They are struggling with losses and lack of sales in mobile divisions.
Lot of Sony brand loyalists on this website yet their sales don't reflect the same story.
YUKI93, 21 Mar 2020Xperia 1 don't have 4K screen. I refuse to acknowledge 1644px as 4K UHD resolution.Exactly, in addition to that, it is Locked at 60hz.
Not bright enough compared to other panels.
Less power efficiency compared to other panels.
AlexP, 23 Mar 2020foldable is useless design You can't see the whole pictureHow is your Samsung Galaxy S7 ? ... Still outperforming all Xperias, even in 2020 ?

Anonymous, 21 Mar 2020When will sony stop making ugy phone?Till they stop getting best design award
Senseurheart Kimochi, 22 Mar 2020It doesn't matter, late better than none! But actually 2020 still None. Samsung and the other sony's competitors can easily make 4k if they want, since xperia's screen is made by samsung/lg.
But those competitors choose not to do it, because they know it is useless. And they choose to jump to foldables.
Sony cant afford to implement foldable. 2020 still none.
Speaking about screen.. Oppo already has a working prototype of "under the screen" camera.
So sad.. even china competitor can innovate better than sony.
Sony can only wait.. and do nothing.
Xperia Pro should be a sold to the public. I want it!
Just waiting to see some review of thus phone, if everything goes well I'm going for it.
Everything is really good about this phone plus I really liked the unique design and 21:9 aspect ratio of it, if only it had 5000 mAh battery.

Senseurheart Kimochi, 20 Mar 2020I don't think Samsung will let their user watching the 8K video on their 2K smartphone screen.... moreOfcourse samsung will probably jump to 4k on their foldable phone/tablet which has larger screen.
But not on their non-foldable phone.
Anonymous, 21 Mar 2020Eww.. so uglyYou need to stay clear of reflective surfaces my friend.
No one will buy it.

Samsung has 6.9 inches display compared to Sony 6.5 inches. Remember these sizes are diagonal measurement. In the end Sony will have the best display no matter what. There's no one in the market that can beat Sony in display.
AnonD-921183, 21 Mar 2020But it is better HD than 3k Samsung has on S20 Ultra. So indeed Sony has the best displayIt is 4K. 4K resolution definitions are not standardized, so are left to companies to define between themselves.
UHD 4K is 3840 x 2160, but defined for 16:9 aspect.
WQHD (not 4K, but 4xHD) is 2560x1440, defined for 21:9 aspect.
Xperia is 3840x1644, 21:9, and that res has no proper definition. It is vertically more than WQHD 21:9 and less than defined UHD 4K for 16:9.
As it is not defined, and inbetween those two definitions, horizontal pixel count can be taken into consideration, so it can be called a 4K widescreen res.
High resolution video coupled with 360 surround audio will make movie watching perfect. I really want this phone. I'll wait for reviews though.
Is it you Pro, 21 Mar 20204k on tiny screen is useless. 4k is great for larger screen like tablet/tvWho cares? All that I know is I can watch 4K movies on my phone.
Senseurheart Kimochi, 21 Mar 2020You watch 4K TV the distance about 7 feet, but when you watch 4K display on a smartphone is ar... moreAgreed, handheld mobile screen distance is about same as some 3/4 m TV screen distance.
Here you got me checking, holding up my phone at half arm length and comparing screen size to my 55 inch 4k TV that is about 3.5 m away from the couch. :)
Yeah, its the same.
So if one enjoys/discerns 4K sharpness on their TV, one should also enjoy/discern 4K sharpness on their smartphone.
Its only logical. ;)
