I believe we'll have to see personally to make judgments. Somethings criticised earlier can definitely claim a big round of applause later on.


I am more in doubt though:

To ensure that brightness increases and the image is not washed out, the 3 color sub-pixels must be made brighter.... not an additional white pixel.

Let's hope it turns out well. :)

What we know for sure is that Sony won't use this display because they used to pack crap into their flagship devices.

It's the same. 1080x1920 is equal to 1920x1080. 1080 speaks about the resolution of the screen horizontally and 1920 vertically then that's where you will get the PPI or pixel density depending on the size of the screen.

RGB LCD? An ancient tech with nothing special.
