Sony Mobile may shortly be using new display software in its Xperia devices including a new version of “X-Reality” and more interestingly “4K X-Reality”. Recently we have reported that there is a possibility that the Xperia Z5+ phablet may use a 4K display, given info revealed in the UAProf.
However, whilst this seems far-fetched, a report from Digi-wo appears to suggest the same thing, with the Xperia Z5+ (S70+) due to have “4K X-Reality”, whilst the Xperia Z5 (S70) and Xperia Z5 Compact (S60) will not. Sony already uses “4K X-Reality PRO” in its 4K televisions to help upscale HD content. Therefore it’s no surprise that if Sony were to bring out a 4K display in a mobile device, then it would likely use the same processing engine.
