As per the latest rumors, Sony is coming back to MWC with a number of new products including mid-range, entry-level and a flagship model. So far all rumors indicate Sony will be unveiling Xperia XA3 Lineup, Xperia L3 and the flagship Xperia XZ4. Back in December, the well-known tipster Ice Universe shared alleged protective film coating of Xperia XZ4 which reveals the display aspect ratio is 21:9.
The new aspect ratio is certainly quite awkward as none of the devices has a similar aspect ratio in the market. Today the company files for a trademark of 'CinemaWide' display name at the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). This hints the company is indeed getting ready to announce a phone with the aforementioned aspect ratio.
The trademark confirms Sony will be dubbing the 21:9 display as 'CinemaWide' panel. The first flagship phone with such aspect ratio will be upcoming Xperia XZ4. From what we heard so far the Xperia XZ4 will be featuring a 6.5-inches display panel. It's an OLED panel with Quad HD+ screen resolution of 1440 x 3360 pixels. The device has dual selfie snappers and the only prominent bezel is at the top.
Sony recently rolled out the invites for the February 25th event at the MWC 2019. It will be running on the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 chipset with 6GB RAM. As OS it will be pre-installed with Android Pie. The XZ3 is rumored to have triple rear cameras, the primary sensor will be a 52MP module with f/1.6 aperture. A 4,000mAH battery will keep its lights on.
