UAProf Shows Sony Working On A 4K Display For Xperia Z5+

Sony held back on classy screen resolution, staying on 1080p from the original Xperia Z to the Xperia Z3+ only going up to QHD with the Xperia Z4v. The company may be looking to jump to the front of the line with a 4K display.

A User Agent profile details the Sony E68XX group of phones. Those are expected to follow up the Xperia Z5 later on and bear the Xperia Z5+ name. The Z5+ is rumored to have a 5.5" classy screen (or bigger), but even then a 4K classy screen will create for an insane 801ppi pixel density.

The profile also reveals the chipset – MSM8944, aka Snapdragon 810. Overheating concerns aside, we have certain doubts that Adreno 430 can drive a 4K display. To avoid confusion about labels 4K is 3,840 x 2,160px, the same as an UHD TV and over double the pixel count of a QHD display (4x a 1080p screen).

Sharp has already announced a 5.5" 4K Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) expected in 2016 though Sony could utilize a different supplier. ZTE may also be in the 4K race.

Bear in mind that User Agent profiles are not always to be trusted.
