We all know Lenovo owns and sells Moto phones here in the states. But many don’t know that Lenovo also sells its own branded phones overseas, mostly in China. The company has just taken the wraps off the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT which houses 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is also a slider phone, housing the front facing camera and call speaker behind the display.
Lenovo announced the Z5 Pro a few months ago but that device housed mid-range specs. The GT will not only have beefy RAM and storage but will also be one of the few phones sporting the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. Engadget reports that there will be no 5G included on this device, but that’s not a huge deal. 5G is still in its infancy and not really adopted widely yet.
Both Z5 phones like similar but aside from their specs differences the atheistic difference are the red metal frame, red accents on the cameras, and carbon fiber under the glass back on the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT. Included in the specs here are a 6.39″ AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080, dual cameras on front and back (16MP/8MP and 24MP/16MP respectively). There’s also NFC, dual nano SIM slots, USB-C port, and a large 3,350mAh battery.
But before you get too excited, the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT is likely not going to work very well here in the United States. As with most phones made for the Chinese market, the GT will lack many bands used here in the States. It will probably work fine on 3G and HSPA+ bands but you likely won’t get LTE here.
For readers who are in a market that this is usable in the Z5 Pro GT will be available for pre-order January 15th, 2019. Pricing is said to be 2,698 yuan ($390USD) for the 6GB RAM/128GB storage variant. The top model will cost 4,398 yuan ($640USD) for 12GB RAM/512GB storage.
