Lenovo’s latest flagship device, the Z5 Pro is all set to be officially launched on the 1st of November, but the company has taken a different approach to reveal information about their upcoming smartphone. Until the official reveal, Lenovo will publish a promotional image every day revealing one striking feature of the smartphone.
Lenovo revealed a new promotional image today which highlights a dedicated chip for data security. While the image is in Chinese (thanks to IXBT for the translation), the data security feature likely hints at hardware encryption. There is still no clarity about the same, so any details about this feature is mere speculation. Apart from this, the image also has Turbo written on it, which is probably a nick for the said feature, or a hint at the presence of accelerator graphics which is present in Huawei and Oppo phones.
Yesterday, Lenovo Vice President Chang Wei also revealed some information about the Z5 Pro’s slider mechanism. He revealed that the Mi Mix 3’s slider isn’t a bonus as such because “when using a smartphone in a slider form factor, which is fixed in extreme positions due to magnets, there is no feeling that you have a premium device”. Moreover, a source claims that the Mi Mix 3 will be able to withstand 300,000 open/close cycles without any problems. On the other hand, the Z5 Pro will have the same mechanism externally, but it implements a unique six-position mechanism. What this six-point technology does, is still unknown.
Chang Wei further claimed that the Lenovo Z5 Pro has one of the most expensive subscreen fingerprint scanners in the market. With the smartphone all set to be officially announced on the 1st of November, it will be interesting to see what new features Lenovo incorporates in their upcoming flagship, and whether the smartphone will actually be able to perform as per claims.
