regs, 06 Feb 2018You can easily fit 5'' 18:9 screen into 128x64 mm. That would be ideal.Absolutey!
134 mm is a bit too much. It's a whole cm taller than Compacts.
18:9 5'' is 113.6 mm × 56.8 mm, meaning top and bottom bezels are giant - 1 cm each and 4 mm for edge bezels. Which is still a lot. It's not a bezeless device. It's just a taller Compact. That's it. Still with all that giant bezels.
Slowny is late to the race as usual and they're not bringing anything new to the table in terms of innovations and are blatantly copying the competition.
Well, if people are practical, yes, but I read enough comments to know this trend could be more than just a trend. But I agree 16:9 is the best aspect ratio for any display.
If Sony can interpret that well this could be a game changer for them in resurrecting their sinking sales. Correct ergonomics, nice contemporary styling, upto date works and performance and great Camera experiece are on most buyers preferences. Dont be shy to imitate, copy or borrow the ingredients of a perfect recipe. I hope Sony people can understand English also besides Japanese to make sense of this. Horses for courses in different body sizes as demand be, is sure to put them back.

Your logic is flawed. These specs suggest a 16:9 screen. If it was indeed 18:9 then it would have huge bezels, like the old one since it would have same width screen on a same width phone... Im guessing this will be something like a smaller xa2 design
Weiman, 02 Feb 2018Why no 16:9 bezel-less phones? Height is a bigger problem for pocketability than width.Holdability is more of an concern than pocketability.
I hope Sony does a great thing again. Miss you so much Sony. Love Sony. Don't forget to build the camera and software the best this time. I wish you Sony. Love Sony

[deleted post]Samsung do the wrong trends to use 18:9 misleaded comsumer and then they suggest and feedback Sony to do 18:9 then the Samsung trolls come here to giving negative comments.
It would be nice if they keep the box shape and add the 18:9 aspect ratio. That would be my perfect phone.
yee, 01 Feb 2018let's hope this change will remove ugly chens from sony devices.
currently sony devices looki... moreI'm the opposite, I really like the way they look.
All phones are merging into looking the same, and also being difficult to distinguish from the front.
Horses for courses, as they say.
