By all accounts, it looks like Sony’s upcoming smartphone might arrive with the best possible screen to watch videos on.
According to a new leak, this phone will be the Sony Xperia XZ4 and it will feature a 6.5 inch HDR OLED display with a 21:9 display ratio and a QHD+ resolution. That is an impressive 3360 × 1440 pixels.
According to a filing with the European Union Intellectual Property Office, Sony trademarked the CinemaWide name for “smartphones, tablets, displays, application software for smartphones, image processing apparatus, exposed cinematographic films.”
What is CinemaWide exactly, you ask?
That would be a 21:9 aspect ratio, which is normally the ideal aspect ratio for widescreen movies and it comes opposed to the ratio we can most commonly find in smartphones – the 16:9.
The phone might come with Android 9 Pie out of the box and will be powered by the latest Snapdragon 855 processor. In addition to that, it will hold a battery of 4,400mAh under the hood, which would be the perfect size for watching cinema-worthy movies on the device.
We’ll know more about it during the MWC 2019, where Sony will hold a press conference and introduce all of its upcoming Xperia smartphones.
