However the reality is that for the most part, many of them do not sport full screen displays as there is still some bezels left, but could Lenovo beat everyone to the punch? The Lenovo Vice President Chang Cheng recently showed a sketch for a smartphone on Weibo (via CNet).
The Lenovo Z5 will arrive sometime in June and since it does not appear to have a facial recognition sensor other than the one that will be incorporated via software, it will probably have a fingerprint scanner for user authentication. However, the latest teaser shared by Cheng has quashed that doubt as well.
Whether the Z5 is ready for primetime, or is simply an example of tech Lenovo is still working on remains to be seen. It's worth pointing out, however, that Cheng's Weibo post doesn't really share any details about the Z5, only identifying it as the company's new flagship device. Apple's iPhone X seems to have found a decent compromise, as it features a notch that carves out a space for cameras and other sensors on the front, and we've seen many Android manufacturers following suit with their own devices. It isn't clear how Lenovo is achieving this, but it's assumed a great foot of engineering went into the design and component layout.
The upcoming Lenovo Z5 honestly looks like it gained inspiration from the Vivo APEX and the iPhone X. The phone had a attractive edge-to-edge display with really thin bezels but left out the notch which many Android manufacturers were quick to copy Apple. Take a look at the teaser below.
