Anonymous, 30 May 2019I think fordables are waste of time. Those screens wont last 1,5 year. They cost more than... moreit's their first attempt. and samsung most likely wont give up that easily on foldables because, unlike huawei or other oems, they have been working on it for almost a decade now (since 2011). we have been stuck with rectangular brick design for sometime now, and the market is looking into another form factor. most tech reviewers think foldables are it. no, not bezelless nor buttonless because those are still rectangular bricks. we are still years behind the possibility of real holographic displays (the ones that are suspended in mid-air unlike red's), so really the next form factor are foldables or rollables.

I'm afraid that you're back at it again at making false assumptions that nobody ever claimed lol.
Anonymous, 30 May 2019Mate 20X has 1cm more than Xperia 1 , people do not complain.
That is weird .... Mate 20 X: 7.2" 174.6 x 85.4 x 8.2 mm (6.87 x 3.36 x 0.32 in)
Xperia 1: 6.5" 167 x 72 x 8.2 mm (6.57 x 2.83 x 0.32 in)
The Mate 20 X is 1.3 cm wider and less than 1cm taller. People that buy the Mate 20 X want a phablet and buy it as that type of phone. The Xperia 1 was supposed to be a regular phone. Now it's a spawn, practically as tall as a phablet and narrow as an old 4.8" 16: 9, a full-blown giraffe neck.

They cost more than phone/tablet combo ....
Samsung is the #1 seller, anyway Galaxy F will fail.
Other wont sell either.
Pompompom, 30 May 2019The best "follower" and the best "copier".
Huawei is much better.. but sadly usa kill it, too bad.Lets see how Sony "copies" according to you ....
First android to have glass panel.
First IP68 with capless USB
Bokeh with one cam only in 2014
Option to use rear and front cam at same time since Z phones.
Photo with sound since Z phones
4k screen, 4K HDR screen, 4K HDR oled screen, 10bit screens, 120Hz since X (even XA2 has) , 144Hz for XZ2 Premium.
First WRGB screen ( xperia P) = tech called white magic
First to reach BT2020 colour gamut ( way beyond DCI-P3)
Stacked CMOS copied by Samsung
960fps copied by Samsung and those cheap chinese that offer fake 960fps
Predective Capture (copied by Google poor feature called TopShot that cant even use AF nor full resolution)
Only brand that offers Burst with AF
Triluminos ( no other brands use quantum dots on cellphones)
Dedicated video recording app
Scene recognition copied by many that call it AI
Tablets with IP rating
21:9 video recording that was already copied
4K HDR Hybrid Log Gamma recording
There are two brands out there (not going to name them, you can guess) that have much more ability to copy other than the Mystique of X-Men.
where are the sony fanboys who were rabidly bashing samsung and huawei about foldables? see, i myself hate to see sony mobile fold out from alot of markets because i used to be a fan as well, but the company was isolating itself too much from what the market actually wanted. instead they tried to push "innovations" that only their dwindling number of fans can appreciate. sony fans defended the 21:9 like it's the next best thing, and another soon-to-be-out-of-the-business oem sure copied the aspect ratio, but it ended up as one more nail to sony mobile's coffin. here- after those teases on foldables, the market sure does crave for foldables now, and with sony working on such a device, i hope this would pave for their comeback.

Depending on the users needs, yes a bigger screen can be more useful. 2 in 1 devices are a premium as they perform both functions obviously so they don't need to waste space for another device.

When phones screen get so big that they need to start making foldable phones to fit in your pocket. Why not just make smaller dimensions for the phones with full screen and no bezels.
But no we need a 32inch screens folded in our pockets just cause bigger is better ?
These are not phones anymore and should be renamed to tablets or what ever that has a phone app on them what you dont use much cause the point is bigger screen as a pocket computer and not a phone
Shab, 30 May 2019Sony is the best allways The best "follower" and the best "copier".

Cir90, 30 May 2019I hope it is not a fudge like Samsung's Of course it won't.
Sony will "Reuse" samsung's (or huawei's) design and made few modifications to increase the durability.
This is their intention from the beginning. To Let samsung (and huawei) waste money to research foldables, Copy the finished products, And do a little modification.
Y know... sony's mobile division dont have much money..
NipponFan, 30 May 2019It might be"" late" "for launch but it will be a quality product, Japanese design quality guaranteedNope.
Jap's electronics business is in great danger. These days.. korea and china can produce better electronic devices with faster innovations.
Where is that sonyfanboy (vV5 smartshooter) who often said foldable is bad, foldable is not durable, foldable is useless, etc etc ?
He can change his mind again now, just like what he did after sony decided to do less-bezel and use oled.
