Sony Xperia XA and Xperia XA Ultra have already received their 2017 successors, but Sony has something even bigger than the Xperia XA1 Ultra, which has a monstrous 6-inch display screen, same as the XA Ultra.
According to the latest reports, the Japanese tech giant is working on a new Sony Xperia X Ultra phablet that is set to redefine the smartphone display screen, more than what has already happened with the LG G6 and Samsung Galaxy S8.
Before 2017, smartphone display screens had a standard aspect ratio of 16:9. However, when the LG G6 was announced, it came in with something different – an aspect ratio of 18:9. This means that the display screen is now taller than usual, but the rest of the measurements remain the unchanged. When Samsung Galaxy S8 was unwrapped, it debuted an even better aspect ratio of 18.5:9, which is not very different from what the G6 brings to the table.
Now, fresh reports claim that there’s a new Sony Xperia X Ultra that will sport a massive aspect ratio of 21:9. This means you get a display screen that is even much taller than what you get on the Galaxy S8 and LG G6. Apparently, this display screen will have 6.45 inches of real estate, almost same as what was found on the Xperia Z Ultra.
At the moment, the resolution is not yet confirmed. But looking at Sony’s past history with non-flagship handsets, you can expect to see a 1080p resolution, probably with more pixels in order to make it taller. Under the hood, the alleged Sony Xperia X Ultra will reportedly ship with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC that is paired with an impressive 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage.
Given the midrange hardware specs under the hood, Sony is expected to make up for this by equipping the Xperia X Ultra with a decent 19MP sensor on the back alongside a 13MP shooter. Software-wise, Android 7.0 Nougat will definitely power it out of the box and keeping it alive will be a 3050mAh battery unit that supports fast charging technology. The same report also adds that the Xperia X Ultra might also include an IP68-certified body for dust and water resistance.
