Sony Xperia X Premium is the first phone to sport a HDR display

sony xperia x premium

Sony‘s upcoming premium flagship, the Xperia X Premium will be the first smartphone to sport a HDR display; with a brightness of 1,300 nits.

Likely to be the successor to the Xperia Z5 Premium (the first of Sony’s devices that had a 4K display) the Xperia X Premium apparently has a screen unlikely any other in the market.

For start, the display would be one of the first HDR displays in the mobile world, with a 120Hz refresh rate, 2,000:1 contrast ratio alongside being able to output 1,000 nits of brightness though its said it could possibly output up to 1,300. That is more than double that of the Samsung Galaxy S7 which outputs about 539 nits of brightness. Also a HDR display on the phone would mean that it could display up to 1.07 billion colours, as opposed to the 16.8 million colour depth on most other flagship devices. The Xperia X Performance uses a 5.5″ Whitemagic LCD display that pushes a standard Full HD resolution.

The full specs isn’t known yet and it should be a notch above its the current Xperia X Performance. The X Performance has a Snapdragon 820 under the hood, mated to 3GB RAM with the choice between 32/64GB storage. The phone will be sporting a 5-inch Full HD display alongside a USB Type-C port. Do note that the 64GB option will be a dual-sim setup.

No word yet on when the Sony Xperia X series will launch in Malaysia.
