This could be the world's first 'all-screen' smartphone

This could be the world's first 'all-screen' smartphone

Lenovo's Z5 is missing the most important element of the phone these days; the notch. Regardless of how small the notch might be it still isn't an all screen display. Well, if that brand is Lenovo then you would plan to launch a phone with a feature that is yet to be found on any other smartphone If reports are to be believed then Lenovo is set to launch an "all-screen" smartphone. This barrier still exists until the Vivo Apex prototype has unveiled, which sported a no notch display with no bezels.

At least, that's according to a sketch shared last Friday by Lenovo VP Chang Cheng on Weibo, a Twitter-like platform in China.

Owing to the future-like design of the Lenovo Z5, the sketch looks like something that we would see in the future for what smartphones would start to shape like.

This year, a number of Android smartphone manufacturers also incorporated the infamous "top notch" into their flagship devices, including the LG G7, the Huawei P20 and P20 Pro, and the Asus ZenFone 5. Cheng also claims that the Z5 will comprise four technological discoveries such as 18 technology that is patented. The screen-to-body ratio is about 95% which is really impressive. Apple notoriously ditched its infamous home button that also allows an nearly all screen design save for the notch at the top for the Face ID facial recognition system. There is not going to be a notch like the iPhone X (review) or a chin like the Galaxy S9.

Lenovo has teased a new arrival that might top Apple's iPhone X in a bid to deliver a true all-screen smartphone.
