TheProperGentleman, 16 Jan 2018If this thing fixes Sony's previous issues (camera, bezels, out-dated software design, etc.) I... moreAnd they continue to nail with software updates the January security patche was enrolled on the xz x performance and i got it already
I am sad that even Sony will be bringing out phones with that ugly 18:9 aspect ratio. I hate it so much I can't put it into words how much I hate the narrow and tall screens.
RIP aspect ratio :(
But where is the RGBI sensor and the Lazer aut-focus?? The fingerprint scanner??
If all that is true and FPS is side mounted - I'll buy it definitely!
Hate rounded corners on Samsung and iPhone.
My choice, my taste.

Like Samsung oled.
No other can make better sensors.
Even Nikon buy from them.

It is the selfie of XA Ultra.
There is a list of sensors available for sale.
They can set exclusive contracts.
But cant ask to make a sensor the way they want.
Sony wont give others a sensor better than used on their own phones. A bigger sensor with bigger pixels and DRAM inside.
If Sony Mobile does not extract full power of imx300/imx400 is their fault.
Moto Z Play has bad camera, even androidpit says that.
They love Motorola
The photo is a concept.
One of flagship might have design similar to LG G4, but higher screen to body ratio.
Anonymous, 16 Jan 2018Design is gorgeous.So glad it's not rounded corner design...
Not digging the dots design on the speaker, hmm, unsure on center camera, but spec is amazing!

It was specificly designed for them. Plus, there is omnivision which supplies excellent sensors (they proved to be so on moto Z play - really great perf for the class) so they can ask to make any sensor they want. Esp huge OEMs like Samsung/Apple. All of them use custom sensors, such thing also did LG with G4's sensor - 16*9 aspect ratio is something no one else had permission to

They dont have choice.
They dont choose the specs, they pick what is available.
Bezelless display and 3.5 mm jack, or it can't compete with Sammy, LG and others

It will be very tempting if it will really look like that..
love the front ... Only one strange thing,the Sony name is at the bottom.
18 mp with 1.33 pixel size sounds like 1/2 sensor type. It would be really great for manufactures to go to that sensor type in next-gen phones. Let's hope sony eventually imply kind of image stacking algorithm to its photo processing. Otherwise nothing will help them compete other OEMs
