Larry638, 30 Nov 2017Just read Qualcomm SD845 SoC isn't producted by Samsung but instead by TSMC in another article... moreImo Samsung is not able to hoard the chips because they manufacture them but because they are the single largest client of qualcomm.
If that's how it will look, you will be mine, you beauty. Just the right amount of bezels is all I need.
good job sony.
LOL. where are those fanboys who said that bezelless is bad? and they need to hold bezel while gaming?
so.. sony listen to us (the haters) and ignore the fanboys. good job sony ;-) dont listen to your fanboys
Apple and sony, 30 Nov 2017I had one for this reason only. It was a incredible device. 76% stb ratio. 131mm and you had a... moreI totally miss my ZL also. Small bezels, large screen, small body size.
The screenshot doesn't say the phone is bezel-less.
And the dimensions are exactly the same as the XZ1. So either the bezels are still big, or this is an 18:9 screen ratio. Personally It's not a ZL successor until the bezels small, screen large, and BODY SMALL. The ZL was only 131.6MM in length. That's why the bezels were small. This leak says 149MM. This is still a very tall phone.
May SOny not as stubborn as NOKIA b4. Stuck with symbian look what happened? SOny stuck with poor bezel. Finally, they're listening and learning. Shift now or regret later...
Anonymous, 30 Nov 2017For these ignorant ppl, Sony had high screen body ratio Xperia ZL back Jan 2013... 'bezeless' ... moreI had one for this reason only. It was a incredible device. 76% stb ratio. 131mm and you had a5 inch screen.
FeederEater, 30 Nov 2017Sony and bezel-less just dont go togetherXperia ZL says what's up
Love Sony, You touch my heart now, the time I am waiting is coming now, haha Love Sony bezeless. and Sony is the king of Very Good Smart Phone. Sony is a really kind company that no need to competition with other phone, Sony is staying Unique in This World. Love Sony.
Just read Qualcomm SD845 SoC isn't producted by Samsung but instead by TSMC in another article, then why is Sony releasing it's next Xperia XZ Premium successor with SD835 chipset then? Is it because Samsung also releases it's next flagship with it's own Exynos 9810 an equivilent to SD845? I don't think Sony is in direct competition with Samsung on who outs their flagship first like the rivalry with LG, or is Samsung hoarding all the new chips again?
I can see no justification for an upgrade to this Sony XZP successor because of "bezelless" while everything else stayed the same even the SD SoC, such "negligible" improvement is not worth Sony's efford to release it.
FinnishInquisition, 30 Nov 2017You don't need a Samsung display for colour accuracy though, nor do you need OLED's on everything.True blacks make a huge difference
FinnishInquisition, 30 Nov 2017If its true Samsung are abusing their position to receive favourable treatment from Qualcomm, ... moreSo if you run a dairy, you can't drink it's milk or consume milk products? You need to pay billions of dollars for that?
For these ignorant ppl, Sony had high screen body ratio Xperia ZL back Jan 2013... 'bezeless' is nothing 'high-tech' but a way of keeping the price and demand of unsurprising and uninspiring 'technologies (actually marketing)'. Tho it worked well, most of ppl don't know what's behind, neither can they think independently.
Samsung still hogging all the first batch of SD845 but still gonna lag/hang/reboot itself up.

Ashuff, 30 Nov 2017what?! only now Sony is open their eyes?! this reminds me of a song by Justin Timberlate calle... more18:9 is the a gimmick going around, stay with the 16:9 and say no to black bars
ProJames, 30 Nov 2017Okay mister FinnishInquisition... I do not appreciate the fact that this device will not be us... moreYou don't need a Samsung display for colour accuracy though, nor do you need OLED's on everything.
