For instance, manufacturers could've achieved the same, or even better telephoto results, with a single large sensor with adequately high resolution. 40MP 1/1.7" sensor could be downscaled up to 5x without any major loss in quality, but OEMs pursue to put mediocre tiny secondary cameras instead of actually making the primary one a great one.
4 cameras is just a whole new level of insanity. A great software doesn't need an unnecessary depth sensor to achieve natural background blur effect. Google Camera from the Pixel 2 (which is now being widely ported to hundreds of other Android devices) proves how much a great processing can do. Even Apple figured this out and decided to use just one camera for taking portraits.
Wide angle is probably the only thing that would make sense to me, so why do most flagships make telephoto as secondary camera instead of this??
Now let's move to TVs. I have seen curved and flat TVs side-by-side, and for the most part, both do the same exact job, but the flat one allows the viewers to see the display even at near 180° viewing angle. The curved TV makes the viewing angle to be practically less than what the flat screen offers. Sure it looks nice, but it's all about a choice; looks or function. Besides, what would I need a curved TV for?? Like I've said, it pretty much has no difference as to a flat TV, but price increases for the idea, so congratulations for overpaying for what you'd actually use your TV for.
They took longer to respond to bezel less, but they did it well. This XA3 rendering just shows how fantastic their own engineering is. And would you please try to applaud the lack of notch for a short moment??
When talking about 'overpriced,' Apple simply can't be defeated. A $900 XZ3 already gives me a QHD+ HDR OLED screen and 3210mAh battery, while a $1400 Xs Max barely has passes FHD+ and a tiny 3200mAh battery (average endurance).

They're either a useless depth sensor or a mediocre telephoto. Theres only a handful of manufactures that are making good dual camera phones. There's a reason why the pixel has still one of the best cameras you can find.
People are beginning to move from dual camera to triple and quad camera set up. Sony always very late due to lack of innovation. Same thing is happening in their television industry, they couldn't put out a curve display television. They couldn't trim their mobile bezels cause they lack innovation. Sony over priced and over hyped company. Selling products off past glory..
After doing some math, I guess it's gonna be 5,8" 19,5:9.
That way the measurements and the render image fit

Second, who even plays MKX Mobile? The console and PC version is way more fun (obviously)
Third, my brother has the XA1, and his battery is fine, he just doesn't game

Everyone thinks the L is horrible, and I must say, Sony's cheapest phones are not good at all (L and E series). But all others are amazing!

I think Sony can improve their sales if they make there new smart phones slim,as they were earlier.

Zoso, 03 Oct 2018Not much point in stereo speakers an inch apart. I doubt those are stereo speakers. Have you seen the iPhone? One is a speaker, second is a microphone (I think)
Anonymous, 02 Oct 2018I never use the NFC chip or Face Unlock either. Companies should remove that feature from phones.Plus, face unlock is software, and NFC hardly takes up any space on the phone, it's just a chip. A headphone jack is a giant hole

Fayth, 03 Oct 2018haha true they just too ashamed to admit that deep inside, there's Sony in their heartSony is in the hearts of it's most loyal fans, and many people who have tried Sony never left them. My friend and his family all have Xperia phones (because I suggested them to buy them), and they are still upgrading to newer Xperia phones to this day.
Fayth, 03 Oct 2018people care about Sony, they see Sony article and clickd, and even care to comments :)They say Sony is dead etc, but Sony articles are one of the most clicked. Plus, the XZ Premium was in the top 10 by fans for quite a long time. Sony is rocking!

Looking at this rendering, it appears that there's actually a button above the power button/fingerprint scanner. It would be weird that they would make a separate button for the power key instead of merging it into the scanner, but it would be weird to have a camera shutter key in that location as well. This may not be the final one, or maybe just an error in the creator's part.
