But if the rumours was true i think ONE SONY will be the first Real Sony device that fix everything beacuse it will uses
JDI Whitemagic or IZGO both of them have great quality, viewing angle and good power efficiency. But the best news are there is a possibility we will see Triluminos+X-reality on ONE SONY (triluminos better than OLEDs and can twice as power efficient as OLEDs)
Same Audio chip like ''Walkman''
New camera sensor with new image algorithm and directly taking care by Sony camera divison.
Combine all of that with Sony great design,build quality and Snapdragon 800.
It will be one of the best Smartphone ever made.
It sounds like a dream but its not impossible because Sony have the technology. And if Sony make the rumour comes true, One Sony will be my my second device from Sony since my K750i.

You forgot something -
Carbon Fibre and Glass Body
$1000+ Price Point

Also - Non-JDI / IGZO display. Display will be now completely made by Sony (Not Sony Mob.) and most probably, the Sony Lund (Sweden) branch would handle the software.
New Display from Sony Inc. means viewinng angles and contrast ratios as good as their TVs.

they call it One Sony or Honami it just code name like XP Z/ZL with Yuga And Odin.
There is big possibility that Sony will use Triluminos on ''One Sony'' insider on Esato said One Sony may use triluminos and if i'm not wrong Sony philipnes also confirm that triluminos will be on Sony mobile devices (i forgot the link).
If they really use triluminos with X-reality it will beat any other display on the market just like Sony TV (the best image quality). But the worst case scenario is Sony will use JDI or IZGO panel so you don't have to worry about display quality.
You don't worry about audio quality we all know ''walkman'' have the best audio quality.
And when Sony camera divison taking care One Sony camera directly the image quality at least will be one off the best on the market (if not the best).

"But the worst case scenario is Sony will use JDI or IZGO panel so you don't have to worry about display quality."i didnt get that, do JDI or IZGO panels have bad quality?i dont know.hope that sony will use triluminos.than my recent next phone will be ONE SONY.cause i m going to purchase 1.

all of those display is a option that available because we don't know are Triluminos will be ready fo mobile devices, but since Sony philippines also said we will see triluminos on sony devices so i think its all about time.
JDI and IZGO panel quality are good. I don't really know about IZGO but HTC ONE uses panel from JDI.
And if they use JDI Whitemagic it will have 2000:1 contras ratio, about 178 degrees viewing angle and 50% less power. I'm just try to say even if sony not use triluminos, One Sony still have good quality display.
But I also hope they will use Triluminos with X-reality. Combine that with the best audio, camera design and processor.

actually i m not concerned about audio quality because i think audio chip they are going to give is more than enough and i dont listen to music so i do not have to worry about it.but the picture quality does matter.very glad to know that from you.hope so.just waiting.

Its not about color reproduction.its about the contrast.if you use it in hand than you will be able to find that colors are more bright but did you see the black levels in iphone 5 its just gorgeous but xz it gray.when you see that blacks are gray it will seem to you thats it is low quality panel like chaina.it is because sony calibrated it that way and they increased the gamma level to show bright colors and saturation but increasing gamma makes blacks gray and reduces contrast.thats the point.and in this video you are just waching front veiw if you tilt the phone it will become washed out.this is unxpected in such a premium phone.

It is...on a 4.6 incher, it'll have one of the best ppi. You can't just chuck a 720p device saying it's not good cause we now have 5 inched screens with 1080p resolution. The next big thing lower than 1080p is 720p itself.

Like you can see a difference between 720p and 1080p on 4.6 inch screen.

Tsk.. Those people who say that being a 720p phone sucks are being blinded by gimmicky high resolution displays! Come on! 720p displays was just a year ago and they are still good enough.

I'm not getting this phone. Not because i don't like it, but since i just got my note 2 less than 6 months ago. I am really interested in this phone, especially with the ip55/58. I guess i'll be waiting for note 3 :)

good phones nonetheless, but Sony should really stop making phones with similar specs. Instead should keep a single phone as a flagship. With the rate they are going now, they are going to make use of all the letters of English alphabet in a couple of years. In kindergarten instead of learning "A" for apple , "B" for ball etc.. it will be xperia a , xperia b etc.. :)

After alphabets, then numbers!

Sony Xperia 1, Xperia 2, Xperia 3 etc.

I hope Sony won't think about this, how about a Japanese name? For example, Sony Xperia Rakki (Lucky), Xperia Kemono (Beast). Or how about English? Xperia Lucky, Xperia Beast.

Complicated right?

We all know that this isn't a flagship device! This is just another option to choose.
But when it released, I will definitely get my hands on it!

Good job Sony, Sony always make me believe!
