Lenovo recently released a poster on Chinese microblogging site Weibo to announce its plans of unveiling the Z5s in the country on December 06. However, no launch event actually took place in China yesterday. While Lenovo has not revealed a reason for the last minute cancellation, it has released a new poster that reveals the new launch date.
Lenovo Z5s to Launch in China on December 18
If Lenovo had not cancelled the Z5s launch event on December 06, it would have become the first Android OEM to release a smartphone with an in-display selfie camera. Now that the Z5s will be launched in China only on December 18, the smartphone will be the third Android smartphone to feature a circular cutout in the display. Samsung is set to launch the Galaxy A8s with an Infinity-O Display in China on December 11, while Huawei will be unveiling the Nova 4 in China on December 17. The Nova 4 is also rumored to make its global debut as the Honor View 20 on January 22.
Lenovo Z5s is expected to sport a 6.3-inch Full HD+ display with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Under the hood, it could be powered by an 11nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 octa-core processor clocked at up to 2.0 GHz. Some other rumors, however, claim the smartphone will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset instead. In terms of memory, we can expect the smartphone to be available with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
As you can see in the new launch poster above, the Lenovo Z5s will sport triple rear cameras on the back. More specific details regarding the rear cameras, however, are yet to surface online. The smartphone will be fueled by a 3210mAh capacity non-removable battery and is likely to include fast charging support as well. Rest of the smartphone’s key specifications remain a mystery at this point. However, we expect some more details regarding the Z5s to leak online in the coming days. In terms of software, the Lenovo Z5s is expected to ship with Android 8.1 Oreo-based ZUI 10.
