Yesterday, Lenovo unveiled two new phones, the Lenovo S5 Pro and Lenovo K5 Pro. Both phones belong to the mid-range segment, though with slightly different prices but they have similar features. Both phones suit the needs of photography enthusiast, and they came with side-firing stereo speakers, and also with decently-sized batteries with fast charging capabilities. Let me show you some of the Lenovo S5 Pro features, full specification, and price.
Lenovo S5 Pro Features
The Lenovo S5 Pro delivers some notable features going by its moderate price. The phone is designed with an upscale build, and a metal unibody that has been sand-blasted for a satin finish.
The Lenovo S5 Pro comes with a 6.2 inch IPS LCD display having a resolution of 1080 pixel. The display have a notch which houses both the 20MP selfie camera with a Sony sensor and an infrared 3D face scanner. The scanner is used for security purpose, but at the same time it enhances selfies.
The 3D model is used for more advanced beautification effects as well as simulating studio lighting. It’s an IMX 476 sensor with 1.0µm pixels, which can be binned 4 in 1 for better low-light performance (the f/2.2 lens isn’t much help there).
At the back of the Lenovo S5 Pro, you will find a dual camera setup. The main shooter has a 12Mp sensor with1.25µm pixels and a bright f/1.8 aperture. The secondary module has a 2x telephoto lens (f/2.6) and a 20MP sensor. The rear camera can shoot 4K at 30fps videos, the front one is capped at 1080p. The back panel also houses a fingerprint reader, if you prefer it to face scanning.
The Lenovo S5 Pro is powered by a Snapdragon 636 chipset paired to a 6GB RAM and 64GB or 128GB internal storage. The phone have a hybrid SIM slot, which means you have to ditch one of your SIM if you want to expand the internal storage.
Talking about OS, the Lenovo S5 Pro runs on Lenovo’s ZUI software with its own brand AI. Split screen multitasking is supported and you can have up to 4 accounts for each app (even if the app itself supports only 1).
The keep the S5 Pro running for long hours, it came with a 3500mAh battery, which can be charged at 15W (though the charger included in the box is rated at 18W). Check out the full specification and price below:
