The much awaited Lenovo S5 has been announced and would officially make its debut on the 25th of March 2018. Lenovo stylishly waited for the 2018 Mobile World Congress to cool off before announcing this beauty.

Looks so plain to be honest, with a combination of Metal and Plastic to finish the body. The dual rear camera in a horizontal position at the top left is one of the highlight at the back. Beside the dual shooters is a dual-LED flash, ready to take over the night.

The fingerprint scanner is at the usual position, while the Lenovo logo and loudspeaker sits at the bottom corner. Turning over to the sides, it measures about 8.4 mm in thickness and weighs less than 190g overall. It’s only available at the moment in Red and Black colors.

It’s also noteworthy to see how tiny the narrow bezels are and how impressive the screen is overall.

  1. Wow! Wow!! Wow!!!!! Lenovo are really doing very massive job! 64GB ROM and 4GB RAM is just so super best and the battery capacity is OK for the spec the phone come with so I am giving Lenovo a 10/10 for this! Nice one sir

  2. Wow! 64GB ROM, 4GB RAM. That’s absolutely awesome! Lenovo has always made the list of my best mobile devices. Though, I would have preferred a 4000mAh battery capacity. But, 3000 is still OK. This device is a beauty to behold.
    Brilliant review. Well done, bro.
