Dive into the insights

The Lenovo Z6 Pro is an interesting device both internally and externally. With its thin bezels and water drop notch to carry the front camera, it guarantees an immersive experience. The in-display fingerprint sensor arrives at Lenovo too. The biometric sensor on Z6 Pro uses an optical sensor instead of an ultrasonic sensor which allows faster unlock support and the ability to detect wet fingers. The AMOLED display on the Z6 Pro also supports features like DCI-P3 color gamut, DC Dimming, and HDR 10. In order to avoid device heat up due to its massive specs, Lenovo claims that it added “PC-grade Coldfront liquid cooling system” to the device.

Powerful internal specifications

One of the many reasons for it being a power-house is the fact that Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 powers the new Z6 Pro. To make an invincible combination, Lenovo has created variants with RAM up to 12GB and storage up to 512GB. This should very well allow you to fulfill your dreams of a beefed-up phone. You also get other features like dual SIM support, dual-frequency GPS, aptX HD audio codec support, Dolby Atmos support and a USB Type-C port. The 4,000 mAh battery supports 27W fast charging and reverse-charging too. Since Lenovo has not mentioned “reverse wireless charging” specifically, we presume reverse charging to take place through the Type-C port.

Lenovo Z6 Pro Camera

Lenovo Z6 Pro’s camera setup is simply amazing. The “AI-powered” system is making Lenovo’s camera abilities touch a new high. The top camera is the 16MP wide angle shooter, followed by the regular 48MP camera, then an 8MP telephoto camera, and a dedicated 2MP camera for video enhancements. There’s also ToF sensors present besides the dual-LED flash, and the phone also comes with PDAF and OIS. Furthermore, features like Super Night Scene, Super Macro, and Super Wide Angle make it a beast in comparison to its competitors. Hopefully, the device can stand its ground against established players which sport simpler camera hardware.

Lenovo Z6 Pro runs on Android Pie with ZUI 11 on top, which includes software enhancements like Game Turbo mode, and more.
