In a post on Weibo, Lenovo executive Chang Cheng uploaded a teaser of the Lenovo S5 revealing key details around the handset. As per the teaser, the smartphone will sport a metal unibody design and a fullscreen display, hinting at 18:9 aspect ratio. Meanwhile, the dual camera setup at the back will feature an inbuilt portrait mode with bokeh effect. Additionally, there will be a face beauty mode in the camera.

Last week, Cheng had uploaded an invite for the launch event where the company will unveil its next handset from its ‘S’ series of smartphones. Later, he also shared an image of the Lenovo S5, showcasing a Red colour variant of the smartphone. The image also had revealed features like a dual rear camera setup, a fingerprint scanner, and a metal unibody design. Interestingly, Cheng had also taken on Xiaomi, saying that the Lenovo S5 will be a better smartphone than the 6GB RAM, Snapdragon 636 SoC variant of the Redmi Note 5.
