The race to have the most full-screen smartphone, without frames or elements that distract the user’s attention, is making manufacturers devise new formulas to incorporate the front sensor. We have already seen mobile phones with notches, screen holes or retractable cameras that pops up when making a selfie. Lenovo would go a step further and would have registered several patents whose sketches reveal a terminal with different types of sliding camera.
Lenovo patent reveals a new slider phone with round camera
The new patents granted are for different types of sliding mechanisms, which, when they surface, expose a forward-facing camera module. It is not something new, we can say that it would be a design very similar to that of the current Lenovo Z5 Pro. Which landed with a fairly simple sliding camera, or even that of the Samsung Galaxy A80, although without being rotary. That is, this sliding system would be hidden in the terminal itself. And would have nothing to do, a priori, with the main sensor.
Apart from this, not much is known about the smartphones that would include this system in terms of specifications and features. Sources indicate that the devices could be the successors of the Lenovo Z5 Pro and Z5 Pro GT. Which, as we say, landed with a sliding front camera. Both phones were announced last November. So it is possible that until the end of the year we do not have official information about their successors.
In addition to this sliding camera system. The Lenovo Z5 Pro features a 6.39-inch AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution. A 16 + 24 MP dual camera with f/1.8 aperture. As well as Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, accompanied by 6 GB of RAM. This model also includes a 3,500 mAh battery with fast charge and a fingerprint reader on the screen.
