Sony to release the world’s first 4K display smartphone?

Xperia Z5 Leak 4K

With manufacturers pushing ahead in the mobile display pixel density race, a new report suggests that #Sony might be the first to push the limits even further. According to a new leak, the company will be the first to release a 4K display smartphone in the market. It is said that the Japanese manufacturer will release a phone called the Xperia Z5 Premium, in addition to the #XperiaZ5 and the #XperiaZ5Compact.

The Xperia Z5 and the Z5 Compact will supposedly pack 5.2 inch displays with a 1080p resolution while the Z5 Premium is said to be sporting a 5.5 inch display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, or in other words Ultra HD a.k.a 4K. This will give the handset a remarkable pixel density of 808 ppi, which is beyond what the human eye can discern, but will be massive for the company’s PR campaign.

This is assuming the company will actually go ahead and release the device, which is hard to tell at this point knowing how it’s still a leak. But if Sony were to release a flagship smartphone to make a striking comeback in the mobile industry, this would be it.
