The Beijing-based electronics manufacturer Lenovo has introduced a new phone with a copious amount of power and storage — The Lenovo Z5 Pro GT. It’s equipped with 12GB of RAM, 512 GB of storage, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. The new Snapdragon 855 chip is a flagship model built for multi-gigabit 5G connectivity and overall performance enhancements.
Despite that, it doesn’t look like the phone will support 5G. This isn’t surprising, as the implementation of 5G is delayed in some other phones (like the iPhone) for 2019. Samsung, Huawei (although banned in some regions such as Australia), and OnePlus are offering some models with 5G.
The 12GB of RAM offered is enormous. However, if you’re like me and want more apps than your phone’s RAM can comfortably accommodate, maybe 12GB isn’t overkill. 12GB of RAM on Android sounds like a (hefty) leap in the right direction, as there are millions of apps out there. Many of which are tempting.
The Z5 Pro GT also introduces a slide out camera instead of the notch you’ll see in some other phones (not necessarily better, though) and is pretty much entirely a screen at the front (virtually no bezel).
