Lenovo is expected to launch a new smartphone called the Lenovo S5 under its ‘S’ series on March 20. A new teaser image has been shared by Lenovo’s VP Chang Cheng on the social media platform Weibo. Earlier in the month, Lenovo had shared an image on the same social media platform announcing an event on March 20.
There have been a lot of posts by Lenovo in the past month teasing about the upcoming Lenovo S5 smartphone. Earlier in the year, the company had revealed an image showcasing the bottom half of the phone with a glossy metal body and a curved design. Another teaser revealed that the smartphone will launch with ZUK’s ZUI Android skin.
However, the recently shared image by the company showcases a Red colour variant of the upcoming smartphone. Additionally, the image also reveals some of the specifications and features of the mobile such as a metal unibody design, a dual rear camera setup and a fingerprint scanner.

Though not much has been revealed by the company at this time, the Lenovo S5 is expected to be a premium mid-end smartphone. The smartphone is also rumoured to come with a hardware security chip and boast a powerful 6000mAh battery.

Furthermore, Lenovo’s VP Chang Cheng was quoted at an event saying that, “The Lenovo S5 will arrive on March 20 and will be a better smartphone than the Redmi Note 5”.
