Sony to release a smartphone with Ultra Wide screen

- Adrian Ungureanu

LG and Samsung were the first companies to bring the new ultra wide screen on their smartphones and it seems now that Sony is ready to take a similar approach.

Sony will also launch a smartphone with Ultra wide display with screen aspect ratio of 21:9. Recently, Samsung has launched the Galaxy S8 with 18.5: 9 and LG announced the G6 with almost similar 18: 9 aspect ratio. The Sony Xperia X Ultra will be equipped with a 6.45-inch display. The device renders are surfaced recently.

Under the hood, the phone will be powered by Snapdragon 660 paired with 4GB of RAM, while the onboard storage is 64GB. Camera-wise, the phone will flaunt a 19-megapixel rear camera along with a 13-megapixel front snapper. The device will run on Android 7.0 Nougat.

Battery size of the phone is 3050 mAh, which will be backed by a Quick Charge 3.0 fast charge. The phone will come with IP68 rating that would make the phone dust and water resistant.

There are no details about the release date of prices right now.
