The world’s first truly all screen smartphone will be launched next week, it has been confirmed.
The Lenovo Z5 will be officially unveiled on June 5, according to the company’s VP Chan Cheng who posted details of the launch on Weibo.
Earlier this month, images of the new handset were shared to social media showing the bottom half of the device, which boasts an incredible 95 percent screen to body ratio.
By comparison, the iPhone X and the Samsung Galaxy S9 have screen to body ratios of 82.9 and 84.2 percent, respectively.
Lenovo also shared a sketch of the phone showing its remarkable all screen design.
And now the firm have confirmed that the Z5 will be launched in a week’s time.
Smartphone manufacturers are striving to cram as much display into new handsets as possible. Most recently this has been achieved by the likes of Samsung and Apple by cutting down on the borders around the outside of the smartphone.
But by doing this it makes it difficult to include a front facing camera which is then housed in a notch at the top of the handset, as seen on the iPhone X, which isn’t to everyone’s liking.
While Lenovo has only shared a sketch of the device there are no details yet on its specifications making it unclear how the firm will include a front facing camera in an all screen smartphone.
It could be that Lenovo will place the camera at the bottom of the handset, like Xiaomi has done on its Mi Mix smartphone, which is arguably as close as there is to a fullscreen smartphone to date.
The only other tidbit of information also comes from Cheng who has claimed the Z5 will also include a whopping 4TB of resident storage, which seems a little hard to believe.
Cheng also said the battery on Z5 will have 45 days standby time off a single charge.
We’ll know more on June 5.
