I like it. Its is perfect. 21:9 will make the 6.4 inch display narrower and easier to hold in one hand. Its not any bigger than S8+ 6.2 inch. However, I do expect this new 21:9 ratio will be narrower than the 18:9. The 1080p resolution doesnt really bother me either. It will be FHD+ anyway. That means more than 344ppi in the original Z Ultra; probably close to 400ppi. The SD660 quite snappy according to the specs on paper. Hope it will be affordable. The first move to bezel less Sony.
AnonymouseX, 02 May 2017While this is lovely, I only want to see an XZs/XZ Premium with way smaller bezels
Not S8/S8+... moreyeah, it's kinda insane because the Galaxy S8 is thinner and overall feels like a smaller phone than the Xperia XZ.
Sony just need to put the fingerprint sensor on the back, even though i really like it on the side.

Not S8/S8+ level, but slightly more than G6 level will do (80% will be nice)
Get rid of side bezels already just like the XA series
Fingerprint Scanner can just be adjusted lower than the LCD screen since it's not too thick as we're thinking, and that extra thickness addition would definitely help for the increase of battery capacity
I saw this more than 1 month ago... It is a concept.
This has the design used last year, same of X and X Performance.
All phones this year have XZ style...
IMO Sony should just add capacitive buttons to the existing design to make use of the bezel space and allow full use of the 16:9 screen.

There is no need to make smartphones unnecessarily look like lightsaber, unless its intended to be used like that. 16:9 aspect ratio is JUST PERFECT for enjoying wide angle videos and further widening is NOT REQUIRED at all.
Sony can simply cut out its THICK Bezel on all sides and remove logo from its earpiece to make it look like extra large widescreen. But, how come those idiots will understand this in era of copycat.
Anonymous, 02 May 2017Cool phone. Design is elegant and stylish unlike Samsung's soap girly design.G6 gas a sturdy design.
Frankly, I don't like the push towards longer screens, especially when we had a widely-used standard in 16:9. First LG, then Samsung, now Apple and Sony are rumoured to jump into the trend too.
I don't need smartphone that look like lightsabers, especially when I already own the latter! :P

Movies in cinemas are in 21:9 ratio, but those movies are originally in 16:9 ratio and were just upscaled to that ratio, so I guess this is not a bad idea at all
This large screen with wide ratio would be a huge help for most
For instance, we can now multitask with 3 apps at once instead of only just 2
In the camera, other than we can have a large space for a lot of manual controls, we can split the screen into two modes: Photo and Video, which means we can take photos while recording videos, because the current solution today is just a screenshot of the video, which isn't as high quality as the true camera resolution (video only uses up to 8mp)
M.G, 02 May 2017Why? just why are the companies started giving such narrow and taller screens! whats the point... moretall n narrow is for easier to grab with hand and can bigger screen....... kindergarden student also know use some thinking
I would prefer the Univisium aspect ratio (18:9/2:1) since it actually has some industry support and makes things a lot simpler.
It has support from LG with the G6. Also Netflix(House of Cards)
horrible design ! i can't believe it so ugly to be true,the future is for chinese OEM.
i used to be a sony fan but this is shit, a big long one :$.
TeamAndroid, 02 May 2017sigh ... it's just a concept made by some ludicrous fanboy and it looks like crap .YEs it is just a concept....sony will stay with 16;9 aspect ratio
