It has certainly been a while since we first brought up the topic of Sony's Xperia Z Ultra on PhoneArena, and a lot has been said about the mega phablet since. Naturally, the sheer size of the Xperia Z Ultra has received the most coverage, but not enough has been said about Sony's previously TV-exclusive Triluminos tech making its way into its next generation of smartphone devices.
While Sony's TFT screens have been largely lagging behind the competition with washed out colors and poor viewing angles, the addition of Triluminos tech is supposed to close the gap between the company's displays and those of rivals. Vietnamese SECafe has brought to us a visual comparison of how Sony's latest technology fares against one of the best currently available displays out there, in the form of the HTC One. We'll let you judge the result for yourself, but we have to say we're happy to see Sony making tangible progress in a department where it has been forced to play catch-up.
But what exactly lies underneath the surface, or, in other words – what's the secret sauce behind Sony's improved displays? Well, a combination of things, really, and the videos at the end of the slideshow below should prove instructional enough. In a nutshell, its proprietary Triluminos tech features a wider range of colors to pick from, making images more vivid and realistic. This is achieved by the use of the so called “quantum dots”, or extremely small particles that emit light at a preset wavelength based on which we then perceive a different color. Taking a step away from the hardware, the successor of the Bravia Engine 2 for mobile, the so-called X-Reality Engine, is supposed to analyze information sent to the display, break it down and improve it in areas such as sharpness, saturation, contrast and noise reduction.
