Lenovo teases the Z5, a true all-screen phone

The upcoming Lenovo Z5 smartphone could become the first such device to include nothing on the front but the screen. That's why we see bezels on some phones and notches on others.

Are you a fan of the notch on phones like the iPhone X?

Some manufacturers, like Samsung and Google, use a workaround for their almost-all-screen displays that involves extending the top of the phone an extra millimeter or two to make room for those components. It even sports a similar wallpaper in early photos Lenovo has teased ahead of its official debut.

Devices which have already addressed this issue with high screen ratios are, of course, Vivo Apex, which has a pop-up selfie camera but bottom bezel, and the Mi Mix 2s, which tucks the camera into a chin at the bottom.

Lenovo's Vice President according to Twitter leakster Benjamin Geskin Chang Cheng says that it took four groundbreaking technologies and 18 patented technologies to achieve the design of Z5.

ICSE, ISC results to be declared at 3 pm today
Reportedly, the board will announce the ICSE and ISC results after a press conference at the Council's Noida office. Earlier, the pass percentages were 35 per cent and 40 per cent for ICSE and ISC students, respectively.

Lenovo is now looking to disrupt this aspect - with a phone that has an all-glass front. A speaker can not be spotted in the teaser images so it is likely that Lenovo has used a piezoelectric speaker behind the display, which is similar to the Xiaomi's Mi MIX, the first smartphone to adopt such a cheaper.

It's also unclear how the Z5 will handle security.

Whether the Z5 is ready for primetime, or is simply an example of tech Lenovo is still working on remains to be seen.

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