This is a major improvement for brightness and energy efficiency but what about black levels and contrast? I can't imagine adding white will help LCDs produce truer blacks like AMOLED can. Impressive though Sony.

I think RGBW is the way to go, kudos to Sony for that. I think what they should work on now is how to totally turn off these pixels to produce a true black.

I can actually think of a couple of ways to block the back lighting, but I can't think of a power efficient one.

I've had this phone hands on recently at a team briefing we had in my store as these phones are launching very soon. It is indeed and impressive screen,the build of the new xperia phones are excellent also. Sonys line up this year is very good

Yeah, It shoulda been mentioned, 'this technology, comes with a catch though'. I'd rather stick to amoled panels, and as far as sunlight legibility and black levels is concerned, I think nothing beats ClearBlack tech from good old Nokia.

In fact this is another variation of the PENTILE MATRIX arrangement.
