Lenovo and Honor unveiled their answer to Xiaomi’s Mi MIX 3 – the new Lenovo Z5 Pro and Honor Magic 2.

The first, Lenovo’s phone, packs a 6.39-inch Super AMOLED screen which has a screen ratio of up to 95.06%, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 710AIE Turbo chip coupled with 6GB of RAM and 64GB/128GB of internal storage.
