Lenovo S5 Pro Review

After launching Lenovo S5 back in March, now Lenovo’s Vice President Chang Cheng recently released a teaser which is showing company’s upcoming smartphone with four rear cameras named Lenovo S5 Pro in Australia and other countries, of course. A little back, it was expected that it could be named Z5 Pro but an executive has shared a camera sample on his Weibo page – capturing using an upcoming Lenovo S5 Pro smartphone.

Be noted, everything mentioned below is entirely based on rumours and suggestions around. Perhaps, these are quite different from other online sources. So, we don’t guarantee their 100% accuracy. However, as soon as we hear more, we’ll acknowledge you.

Price and Availability

The Vice President of Lenovo Mr. Chang Cheng suggested on Weibo that the official Lenovo S5 Pro release date in Australia, as well as China and other regions, is October – however – no specific date was mentioned.

We are expecting Lenovo S5 Pro to be landed on shelves alongside Lenovo Z5 Pro before October is out.

As far as Lenovo S5 Pro Price in Australia is concerned, it’s highly expected to be priced slightly on a higher side as compared to its predecessor Lenovo S5.

The Lenovo S5 arrived in Australia at a starting price of just AU$199 (around 999 Yuan). As Lenovo S5 Pro is backed by an impressive quad-camera configuration at a rear and perhaps a lot more other major upgrades, we’re expecting it to land at in between the range of AU$240-260 (around 1199 Yuan) for the base variant. 

Lenovo S5 Pro Dotted on Geekbench

Ahead of its official launch, Lenovo S5 Pro Geekbench listing unveils that it’s a mid-range Android smartphone and wouldn’t break your bank. It will be equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 AIE Octa-core processor which is coupled with an impressive amount of RAM – 6GB. The S5 Pro boasts quite a powerful mid-range SoC and if everything we have heard turns out to be true, it will also be available in 3GB and 4GB of RAM versions.

Moving on in a software department, Geekbench reveals that Lenovo S5 Pro will come with an Android 8.1 Oreo operating system alongside company’s own ZUI custom user-interface running on top of Android Oreo. That sound similar to Lenovo S5 and upcoming Z5.

You can be pretty sure about overall performance especially when it comes to Lenovo’s smartphones, isn’t it? Based on numerous online sources, Lenovo S5 Pro managed to post a single-core score of 1337 and a multi-core score of 4928 points. We’re not quite sure about it as it’s what we’ve heard.

However, these scores aren’t really eye-catching, nor best-in-class. They are more or less on par with an average score we can expect from a smartphone which is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 Chipset.

Lenovo S5 Pro Camera and Others

Rumours around are suggesting that Lenovo S5 Pro will be loaded with an exquisite and gorgeous 5.7-inches IPS LCD screen with a maximum resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels and an aspect ratio of 19:9. Digging down inside, it’s offering users three different configuration – 3GB with 32GB of onboard memory, 4GB with 64GB storage space and 6GB of RAM with a massive 128GB of onboard storage. Either it’s further expandable or not, it needs to be confirmed.

Talking about a camera, Lenovo S5 Pro will house an innovative dual rear camera – 13MP + 13MP with an aperture of f/2.2. And out front, you’ll see a solid 16MP snapper with an aperture of f/2.2 and supports for Full HD Video Capture.

Connectivity features coming alongside Lenovo S5 Pro include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, dual-band, GPS, NFC, FM Radio, Bluetooth 4.2 and USB Type-C port, of course. The battery details are yet to be revealed, though. Again, you should be mindful that none of above has actually been confirmed. Stay tuned for more and accurate details.
