gilda, 05 Jan 2014Sony really need to take care of 2 things. First the UI which is to say, boring and ugly as he... moreSony UI is ugly lol now say touchwiz is beautiful and kill me. Think again
Either this or the Find 7. Heres hoping that the display doesn't suck and neither does the speaker.
Anonymous, 05 Jan 2014Wrong. AMOLED only has a power advantage in black. For everything else it consumes more power.... moreYou are totally wrong, go learn more about OLED technology and then come here to screw about it.
Sorry but you know nothing.
I think they gonna put something special on the WiFi only version like real WALKMAN engine which is better than iPod sound engine .. or bionz image processor (hardware)? Or X-Reality plus (hardware)?
I just got the Z1 about a week ago. And now I'm gonna drool over a new flagship I won't be able to afford?? Don't do this to me Sony!
LevizX, 06 Jan 2014WRONG again. SLCD series has always been partly SONY's creation, HTC swithed to JDI/Sharp for ... morecreation or not who manufacturs what.. it's owned 1oo% by Samsung...
S-LCD Corporation - The company was established in April 2004 - as a joint venture between Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd and Sony Corporation
"On January 19, 2012, Sony sold to Samsung all of its shares of S-LCD "
d0es the token fall down now?
Super Smartphone from Super Company
From PS4 to this
I hope to see Sony Xperia Z2,Z3 & Sony Smartwatch 3 in 2014.
I will definitely buy this if it does not have washed out viewing angles like the Xperia Z and Xperia Z1. I really hope they fixed it! :S
I believe the Sirius is Z2, whereas Canopus is the Z Ultra without Cellular capabilities, which should be Sony's new mini tablet.
release the z2 mini at same time with z2 with same specs but 3000mah battery(better if more),720p screen,removable battery(if possible)and thinner bezel(if possible).also dont ditch sd slot and put softkey button rather than onscreen.
Wasn't it part of Sony's strategy from last year that in order to prevent leaks of unannounced models, they will not be announcing new mobile devices at any subsequent CES tradeshows in years to come?
LevizX, 06 Jan 2014You are as wrong as you can get.
Firstly it's not just black, it's all darker colors, LG has ... moreIt's only black that enable significant energy savings. Otherwise the pixels are still on, and they're still less efficient than LCD. Averaged out over the typical smartphone screen, AMOLED uses more power for the same brightness, and that's the bottom line. Split hairs all you want, it doesn't change that fact.
Do you dispute that PenTile saves power? In any case, it's hardly a very good argument in favor of Samsung's displays to insist that they use an inferior subpixel layout so that the screen won't start burning out in a year.
[deleted post]Yeah, with your username of S AMOLED, I'm sure you're very objective about displays.
Seriously dude, AMOLED is not that high tech. There's a reason no other company uses it--it has many drawbacks that, at this time, are not really worth it.
Actually, the codename Sirius (a star) and Canopus (also a star) might give us a hint. Sirius is brighter than Canopus and Canopus is the second, so maybe Canopus is the rumored iPod-like device?
