After all the hype that was created for Lenovo’s Z5, which was claimed to be ‘all-screen’, it turned out that this was all just talks and the smartphone actually has a notch after all.
Lenovo teased a render of its Z5 last month, asserting that the phone will have a screen completely stretched to the edges. However, when the smartphone was actually unveiled yesterday on June 5, the render turned out not to be true.
Previously, Lenovo VP Chang Cheng shared images of the all-screen smartphone and said that the device was a technical breakthrough and will have 95% screen-to-body ratio. Lenovo reveal happened on June 5 in China and the smartphone, killing everyone’s excitement, came in with a notch and a chin at the bottom, wrote Ars Technica.
However, as per Engadget, the notch is narrower than that found in iPhone X and the phone has a longer display too. The ‘95% screen-to-body ratio’ is now claimed to be 90%. Other than that, the general specs of the phone include 16MP dual rear cameras, 6GB RAM, 3,300mAh battery and fast charging.
The good news is that the phone comes in with cheap price tags. The prices start at roughly $200 for a 64GB model or around $280 for 128GB model and will go on sale on June 12 in China. Availability in other markets is yet to be announced.
