Lenovo President Teases Plans For An All-Screen Phone

Lenovo President Teases Plans For An All-Screen Phone

These days we are seeing more companies starting to make phones with edge-to-edge displays, where they are sometimes marketed as full screen phones.

It seems the best solution for phones to have as much screen real estate on the front, while also offering a front-facing camera, facial recognition sensor, or both. Chang Cheng, who serves as the company's vice president, shared a teaser of the Lenovo Z5 on Chinese microblogging site Weibo over the weekend. At the moment, the largest screen-to-ratio on the market, but not now available in SA, is the Essential Phone with 84.9%.

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. 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 image was posted on Weibo, which is a Twitter-like platform in China.

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

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. Other than that, there were no details about where in the production process the Z5 is, or if that process has even started yet.

Cheng previously shared a different teaser for the Lenovo Z5, and claimed that it had a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio.
