Sony’s brand in smartphones is experiencing a drop in popularity since last few years. There was a time when it had a severe leakage issue amongst smartphone OEMs. The clock has come full circle now, tipsters and leakers do not even actively track Sony for any upcoming phones. However, this year Sony is coming up with a strangely designed phone MWC 2019. The official teaser gives a glimpse that Sony would continue to design ultra-wide or ultra-tall screens in its smartphones.
Sony is projecting to the prospective listeners to “embrace a new perspective” by accepting its newer design. The teaser shows a smooth gradient of colors that provides a peek at the design that might be on the new Sony Xperia smartphones. The details about the company’s press event are equipped with a wide rectangle of colors.
The market has understood it as Sony’s newly trademarked “CinemaWide” display, the existing ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio. Though this form has been restricted to monitors, Sony has been thinking of bringing it to the mobiles.
It is still a mystery how the market will react to a new perspective, but it is this thing with Sony that it tries to be ahead of others in the display technology. Sony was the only manufacturer that had put a 4K display on a smartphone. Introduction of 21:9 screens would make the smartphone quite tall, it may also reduce the user-friendliness of the smartphone.
Now, we have to wait and watch which models will get a wide 21:9 Cinemawide display screen. Rumors are floating that say that Xperia 10 and 10 Plus will be having these screens. Watchers are also saying that a new phone Xperia XZ4 is in the pipeline. All this and more will be revealed on Sony’s MWC 2019 announcement on February 25 at 8:45 a.m. CET (2:45 a.m. ET).
