Lenovo Z5 is an all-screen phone with no notch or bezels

Share

Last week, Cheng shared a different teaser for the Z5, showing off a render of the upper-left corner of the device and claiming that it boasts a 95% screen-to-body ratio. Regardless of how small the notch might be it still isn't an all screen display. It remains to be seen how exactly the company achieved this and we will be taking a closer look at the compromises that have been accompanied by bringing the bezels down to such a level. It also has a fingerprint sensor beneath the display, although there's still a thicker bezel along the bottom of the device to hide the OLED's display controller.

Lenovo has already teased a smartphone with a 95% screen, but a follow-up to that teaser is a sketch and an official name of the smartphone.

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

As CNET first noted, there's a chance the sketch isn't a final version. The Lenovo Z5, in comparison, is actually "all-screen".

Rafael Nadal slips after record set right
Switzerland's Roger Federer takes over at No. 1, but Nadal can reclaim the crown if he wins the title in Rome in his next event. Nadal extended his winning streak to 50 consecutive sets on clay, eclipsing the mark McEnroe established on carpet in 1984.

A few days back, we came across a teaser from Chang Cheng, the Lenovo Group VP. They are naming their four tech breakthroughs and 18 patents as the solution to that problem.

In another post on Weibo by Cheng about the new device, he asked his audience to guess what the screen-to-body ratio of the smartphone would be. There is not going to be a notch like the iPhone X (review) or a chin like the Galaxy S9.

Lenovo has begun teasing its upcoming smartphone called the Z5 that's said to arrive with basically no bezels whatsoever. However, we've seen a number of similar pitches from Chinese smartphone makers over the previous year or so, and while Lenovo's has certainly peaked our curiosity, it's hard to get too excited while so much remains shrouded in secrecy.
