Lenovo teases a smartphone that's basically all screen


The upcoming Lenovo Z5 honestly looks like it gained inspiration from the Vivo APEX and the iPhone X. The phone had a lovely edge-to-edge display with really thin bezels but left out the notch which many Android manufacturers were quick to copy Apple. In the sketch that he uploaded (see above), he references what he is calling the Lenovo Z5, and from what we can tell this is a smartphone that truly has an all-screen design. The goal of the notch-at least in the case of the iPhone X-is to allow for the mechanics of the front facing camera, the earpiece, and more, to still exist on the front of the phone while not losing the claim that the screen goes from edge to edge.

One company that doesn't seem to be following the notch trend is Lenovo. Asus, Huawei, LG, and others have all introduced new devices with edge-to-edge screens and notches in recent months. Cheng's post claims that "four technological breakthroughs" and "18 patented technologies" were made for the phone, but doesn't go into details. The teaser is also a concept sketch, so we may not be getting the full story here.

Alongside a claim which the telephone would comprise an impressive screen-to-body-ratio of 95 percent.

We'll find out more about the Z5 closer to its launch in June.

This means that not only are the bezels on the edge gone, but so is the notch at the top.

We don't have any type of release date for the Lenovo Z5 yet, but we'll let you know when we know more.
