Sony is reportedly also working on its next flagship smartphone just like other manufacturers. Going by the leaks, this smartphone could be Xperia XZ4 and it may bring many new things, including a completely new screen aspect ratio. We are already having some CAD renders of the Sony Xperia XZ4 and some key specifications have also been leaked earlier this month.
Contrary to other smartphones in rumors these days, the launch of the Xperia XZ4 may happen a bit late but it’s good to see that we are already getting key details on the same. However, hearsays suggest the Xperia XZ4 may launch in MWC 2019 event. Well, we keep this aside and go with what we have for discussion now.
According to Ice Universe on Twitter, the Sony Xperia XZ 4 will have the 21:9 aspect ratio and this will allow the users to watch more content. The source also shows off the screen protector that measures in at a 21:9 aspect ratio. There are thin bezels on the top and the bottom. The top seems to be accommodating the cutouts for the dual selfie cameras and other basic things.
Talking about the aspect ratios, the 21:9 is going to be the very latest and it may give rise to a new trend soon. This year brought slimmer and taller form factors with 18:9, 18.5:9, 19:9, and 19.5:9 aspect ratios. And, now this even bigger aspect ratio will offer a taller canvas to the devices so that they could show more content.
The source has also put a conceptualized image showing how the display may look like, accommodating more content.
Let’s wait for more information to come.
