Sony to use Triluminous display tech in future Xperia phones, 'quantum dots' will be your bragging rights

Sony recently revealed its newest Triluminous display tech that uses quantum dots, or nanocrystals so small they have quantum properties, and are emitting light just at preset wavelengths. This boosts everything - from a 50% larger color gamut, to brightness, contrast and so on.

Samsung actually has similar technology in the works, as we learned back in 2011, and at the time it was said it is few years away, so it might come up with something similar soon.

At the time it seemed that the fancy stuff will be reserved for its exensive 4K TVs, like the X9004A model, but now Sony Philippines chair claimed that the Triluminous tech will end in the company's future smartphones, too, which is great news, especially considering the display Sony put in the Z. And if the upcoming handsets are with the rumored Togari and Honami specs, even better. The source relays that:

We've actually heard rumors before that those future Sony handsets might come with the Triluminous tech, but didn't even dream about it until further proof, and here it comes, straight from Sony's mouth. The technology looks great on the large expensive TVs, and we hope Sony will be able to scale it down successfully for its upcoming phones and tablets.

u r spot on. because they are solely based on android and the competition in android world is the greatest. to shine in android pool they need to differentiate them And as far as i know they are doing so. they are likely to reintroduce walkman series and cybershot series in their portfolio.

Looks some good competition is waiting this year! As a consumer I am delighted with the war of the technologies at the end we'll be getting better and best! Thanks to Sony for engaging itself in this war!

Sony Honami and Togari will definitely be the Galaxy S4 and Note III killer! Sony always make me believe! I love Sony!

G Pro is far from being more productive and overwhlming than note2.. even phonedog battle, note2 beats htc one bcoz of what it offers..

38. yudi.nemesis unregistered

look at this stupid fanboy I'm talking about LG Optimus G Pro you talking about HTC One. The only things that G Pro doesn't have is Stylus. But guess what G Pro have sensitive screen just like S4. G Pro beat Note 2 in every aspect even G pro have Smaller footprint and a tad lighter body G Pro have better design, better hardware, better feature its just better nothing more nothing less.

Pls think more, I mentioned abt htc one bcoz even though htc one has d 2013 specs, n2 still beats htc one bcoz of the prodctvty it has.. and u cant change that, all n2 users will say d same.. What feat does g pro outclassed n2??

44. yudi.nemesis unregistered

everything because G Pro have same feature like S4. Can you use note 2 with glove??? With Wacom stylus you can use G pro just like Note 2

45. yudi.nemesis unregistered

*almost same

Ur wrong.. the phablet exprnce w/ note 2 is superior than g pro.. I dont want to mention d dfferences coz I dont wanna type long commnt, im sleepy haha.. g pro have d advntge of 2013 specs but phablet exprnce nd prodctvty is far superior with note2, g pro js just a big great smartphone.., dont make me wrong with thT coz note devices defined whats phablet for me

56. yudi.nemesis unregistered

Like always keep talking BS. You just can't accept that Optimus G pro is better in any way, and Note 2 is inferior compare to G Pro. G Pro is better both in phablet experiance, and pruductivity even without Stylus.

Ok, maybe I'm wrong, those two Sony phones aren't the killer. But you need to accept the fact, Samsung is not gonna win forever, other manufacturers will defeat Samsung someday! Yes, Note 2 is still the king......yet, trust me, Samsung is not gonna win forever! The Note 2 will be defeated someday!

it will defntly be a galaxy s4 killer for more advanced tech bcoz it is a future device, but whats wrong is "note3 killer" coz both arent yet official,, and note devices are on their own league of battle and actually d most unique and productive android flavor yet, togari myt beat n3 if they will use stylus w/ more refined and productive experience :)

Totally agree with you!

I dont get why note 2 is king.. I cant even type on my note 2 as fast as i can on my N4. Touchwiz may have introduce some features but it lags the phone.
