There aren't many like these around, but Nokia has one coming up this month, so I can maintain my brand loyalty ;. A "smart"phone is a nice idea if you have control over the software, and the software will have updates for the years to come.

As I haven't seen that happening, I prefer the phone to be a dumb modem, and keep the smarts on my free-software laptop. Fair enough. I have similar opinions about what I'd ideally like in a phone that differ from what I can generally buy. I want a good front facing camera, I want a good speaker. All reasonable but the question becomes what engineering trade offs are you willing to make to get them?
None of that comes without trade offs. I'm willing to live with a thicker phone to get them. I don't care about the g. The first five are a must to have. Waterproof and replaceable are not at odds end. If you have a protecting screen it only needs to be clipped on but doesn't need to be connected so doesn't need to be waterproof.
The battery only needs a couple of pins for contact with the phone, and the pins can be enclosed in a watertight enclosure. The iPhone X does not have a back or home or programs button and after many months of use I can say they aren't necessary. Fine to have but not required and I haven't found myself wanting them. More buttons are fine but my point is that the minimum required is actually quite minimal. Strictly speaking you are correct but they are VERY difficult to package. Having physical buttons for volume is also something I would think is necessary if you are using the phone as a music player and have for example strapped it onto your hip or arm where you can't see the screen.
I doubt they would make any money trying to sell a high end device that doesn't have that all-important selfie camera. Just ditch the thing. Oh no, I wont be able to take selfies. Good, means I don't have to fucking kill myself. A bezel isn't the end of the world. Yes, I prefer a bezel, because it makes it easier to hold and move around without accidentally triggering a touch. If there's any use for sophisticated touch sensors and AI, it's to distinguish deliberate touches from accidental ones.

Cause the pictures show a big black "notch" that goes all the way across the screen. You must've been looking at a different image than I was - the one I saw was definitely bezel-less. There was a mid-story link to another story about phones with notches, though. Lenovo is the owner of Moto, the all American smartphone company that Google pumped and dumped after collaborating on the Nexus 6.

But the Lenovo Z5 is going the other way: It's truly all-screen, and notch-free. Cheng's teaser post says according to Google Translate that the Lenovo Z5 is the company's new flagship phone. Besides that, the post leaves it pretty vague. All-screen phones look cool, but they challenge the manufacturer to find a place to put front cameras, sensors and other hardware.
That's why we see bezels on some phones and notches on others. It's not clear what Lenovo plans to do with the front camera on the Lenovo Z5. Cheng's post claims that "four technological breakthroughs" and "18 patented technologies" were made for the phone, but doesn't go into details.

One of the first smartphones to launch with an edge-to-edge display was the Xiaomi Mi Mix. It launched with next to no bezel or notch, leaving many to wonder where the earpiece would be. What Xiaomi managed to do was use what it calls "cantilever piezoelectric ceramic acoustic technology. It's possible the Z5 relies on a similar technology, or bone conduction technology found in many headphones and some smartphones. Aside from the front-facing camera and ambient light sensors, the other components that are typically found on the front of smartphones are relatively easy to drag-and-drop to different locations.
For example, the speakers in the Z5 are likely bottom facing and the navigation controls are almost certainly software based.

Differentiate with utilitarian function, nor form, because any real difference from the norm is just late 's tail fins on cars.

Those flagship phones were great 10 years ago but now they only stack useless expensive gimmicks like 3D face recognition and 1mm thinner whatever. From the poster's username, it sounds like he's in Australia. It's likely that this phone will not work on all US carriers. Verizon doesn't care much about SIMs. And only 0.
Phones with a dual SIM are pretty rare in the US; my guess is he's in another country or using an imported phone, as tons of models sold in Asia have them. Don't feed the troll Score: 2. All of thos.
