Lenovo’s Vice President Chang Cheng recently posted an image teasing an upcoming smartphone. He said that the device will sport more than 95 percent screen-to-body (StB) ratio and now, Cheng has again posted a sketch of the device on Weibo revealing that it is the Lenovo Z5. If the sketch is to be believed, the smartphone could actually come with a display which nears 100 percent StB ratio. However, this cannot be confirmed as it’s not very clear from the sketch if there are actually no bezels and we will have to wait till the device is officially launched, which is expected to be on June 14. 

Cheng also states that the Lenovo Z5 will be equipped with four new technologies, which enables it to achieve such high screen real estate. This includes retaining the screen taken up by the earpiece, front-facing camera and possibly the fingerprint scanner. It should also be noted that there is no notch on the top of the display and it’s not impossible to achieve this as Vivo has already demoed how it can be done with its Apex concept smartphone. The front-facing camera on the Apex is to the top of the device where it pops-up from. The front-facing fingerprint scanner has also been eliminated in the same device with the help of an in-display fingerprint scanner. The earpiece was eliminated in the Xiaomi Mi Mix (review) using a “cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic technology”, which vibrates the internal metal frame of the device for producing the sound.

In the previous teaser, Lenovo showcased an edge of the Z5. There also, a bezel or some sort of protective layer is seen between the metallic frame and the display. It’s been some time since the company released any flagship smartphone for some time now. Rumours of the Lenovo Zuk Z3 max surfaced in June last year but there haven’t been any follow-up reports on it since then and Lenovo seems to be more focused on its other offerings like laptops and fitness devices.

In the laptop segment, Lenovo previously launched its 8th-gen Intel Core processor powered ThinkPad X1 (review), alongside the T, X and L series of notebooks. The new ThinkPad lineup retains the same build and design as its predecessor but brings HDR screens for the premium variants, along with enhanced security, USB-C power adapters and additional Thunderbolt ports. The company also recently launched the HX03F Spectra, Cardio HX03 wearables and the HS11 Body Fat Scale in India. The HX03F Spectra sports a colour display with a resolution of 180 x 80 pixels and connects to a smartphone using Bluetooth 4.2. It comes with IP68 water resistance as well. The Lenovo Cardio HX03 is akin to the HX03 Spectra, but it features a monochrome display. It is also IP68 certified water resistant. The Lenovo Body Fat Scale HS11 has been launched as a direct competitor to the Xiaomi Mi Body Composition Scale. The HS11 is can take measurements of 13 health indicators and users can keep track of 30 profiles.
