Lenovo's Z5 isn't the first truly bezel-less phone after all

Lenovo Z5 Announced, Features A Display Notch After All

Lenovo has introduced two new budget phones dubbed as the Lenovo K5 Note and Lenovo A5 in China.

On the camera front, it features a 13-megapixel rear sensor with LED flash, while for the front, there is an 8-megapixel shooter for selfies and video calling.

That's right, a 64GB variant is going up for pre-order today in China at a measly 1299 yuan, while twice the internal storage space will set you back CNY 1799 ($280), with actual sales underway June 12.

If we rewind back to earlier this year, Lenovo first started teasing the Z5 as a smartphone that didn't compromise on its mission to be an all-screen device. That's great, but doesn't undo the disingenuous sales pitch.

The Chinese company claimed that Lenovo Z5 sports the notch design on top of the display which is way thinner than the ones seen on the iPhone X and Xiaomi Mi 8. Or maybe it doesn't.

While Nadal focuses on Roland Garros and Federer gears up for Wimbledon, for Rakitic and Messi all attention is on the World Cup . Supporters gave the Argentina national team a rousing send-off before the players left for the World Cup in Russian Federation .

The Lenovo Z5 is powered by a 3,300mAh battery with fast charge support and connectivity options on the device include 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac (2.4GHz + 5GHz), Bluetooth 5.0, 3.5mm audio jack, Global Positioning System and a USB Type-C port.

Design-wise, the Z5 has a notch and a bezel, along with 2.5D glass panels with Corning Glass protection and anti-fingerprint protection coating front and back with an aluminum frame holding them together. The Z5 runs on ZUI 3.9 on top of Android 8.1 Oreo out-of-the-box.

Both the K5 Note and the A5 have been launched in China. On the connectivity front, the Z5 include Bluetooth v5.0, GPS, 4G LTE, dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11ac, 3.5mm headphone jack, and USB Type-C. Moreover, it ships with a 3000 mAh battery which in no way can offer 45 days of standby time or last for 30 minutes on 0% charge.

It is powered by a 1.5GHz Quad-Core MediaTek MT6739 processor with PowerVR Rogue GE8100 GPU. The memory can be further expanded up to 256GB via micro SD card slot. The dual SIM phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo with ZUI 3.9 Lite. It is possible that the company is planning to introduce another Z5 handset soon (even though that's not as likely), so that the company can justify all those teasers, but until then, let's take a look at the Lenovo Z5. The phones are now available in China and there is no word on India availability yet.
