A launch event will be held in Beijing, China.

Ever since the LG G6 debuted last year, OEMs have been in a race to trim down bezels on smartphones as much as possible. Samsung’s got its Infinity Displays, Apple paved the way for the infamous notch with the iPhone X, and now Lenovo’s begun teasing its Z5 handset that hints at a phone that’s truly bezel-free with no notch in sight.

A press invite that recently went out invites the media to an event that’ll be held on June 5, 2018, in Beijing, China. This is where Lenovo will unveil the Z5 for the first time, and while specifics on the device are still up in the air, we do know that it boasts an impressive screen-to-body ratio of 95%.

We’re ecstatic to learn more about the Z5, but don’t get your hopes up about owning one if you reside in the Western part of the world. Lenovo-branded phones typically don’t come to the U.S., but considering that Lenovo owns the more widely available Moto phones, it could be possible that the Z5’s tech creeps over to them in the not-too-distant future.

Don’t forget, the Z5 isn’t the only phone of its kind that’ll be revealed next month. A week later, Vivo will announce the consumer version of its Apex phone that was debuted at MWC this past February. That phone also features a screen-to-body ratio of more than 90%, and also includes things like an in-screen fingerprint sensor and selfie camera that pops out of the top frame.

Although these first few all-screen phones will likely get limited releases, it’s still exciting to see them actually come to market.
