question about screen resolution

If I remember correctly, although all premium Xperias in past have 4K display, they display majority of contents in FHD (such as home screen etc)  except for certain contents such as photo or video. 

Does Xperia 1 do the same thing, or maybe instead of FHD+, it uses QHD+ like XZ3 or "all time 4K"?

Re: question about screen resolution

Ok so it's "cinemawide 4k" all the time.

The 4k resolution at that aspect is 3840 X 1644 (I believe)

This is also the resolution that 4k movies in 21:9 are presented in if taken from a crop of 16:9 a 3840x2160.

So for all intent and purposes, the screen is an always 4k at cinemawide 21:9

 

Hope that clears it up for you

Re: question about screen resolution

Thanks for clarification, viridis.

 

So unlike old premium models which display most contents in FHD (again, like home screen, browser etc),  Xperia 1 display them in 4K all the time.


I personally think it's quite a difference.

Could be big improvement in terms of visual but also could be bad for battey life.

Re: question about screen resolution

I don't think the battery life will be hit by much at all tbh, I ran XZ2 premium in 4k for a week and it still easily got me through the day.

Plus, it's about 150 ppi more than the current 1440p xz3 at 18:9 so with the increased optimisation on power by Qualcomm, we're gonna see some nice improvements with no noticeable difference on power.

No the screen is 1080p unless displaying 4k video or photos.

I was then, unfortunately I took that info from a site that stated this but it, and subsequently I, was wrong.

I do believe that the resolution shown in your image (which should show up soon as I just accepted it) is the correct resolution for the UI and general use, with the resolution changing to 4k as with the previous "Premium" line of handsets
