Lenovo announces the world’s first 12GB RAM smartphone

Lenovo has announced its latest flagship Z5 Pro GT. The premium device boasts a whopping 12 GB of RAM. The Z5 Pro GT is equipped 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. 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 fibre 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 colours 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. 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.
