Is Sony Using A 21:9 Display For Future Xperia Phones?


Is Sony using a 21:9 display for future Xperia phones?

Sony Mobile adopted a taller skinny display in some of its 2018 Xperia smartphones for the first time. Sony opted for displays with a 2:1 QHD+ resolution in these phones, as opposed to displays with a more traditional 16:9 display ratio as used previously. However, Sony could be looking to go with even skinnier displays in 2019.

There has been some images of what is purported to be a screen protector for the upcoming 'XZ4’ doing the rounds – highlighting thinner bezels and a tall display. We can’t vouch for the authenticity of the images, but it did make us wonder whether this is something Xperia fans would look forward to? It would make it more difficult to reach certain parts of the display if it was taller and skinnier. What are your thoughts – would you buy it? Let us know in the comments below.

The advantage of 21:9 is that it can display more content and perfectly display 21:9 movies. pic.twitter.com/vruLP1FnAK
