Qualcomm announced its new Snapdragon 855 processor during the Snapdragon Summit in Maui, Hawaii, and now we know what smartphone will be the first to use the new Snapdragon 855 processor: Lenovo.


Lenovo announced its new Z5 Pro GT smartphone that is powered by the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, and is joined by a whopping 12GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. Lenovo is using a cool pop-up selfie camera, meaning the display can stretch across the screen more, now taking up 95.06% of the front of the phone with its large 6.39-inch display.

The new Z5 Pro GT smartphone rocks Sony's impressive IMX576 sensor that sees the phone featuring a dual-camera rig that is split between a 24-megapixel and 16-megapixel sensor. Inside, there's a large 3350mAh battery, and Android 9.0 Pie pre-installed with Lenovo's own ZUI 10 custom launcher on top.

Not too damn bad at all in a world where flagship handsets range between $1000-$1500 and more.
