Screenshots from Sony Xperia ZU prototype confirm specs

0. phoneArena 19 Jun 2013, 16:45 posted on

One of the most anticipated devices right now is the Sony Xperia ZU; some screenshots from a prototype confirm most of the high-end specs that you would expect from a device like this. The only difference from expectations is with the screen size which is listed at 6.21 inches instead of the 6.4 inches that the screen was supposed to measure...

Now these are deep blacks finally. Not grayish.

It's a screenshot, the depth of the blacks depend of the device you're currently using, it might render differently on the phone. Take a screenshot from an amoled device and view it on an lcd screen, you'll notice the difference

Agreed with you.
But I think they have removed TFT screen and triluminos display should be under the hood.
Hope so. Waiting desperately.

Hopefully it should be better, but Triluminos (quantum dot) technology is still LCD-based.

I think in time, it should have many competitive qualities, like being flexible/unbreakable and deep blacks, but right now the tech isn't mature enough. Some qualities right now is that it has much better viewing angles, great contrast, and somewhat less power consumption.

Sony's Triluminos TV demo is still backlit though, and thus will not have deep blacks.

LCD is god too.
HTC One, HUAWEI ASCEND D2 and Droid DNA have gorgeous displays.

LCD is better than OLED (at least for today).

I'm in the same boat as you. From what has been leaked this a gorgeous phone with an even better spec sheet, but it's just too big. The Honami seems like a better fit, but it's still gonna be a tough decision.

Bring it on, Sony! As long as it's as compact as ZL with minimal bezel, I'm in.

Unfortunately, with Sony, there is generally a bit of a delay between announcement and shipping to stores. Somehow I suspect other phones will be available to purchase with the S800/Adreno 330 chipset before the new Sony is available.
