It's a game featuring a dinosaur that hops over cacti (and, eventually, other dinosaurs), in which your score increases as you progress through a pixelated desert. Until recently, that score was lost when you stopped playing, but as of Chrome version 72, it's finally saved — and it even syncs between your devices.<div class="clear"></div> <a href="https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/11/30/show-off-your-chrome-dino-game-skills-with-the-arrival-of-cross-device-high-score-sync/" class="read-more">Read More</a></p><p><a href='https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/11/30/show-off-your-chrome-dino-game-skills-with-the-arrival-of-cross-device-high-score-sync/'>Show off your Chrome dino-game skills with the...

At least, we didn't until today: <a href="https://sparrowsnews.com/2018/11/29/exclusive-lenovo-z5s-model-surfaces-hands-on/">Sparrow News</a> seems to have gotten its hands on real-life (if slightly potato) photos and video of Lenovo's Z5S, which features such a circular cutout.
