Lenovo Z6 Pro in for review

Michail, 12 August 2019

Lenovo’s Z6 Pro was launched back in April but is only now making its way outside of China. It comes with a well-rounded spec sheet featuring the Snapdragon 855, up to 12GB RAM and a quad-camera array all for a starting price of around €500.

The phone made its way to our office and we’re getting ready to put it through the usual testing course but before we do so lets quickly go through its key features and see what you can expect.

Starting off with the packaging, it’s quite nice with a sleek matte box and a fabric-like look. The design of the Z6 Pro itself is fairly standard with a dual glass construction and metal frame. The back features a light refracting finish which shifts in color depending on how lighting meets it. Our review unit comes with the Green paint job, but there's a red version too.

The Z6 Pro is built around a 6.39-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display which features a waterdrop notch for the 32MP selfie camera. Going around the back we have a quad-camera array with a 48MP F/1.8 main sensor alongside a 16MP F/2.2 ultrawide, 8 MP F/2.4 telephoto and a 2MP F/1.8 dedicated video cam. A ToF module sits beside the LED flash, too.

Lenovo is betting big on the Z6 Pro’s camera capabilities but we’ll see if it lives up to the hype in our full review.

The Snapdragon 855 chipset is paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage on our review unit but there’s also a version with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage. Either way, we expect to see solid performance here just like past phones that came with this chipset. Running through everyday tasks and gaming on high settings should be a breeze.

Moving on to the battery department we have a 4,000 mAh cell which supports 18W fast charging. Inside the box, Lenovo provides a 27W type C charging brick and a type C to type C cable. The software front is covered by ZUI 11 which runs on top of Android Pie.

Well that just about covers the basics for this quick rundown, keep an eye out for the full review coming next week.

Well first of all I don't think that an "original Global ROM" actually exists (released by Lenovo that is). So the first problem with Global ROM is that it's not frequently updated. On the other hand the Global is pretty much stock so it works better...

What is the difference between Chinese version and Global version?

I forgot to mention it also has headphone jack which for me is a big plus :)
