Guys !! human eye can't see any difference beyond 300ppi from 1 foot distance from screen. 1080p doesn't make any sense for a small screen. I mean 1080p for a small screen is meaningless, it just drains juice. 720 or 1080 have no difference on a small screen.

Sei Sohai, 07 Jul 2017I think Sony wanted to get out of business. Who still uses a 720p? Sony is so lost nowadays Don't worry either 720p or 1080p Sony will be still fine. Because Sony have X-reality, but everything is too early to say, shall we wait more information to be released and be positive mindsets on today's technology or let's see future's technology.
Tann Hauser, 09 Jul 2017Great find! Now there it is, a compact screen sized flagship phone for these "only 720p on 720p in smaller display must have more juice, while the 1080p for smaller display is juice sucker monster, it also doesn't have technology to change the downscale and upscale.

Arengium, 08 Jul 2017I might have missed that one but nothing else about the phone besides the latest android offer... moreIt's only the screen resolution which isn't "flagship level".
Screen quality, camera, chipset, storage will be.
We know nothing of the build materials, but I would definitely guess gorilla glass 5 on the front.
balonyzed, 07 Jul 2017Since when is SD835 low/mid tier? I might have missed that one but nothing else about the phone besides the latest android offering is flagship-grade which really doesn't justify the high price. It should cost 350 max.

Pixel like hdr mode and you've got damn good imagery.
