Almost all mobile phone sell in Japan are waterproof. With removable battery and non fingerprint magnet backcover, this is way better than Z/ZL.

QLEDs bring numerous benefits to the solid state lighting and display markets, including:

Pure color -- Will deliver 30-40% luminance efficiency advantage over organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) at the same color point.

Low power consumption -- QLEDs have the potential to be more than twice as power efficient as OLEDs at the same color purity.

Low-cost manufacture -- The ability to print large-area QLEDs on ultra-thin flexible substrates will reduce luminaire manufacturing cost.

Ultrathin, transparent, flexible form factors -- QLEDs will enable designers to develop new display and lighting forms not possible with existing technologies.

do you know JAPAN DISPLAY INC (JDI)its The merged businesses between Sony mobile display. toshiba mobile display and hitachi display

JDI have new screen technology like
IPS LCD with RGBW (same thechnology like Xperia P White magic) it have high contrast ratio of 2000:1, about 178 degrees viewing angle,with low power consumption that is approximately 50% less.

JDI also have OLEDS Technology
The OLEDs panel uses the same red, green, blue, and white sub pixels
The panel's maximum screen luminance with an all-white signal is 400-500cd/m2.
It has a contrast ratio higher than 10,000:1
and about 90% color gamut on NTSC standards. But Japan Display aims to increase the color gamut to 100% before the volume production.

if you compare it with samsung super amoled (Galaxy S4)
Samsung super amoled 287 cd/m2 vs JDI OLEDs 400-500cd/m2

Colour Gamut:
Samsung super amoled 132% Standard Mode 122% Movie Mode vs JDI OLEDs 90% (Note that Too Large a Color Gamut is visually worse than Too Small and 100% mean accurate colour)

SONY will have many great diplay option by the end of this year or by 2014

Spending design and production effort just to produce limited number of phone for 1 carrier is stupid. That's why Apple doesn't do it then have big profit.
