Lenovo teases a slick, all-screen smartphone that doesn't have a notch

Lenovo Tri Fold Display Laptop Lenovo Z5 is an all-screen phone with no notch or bezels

For some smartphone fans, the trend began by the Essential Phone and the iPhone X is a step backwards in terms of design, for others its desirable.

Lenovo's Z5 is missing the most important element of the phone these days; the notch.

Lenovo's Vice President, Chang Cheng recently took to the Chinese social media platform Weibo to announce the brand's upcoming flagship.

Smartphone bezels are getting smaller all the time, with phones such as the iPhone X now offering an nearly all-screen design, other than a notch, but Lenovo could be about to ditch the notch as well and deliver a truly bezel-free phone. Whats even more impressive is that a company which is not so prominent in the smartphone business could produce a full-body display without adding a notch.

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's first "all-screen" will debut soon and thanks to discarding the notch and making bezels thinner, Lenovo has managed to achieve an unprecedented screen-to-body ratio of 95 percent.

We find it amusing that the next person to be elected on that "path" was President Trump . This is another example of a promise made, promise kept".

A Lenovo exec shared this sketch of the Lenovo Z5.

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.

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

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.
