Are You Ready for a 4K Smartphone Screen?

4K Ultra HD

And from Sony, no less?

It looks like the company’s smartphone releases for this week’s IFA show in Berlin have already been leaked. If sources are to be believed, the new Xperia Z5 will come in three variants:

1. The Z5 Compact, with a 4.6 inch 720p screen;
2. The Z5, with a 5.2 inch 1080p screen;
3. The Z5 Premium, with a 5.5 inch 3840 x 2160 pixel screen.

That’s not quite 4,000 pixels wide, but it’s certainly within spec of the Ultra HD consumer format.

Incredulous as this may seem, it’s hard not to believe Olivier Terme, Sony Mobile’s director of marketing, caught on-camera in a YouTube video that appeared briefly over the weekend before the inevitable DMCA takedown request. A screen cap has since been re-uploaded by someone else, so dust off that high school French and watch this one before it meets a similar fate!
