First smartphone to feature 4K screen resolution
The Sony Xperia Z5 Premium is the world’s first phone with a 4K screen, taking movie watching and picture viewing to a completely new level.
To find out why Sony squeezed so many pixels into such a small display, we grabbed the company’s global product marketing manager for an exclusive interview:
João Seabra says Sony saw the growth in the 4K market, with the likes of Netflix producing more and more content, and wanted to lead the technology. The company already has market-leading 4K TVs, so it made sense to take that expertise and squeeze it into a smartphone.
But you don’t have to splash out on expensive 4K videos to make the most of the new phone - the Z5 Premium will actually upscale movies. That means if you’re watching a Full HD film, you’ll see something that’s closer to 4K quality.
