Lenovo Announces The World’s First 12GB RAM Smartphone


Not to be outdone by the likes of OnePlus and Vivo, Lenovo has now also announced its latest flagship that's all beastly and phenomenally spec'd.

The premium device boasts a whopping 12 GB of RAM, which follows and outpaces the footsteps of a couple of recently announced phones, the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition and Vivo Nex Dual Display, each with 10 GB of RAM.

Lenovo didn't pull any punches with the Z5 Pro GT, equipping it with as much as 512GB of onboard storage and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, ensuring flagship-level quality through and through. The only unfortunate thing is that it won't ship with a 5G radio, unlike OnePlus' forthcoming device, which is one of the only few announced phones to be powered by the newest Snapdragon processor.

Lenovo Z5 Pro GT And Z5 Pro

The Z5 Pro GT has a sibling, the Z5 Pro, and while both handsets look practically identical from afar, the red metallic frame around the former's screen does plenty enough to distinguish it, not to mention, the red rims around both main cameras and the carbon fiber pattern beneath the glass on the back.

The specs are nothing short of impressive. There's a massive 6.39-inch display on the front, with a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080. It's an AMOLED screen, too, which means it can showcase brighter and more vivid colors than a typical LCD.

On the back are 16-megapixel and 24-megapixel dual rear cameras, and there's also a dual camera system consisting of a 16-megapixel and 8-megapixel combo on the front for more dynamic selfies. A respectable 3,350 mAh battery will keep everything juiced up for several hours each day. There's also NFC and dual nano SIM slots.

Lenovo skipped the headphone jack this time. There is, however, a USB Type-C-to-headphone jack dongle included in the box.

Unfortunately, some sacrifices had to be made to keep the bezels as thin as possible. The earpiece and the front cameras are separated from the front panel via a sliding mechanism in which users will have to slide the phone to receive calls or take selfies. Even more unfortunate is the fact that the phone lacks some US-friendly LTE bands, making it impossible to use in certain regions.

In any case, pre-orders for the Lenovo Z5 Pro GT on Jan. 15, 2019. Don't count on it coming to the United States, though.
