Sony using two display suppliers for the Xperia Z?

in Xperia Z and Xperia ZL

JDCThe Xperia Z’s display has created the biggest talking point for Sony’s new flagship. Whilst there is no doubt that the display offers pin-sharp resolution, viewing angles and contrast have come in for criticism from some quarters. It appears that Sony is using at least two different suppliers for the Xperia Z’s display component – JDC (Japan Display Central, part of Japan Display Inc) and Sharp.

A poll running on xda-developers has been trying to determine which display is better. Just shy of 90 votes have been placed and from these 80% are running the Sharp display and 20% from JDC. Unfortunately, it seems that no one has been able to determine which is better and unless we see two side-by-side with the different panels, we probably won’t come to any firm conclusions. We expect this debate to continue to run and run.

Thanks Ashish & FlowXT!
