Lenovo S5 is expected to be the latest smartphone from the company that will launch on March 20. Earlier, Lenovo had announced that it will unveil its next handset from its 'S' series of smartphones. While the exact same name was not mentioned in the announcement, Lenovo's post did suggest the launch of a smartphone by the same name. Now, Lenovo has revealed some of the specifications and features of its next smartphone.
Earlier this week, Lenovo executive Chang Cheng had uploaded an invite for the launch event. Now, he has shared an image of the Lenovo S5 in a post on Weibo that showcases a Red colour variant of the smartphone. Additionally, the image also reveals features like a dual rear camera setup, a fingerprint scanner, and a metal unibody design. Interestingly, Cheng also took on Xiaomi.
Quoting a post where Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun teased Redmi Note 5's new variant which comes with features like Snapdragon 636 SoC and 6GB RAM, Cheng said that the Lenovo S5 will arrive on March 20 and will be a better smartphone than the Redmi Note 5.
Recently, Cheng had also posted photos of the alleged Lenovo S5 that showcased a reflective metal body with a curved design. The front part of the handset had pointed at a 2.5D curved glass display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Interestingly, the design appears to be similar to the Lenovo K520 that was certified by TENAA earlier. The smartphone is said to come with a 5.65-inch full-HD+ display, Snapdragon 625 SoC, 4GB RAM, Android 8.0 Oreo, and a 3000mAh battery.
It is expected that the Lenovo S5 will be launched in the company's mid-range price segment. Currently, no pricing or availability details around the handset are available, though we can expect to get more clarity as we approach the launch.
