Lenovo S5 with dual rear cameras launching on March 20

Given the increasing popularity of Redmi note phones, every other smartphone company is had now pulled up a sock to beat the competition. Lenovo has recently announced its redmi note 5-killer. It will be launching a new smartphone, dubbed as Lenovo S5, on March 20 in China.

Lenovo CEO Chang Cheng shared an image of the upcoming release, which is similar to Lenovo K520 which we had earlier seen on TENAA.
It’s clearly an 18:9 display and there is a front-facing camera along with earpiece at the top, while on the right, there is a volume rocker and power on/off buttons. Another image shoes the back panel of the smartphone with dual rear cameras and a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor. The antenna lines seem to be running on the top and bottom of the back panel.

Lenovo CEO claims that the upcoming S5 will offer better performance than the Xiaomi Redmi Note 5.
This claim after Xiaomi’s confirmation about the use of Snapdragon 636 processor and 6GB RAM in Redmi Note 5, has increased expectations from Lenovo.

Specifications of Lenovo S5 are still unknown. But much of it would be before the release through leaks and updates from the company.

As per the listing in TENAA, Lenovo K520 would feature a 5.65-inch display with a full HD+ display with 2160 x 1080 pixel resolution. It’s CPU has a 2.0 GHz octa-core processor which is coupled with 3GB/4GB RAM. It offers 32GB/64GB storage options and supports 128GB micro SD cards. The TENAA listing also has a mention of single camera of 8-megapixel but the images clearly show that the device is featuring dual rear cameras with LED flash. For the front, it is having an 8-megapixel front-facing shooter.

The dual-SIM phone runs Android 8.0 Oreo operating system. The phone is powered by a 3000 mAh battery. Connectivity options of 4G-LTE + VoLTE, Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS/A-GPS.

It has Black, Red and Silver colour options. The phone has Gravity sensor, distance sensor, light sensor on board.
