Lenovo launched the Lenovo Z5, the smartphone with a long list of innovative features, in June this year. The smartphone which was hereto restricted to the Chinese market could arrive in India today. The Chinese smartphone and electronics company recently sent out media invitations. Going by the tagline of the invitation, we expect the Chinese brand to launch the successor to the K8 Note at the event.
The Lenovo Z5 achieved great popularity among smartphone buyers in China. The company is rumored to be working on a “Pro” variant of the Lenovo Z5, which will have upgraded cameras and superior hardware and specifications.

Hence, we know all the specifications and features of the handset. Still, Lenovo could confirm critical aspects such as availability and exact Indian price of the Z5 at the launch today.
The Lenovo Z5 will sell exclusively on Flipkart. The Indian eCommerce platform has set up a landing page for the Lenovo smartphone.
