU. It comes with 12 GB RAM accompanies by 512 GB of built-in memory. You won’t be needing a memory card for this phone any time soon.

Camera wise, Lenovo Z6 Pro 5G edition features a quad-sensor camera with a 48 MP main camera paired with a 16 MP wide-angle lens, an 8 MP shooter, and a 2 MP depth sensor. For selfies, it has a 32 MP single sensor snapper.

The whole package is fueled by 4000 mAh battery backed by 27W fast charging.
