If you thought that a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor paired with 10GB of RAM was the bee’s knees, then you'll definitely be bowled over by Lenovo's latest release. Just a few weeks ago, we were championing the release of the world's first flagship phones with 10GB of RAM onboard, and now Lenovo has announced the Z5 Pro GT which is the world's first smartphone to come with 12GB of RAM. It seems as though not long ago, 4GB was the "gold standard" and many OEMs simply skipped over 6GB and went straight for 8GB. Now with 10GB and 12GB smartphones upon us, it's up to developers...

Lenovo has announced a refresh of its ThinkPad L-Series, and it includes hardware updates for both the standard ThinkPad L390 and the ThinkPad L390 Yoga.

The L390 is also available with Intel Celeron, Core i3 and Core vPro i5 processors. The L390 Yoga,... Read more...

During the summer, leaks were surfacing that suggested Lenovo was here to save us all from the notched smartphone reality that we face today. That smartphone was called the Lenovo Z5, however, when the Z5 launched it indeed featured a notch shattering the dreams of people wanting to avoid that feature. Lenovo has now gone official with a new version of the Z5 called the Z5 Pro; this device lacks a notch and has a 95% screen-to-body ratio. The smartphone still has a front camera, but rather than being crammed into a notch, a sliding front camera module pops up behind the screen. Lenovo calls out... Read more...
Imitation might be the sincerest form of flattery, but that doesn't mean companies take kindly to others infringing on their intellectual property (IP) or otherwise ripping off their products. Whether Lenovo did that to Sony with its Mirage Solo VR headset, which looks strikingly similar to the PlayStation VR, is now moot. Why? Sony and Lenovo signed a two-year patent licensing agreement that renders it so. Lenovo Mirage Solo "We are pleased to announce that we have licensed the PS VR headset design to Lenovo," said Riley Russell, Chief Legal Officer at SIE. "The industrial design for PS VR has...

It takes a lot to stand out in the crowded segment of premium, high-quality 2-in-1 notebooks, however. Lenovo’s... Read more...
