Lenovo Z5S hands-on video shows off punch-hole camera cutout

The smartphone notch isn’t going to last much longer. As quickly as the notch came into fruition, it looks like OEMs are quickly racing to replace the notch with the punch-hole camera cutout. Samsung and Huawei are poised to release the first devices with a punch-hole display, but they’re not the only ones working with the new display technology. A newly-leaked video of the Lenovo Z5S has surfaced which shows off its punch-hole cutout for the front-facing camera.

The punch hole on the Lenovo Z5S’ display is perfectly centered, dividing the status icons on the right from the notifications on the left. While this setup mimics the minimalist notches we’ve seen on the OnePlus 6T and the Essential PH1 (the first device to show off a display notch), Huawei and Samsung will likely be placing their punch-hole for the front camera in the top left corner of the display.
