Another Lenovo-made render of the Z5 shows less than half of the device, but from what we can see, it may end up being the first truly edge-to-edge screen on the market.

All-screen phones look cool, but they challenge the manufacturer to find a place to put front cameras, sensors and other hardware. 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.

As bezels shrink, we see companies touting "all-screen" designs, with some reaching that milestone a bit better than others. However the reality is that for the most part, many of them do not sport full screen displays as there is still some bezels left, but could Lenovo beat everyone to the punch?

Here's Ryan Reynolds dressed as a unicorn for weird Korean TV appearance
Needless to say, the crowd went absolutely batshit when Reynolds removed his Nina Bo'Nina Brown lewk to reveal his true identity. He informed the judges that he hadn't told anyone of his surprise appearance on the show, including wife Blake Lively .

This means that not only are the bezels on the edge gone, but so is the notch at the top.

If this sketch is accurate the Lenovo Z5 could have no real bezel at all. He did not address however how Lenovo would integrate a front-facing selfie camera on the device. The fingerprint sensor likely isn't a problem - it can be placed either under the display or around the back - but things like the front-facing camera, ambient light sensor, and earpiece for phone calls all need to go somewhere. While Apple may claim the iPhone X has been "all display", its notorious notch - along with the rash of Android imitators that followed - states differently. In that post, Cheng said the Z5 had a 95 percent screen-to-body ratio. Cheng also claims that the Z5 will comprise four technological discoveries such as 18 technology that is patented.
