NipponFan, 07 Jan 2020I also want replacement for my Xperia compact Also to replace s10e, under 14cm
.alpha, 07 Jan 2020Need a much wider screen to make it 6.9" or 7"... which would make the phone too wide for some people's hands ...
Sony still has 10 month for a new Compact .. if not, I will buy the Motorola Razr.

But the main problem is the price. And regional (un)availability. Samsung just gives me all of it for the less money. Not to mention Xiaomi etc
Really hoping this is true.
Xperia 1 just needed these upgrades to be the perfect smartphone for just about everyone.
I mean, what's to hate about this phone? The display is clear of any obtrusive cutouts, and that alone makes it a winner for me already.
Phone looks great, but Sony, pls don't spoil the specs by putting a less than 4000mh battery

They fixed it for XZ2.
Also it does better when phone is vertical (it is stupid to do bokeh in ladscape mode).
I have a photo of a clown toy that is extremely good for 8MP.
Bokeh is waste of time. All phones have same issues. No matter the Focal Length and ToF.
Bringing back the front-facing stereo speakers AND headphone jack!? Good Lord, if this thing comes with a 2K+ display and 4,500mAH+ battery, I'm all over this!
Love the Community, 07 Jan 2020For those who think that 4000mah is inefficient? You don't know Sony. Sony is well known for t... moreBattery optimisation is one of the strongest point of Sony the Xperia xz1 had such high endurance rating with a tiny 2700 may cell and an 1080p display
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2020https://androidnext.info/?p=1423I hope they at least has an option 35mm with fast aperture. It'll be perfect for portraits!
Taking that approach will steer away from others, but people with photography skills will be pleased with it.
Surprise it has the 5x periscope camera. Well it will be good for sports watching from stadium. But I prefer the 3x (85mm) more. Perfect for street photography.

So yes, with the help of ToF, its one of the 'computational photography' meaning.
Sandesh, 07 Jan 2020Minimum bezels are fine why are they using wired notches.What notch? no notch here. You should Go to Chinese phone article.
Shui8, 07 Jan 2020Like it or not, using Tof to create bokeh already called as 'computational photography'.

When people say computational, usually they are talking about fake looking HDR photos.
That is why I said that.
I suspect the 64MP is 2x or 3x zoom.
But also could be the wide, while 12 as monochrome.
Nobody knows for sure.
Anonymous, 07 Jan 2020ToF is probably just for bokeh.
No, they wont adopt heavily/overprocessed/fake looking HDR ph... moreLike it or not, using Tof to create bokeh already called as 'computational photography'.
No, dont overdone it as Samsung did, but play with it a bit in order to compensate actual camera as smartphone camera hardware are limited.
