Lenovo Z5 is to be a new smartphone, which can be somehow "revolutionary". I like the concept very much, but I have a few doubts.
Lenovo Z5 – a dream smartphone?
The upcoming Lenovo smartphone can be something special. If you believe the published graphics by the brand's boss himself, we are talking about a beautiful front panel. The display itself has to occupy as much as 95% of its surface. https://www.gsmmaniak.pl/841052/lenovo-z5/
Where will the front camera be in the Lenovo Z5?
The most important question is – where will the front camera be? It seems to me that Lenovo has no choice but to use a hidden camera in the case. Vivo once presented a similar solution. It looks not very attractive. Another option is simply abandoning the front camera, although taking into account market trends (eg selfie), we can reject this opportunity. For me the idea of a sliding front camera is the only sensible way out. However, it is unattractive to me, unintuitive and generally "strong". In this case, a better solution is to cut out the screen where the webcam is located.
Where will the sensors and speaker be in the Lenovo Z5?
Sensors will probably be hidden under the screen or in a minimal beam, which will probably appear at the bottom of the screen anyway. In the end, the display will take up 95% and we still have 5% available. It is possible that if that happened, it would also fit the camera or the appropriate sensors there. The speaker for talks is supposed to be under the upper "frame".
What about the bezels around the display in the Lenovo Z5?
If you believe the sketch, then the Lenovo Z5 will be a real-time blindfold. After all, sketches never reflect a hundred percent reality, but they have the task of awakening the imagination. However, we have a piece of the render, but here again – we see only part of the smartphone. Perhaps 5% of the front panel has been reserved for the lower beam or those metal frames around the display? Who knows? In any case, we can be sure that they will not be "thick". For comparison, the iPhone X has as many as several millimeter frames . Their task is to prevent the user accidentally touching the display and performing an unintentional action. How will the Lenovo Z5 work in this case? We do not have any suggested answers. If it does not actually receive "frames" then maybe the manufacturer comes up with a different assumption. We'll find out everything over time.
Lenovo Z5 will be interesting, but that's all
Maybe Lenovo will embarrass Apple, Samsung and other manufacturers. Let me remind you that it was this company a few years ago, the first to present prototypes of a smartphone with a flexible display, put on the wrist or a tablet with a folding screen. Maybe this year, the producer will have his 5 minutes. However, I do not think that users fell on their knees with the impression. Lenovo Z5 promises to be really interesting , but unfortunately – nowadays, the display is just one of the many components that affect the final evaluation of user satisfaction with a smartphone manufacturer. Therefore (despite everything) I doubt that the Lenovo Z5 could conquer the global market.
