A quick glance through on the Z6 and you can find how much it has improved over the last year or so over its predecessor.

Starting with a larger 6.39-inch SUPER AMOLED screen that now comes with DCI-P3, HDR 10 and 120 Hz display. It is like watching movie inside a cinema, so smooth and so fluid that you will be mesmerized by it. Then there’s the Gorilla Glass protection to protect the smartphone against any harm that might go its way.

In terms of performance, the Z6 belongs somewhere in the middle of things. Here you can find it equipped with the Snapdragon 730 chipset with a fast Kryo octa-core processor, good graphics and either 6GB or 8GB RAM. Fast enough for your daily dose of apps and games of the usual kind.

Moving on to the camera side of things, we can find the Z6 blessed with a triple primary camera setup. A 24MP+8MP+5MP camera will provide great attention to details, and some of the most amazing details that you will find on a smartphone. A 16MP selfie camera with HDR feature than completes the package.

By taking lots and lots of photos, the next thing that you will be worried about will be on the storage. Thankfully, whether you choose to go with 64GB or 128GB of storage, you can always add up to an additional 1TB via the microSD expansion slot.

Battery-wise, the Z6 comes with a larger 4000 mAh battery which should have no problem powering up the smartphone for a day or two.

Conclusion:

What a difference a year makes in the smartphone world. Lenovo Z6 has improved leaps and bounds by offering everything we want, and so much more.

Lenovo Z6 is slated for a July 9th release and comes with a price tag of 1,899 Chinese Yuan or ~459 USD for the 64GB internal storage + 6GB RAM variant, 2,099 Chinese Yuan or ~505 USD for the 128GB internal storage + 6GB RAM variant and 2,499 Chinese Yuan or ~605 USD for the 128GB internal storage + 8GB RAM variant. Blue is the only colour of choice, though.
