Parts of leading smartphone manufacturers have saved their ace until the end of 2018, if that year had not had enough telephone and news. If another day we echo some suggestive teaser Huawei, now Lenovo that promises news for the month starting tomorrow, shows us Lenovo cellphone with a hole in the screen.
At first we pointed to next year as the year of the hollow screen (so that out there the front camera floated and didn't have to use a notch to scratch the millimeter frame for the screen). But if Lenovo finally comes forward, or Samsung or Huawei, it looks like next December we will begin to see these designs functioning.
Hole, three cameras and 5G
Lenovo's first nod was Huawei's style, with the official posters given to us by Weibo (and Gizmochina) showing that what we will show soon is a cellphone with a boring screen. In this case Lenovo Z5, the exact date of submission has not been confirmed, but they have advanced that it will this December.
This coincides with some of the leaks we have seen from Lenovo phones with frameless screens and holes in the center. In this way, the producer will choose symmetrical design and not drilling to the side that makes us see Huawei with what should be Nova 4 or what Samsung seems to show with the Samsung Galaxy A8 that we saw a few days ago.
Some specifications have been leaked from Lenovo Z5s thanks to information that leaked when they passed the TENAA certifier. What we see is that it will be the first smartphone with Snapdragon 8150 or 855 (i.e., the next Qualcomm advanced processor), which has some additional importance because it will likely support the 5G network and match what Lenovo Chang's vice president said in the summer (also denying that this phone is the Lenovo Z20 Pro because the new model will be Lenovo Z5s).
Besides the processor, what is TENAA let's see is that this will be a cellphone tripled camera and LED flash, which in the filtered image will be integrated in a design similar to the Huawei P20 Pro. The screen is a 6.3-inch panel, a rear fingerprint reader (and not integrated into the screen) and a 3.218 mAh battery, all in the chassis 156.7 x 74.5 x 7.8 mm.
December promises a lot of holes
Although posters only talk about December as we have said, by gossip technician we talk about certain dates: December 4th. Life happens (or not), is the date that is expected to know the new Qualcomm processor we mentioned for Lenovo Z5s, so that it can be double-announced. The day after knowing something about Huawei's proposal, which promised to provide further information on day 3 (ie, an interesting week awaited us).
Currently, Huawei, Samsung and Lenovo seem to at least feel the hole design that we have begun to see with certain patents. On the other hand is an option that has shown us Xiaomi with Mi MIX 3 and its sliding screen, OPPO and Find X with a removable module or Live with a NEX from a similar proposal whose iteration seems to be choosing another path, applying a dual screen and pressing the camera front.
Will we see a cellphone with a hollow screen next week? Will all these designs be practical? Prepare popcorn, gentlemen, this is getting interesting.
