Last week, Cheng shared a different teaser for the Z5, showing off a render of the upper-left corner of the device and claiming that it boasts a 95% screen-to-body ratio. Originally seen - and often criticized - on the Essential PH-1 and iPhone X in 2017, the trend of adding notches to Android phones has only accelerated this year as phone makers look to maximize the screen size. Regardless of how small the notch might be it still isn't an all screen display. As seen in the sketch, there appears to be negligible bezel at the bottom of the smartphone. This barrier still exists until the Vivo Apex prototype has unveiled, which sported a no notch display with no bezels. 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. Apple, for instance, folded the OLED screen around the back of the device whereas the selfie camera went in the notch. According to the report, Lenovo has also released the sketch design of the Lenovo Z5, which also suggests the same design element, as stated earlier. Anyway you look at it, a 95 percent screen to body ratio is quite impressive.

Will the iPhone SE 2 have a notch just like the iPhone X? Cheng added that the Z5 would have significant technological breakthroughs supported by at least 18 patents. Unlike the iPhone X, though, there's no earpiece or front-facing camera anywhere in sight, and the bezels surrounding the panel are nearly nonexistent.
