Lenovo Z5s live image shows display cut-out for the selfie camera, launch confirmed for December

“Lenovo Z5s will not only be the first smartphone from the brand to feature a triple rear camera setup but also the first to have a hole in the display for the camera”

Lenovo Z5s was recently confirmed officially as the triple camera smartphone the Chinese brand is working on. Now a couple of new live images have appeared online, showing that the smartphone will also have a small cutout in the display to house the camera and sensors. This is the new approach that smartphone vendors are following to ensure full-screen displays without incorporating the notch.

However, Huawei last week confirmed it will be launching the Nova 4 phone with a small cutout in the display in December, though no date has been set for the event yet.
