The Lenovo Z5 isn’t the All-screen Phone the Hype Was All About

Lenovo teased out some pretty amazing renders about the Z5 a couple of weeks ago but the phone they launched yesterday in Beijing wasn’t that one.
To be honest, the Z5 looks stunning. It has got the modern design with almost bezel less display, houses a notch and has a little bottom chin. But the renders hinted a truly all-screen design free from bezels and notches.
The Z5 has a 6.2-inch 19:9 1080p screen with bezels that Lenovo claims are thinner than the Xiaomi Mi 8 and iPhone X, and a notch that is narrower than those two phones. But it still has a notch, like practically every other Android phone this year. Lenovo claims a screen-to-body ratio of 90 percent.
The phone has an unspecified eight-core Qualcomm processor and 16-megapixel dual cameras. The battery is 3,300mAh and can be fast-charged at 18W.
And the Z5 is pretty cheap at 1,299 yuan (~$200) for a model with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, or 1,799 yuan (~$280) for 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage.
It’ll go on sale in China on June 12th, the day Vivo is set to announce its own much-hyped phone that takes cues from the impressive bezel-less Apex prototype we saw earlier this year.
We don’t know yet if the phone will be available for other Asian markets like India or not.
