Lenovo Z5 Will Have A World-First 4TB Of Onboard Storage
Lenovo is really going all out with the new flagship smartphone. The company has already teased that the Lenovo Z5 could be the first smartphone to offer a 95% screen-to-body ratio. For context, the iPhone X as an 81.1% screen-to-body ratio. Lenovo VP Chang Cheng has been active on his Weibo account recently, teasing different aspects of the soon to be launched Android smartphone.
In his latest post, Chang claims that the Lenovo Z5 will have a massive 4TB onboard storage. This is an extremely bold claim and we will wait before we jump the gun here. This could very well be a vague reference to cloud storage that Lenovo will provide with the Z5. In his post, he claims that this was possible thanks to “particle technology” and this amount of storage can hold 2000 HD movies, 150,000 lossless music files, and 1 million photos.
A few days ago, Lenovo’s Vice President Chang Cheng shared a teaser image of the company’s upcoming flagship device on his Weibo page. The image revealed the top-left side of the smartphone which hinted at the fact that the device won’t have a notch. The bezels were also extremely thin. He then posted a sketch of the smartphone which revealed extremely thin uniform bezels around the display. Cheng has again posted a teaser of the Lenovo Z5, revealing the bottom half of the smartphone.
There are rumours that the smartphone will have a flip-up front camera, something we saw at MWC 2018. The fingerprint sensor could have easily been placed at the back but, rumours claim the smartphone will have an in-display fingerprint sensor. However, considering how expensive that tech still is, we expect a rear-mounted fingerprint reader on the Lenovo Z5. The sketch also revealed the USB C port located at the bottom while the headphone jack is missing. It is possible that the company could place it on the top but, considering the industry-wide trend, we could see headphone jack-less Lenovo Z5.
Bit by bit, the Lenovo Z5 is being introduced to the world, and so far, the details look promising. The launch is set for June 14th and it’ll be interesting to see if this device will ever make its way outside China.
