The Chinese smartphone maker Lenovo has launched its Z5 in its range of premium phones on Tuesday alongside the Lenovo A5 and Lenovo K5 note at an event held in Beijing.

Other highlights of the Lenovo Z5 include the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 636 SoC, a vertical dual rear camera setup with AI capabilities, and an iPhone X-like notch.
