As expected, Lenovo has officially unveiled the standard Lenovo Z6 smartphone in China. It is the newest entrant to the Z6 lineup comprising of Lenovo Z6 Pro and Lenovo Z6 Youth edition. The former one is the most expensive and the latter one is the most affordable variant in the series. It means the standard variant sits right in the middle of the two models.
The Lenovo Z6 sports a 6.39-inch OLED notched display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and 93.1% screen-to-body ratio. The screen resolution is yet to be revealed officially but since both other variants offer Full HD+ resolution, we are expecting the standard variant to be on the same page. Under the hood, it has the Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor coupled with 6GB and 8GB of RAM. It has been released in 64GB and 128GB internal storage options with a total of three configuration variants: 6GB/64GB, 6GB/128GB, and 8GB/128GB.
In the camera department, it has a triple rear camera setup with a 24-megapixel primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, an 8-megapixel telephoto sensor, and a 5-megapixel depth sensor. The telephoto sensor is capable of offering up to 2x optical zoom and up to 8x hybrid zoom. It also has a 16-megapixel front camera for video calling and selfie clicking purposes.
The whole package is powered by a 4,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging support. On the software side of things, it will be running ZUI 11 based on Android 9 Pie out of the box. The phone does not have a physical fingerprint scanner as it comes with an in-display fingerprint scanner.
The Lenovo Z6 has been priced at CNY 1899 (about $276) for 6GB/64GB variant, CNY 2099 (about $305) for 6GB/128GB variant, and CNY 2499 (about $364) for 8GB/128GB variant. All of these variants will go on sale starting July 9th with no words on the global availability yet.
