But, according to Gsmarena, it has always 4k displaying.


This is because @viridis said Xperia 1 (Code name:Griffin) screen works in 4K all the time, which is a fake news Rolling on the Floor laughingRolling on the Floor laughingRolling on the Floor laughing

Re: question about screen resolution

Ok I actually am using the xperia 1 now j9110, 

CPU-z and antutu benchmark states the screen resolution is 1096*2560

With 2,805,760 pixels.

FHD 1920*1080 is 2,073,600 pixels

QHD (4k) 3840*2160 is 8,294,400 pixels

What is going on? 

Sony say the screen is 1644x3840  which is 6,312,960 pixels. Why is mine 3,507,200 pixels short?

Re: question about screen resolution

The screen is in 1080p by default. Grinning Face Connect to the phone via adb and run wm size to get the default size.

 

@PsYCOW the resolution 1644x3840 is correct. It's 4k in 21:9 aspect ratio.

So to use in 4k I need to use pc to change it like my xz2 premium? 

 

Does it even switch to 4k for related apps? I wouldn't know how to test it. Although I can watch YouTube videos in 4k but dunno if it's actually doing it or downscaling.

Re: question about screen resolution

It does indeed switch to 4k in related apps that support 4k

Re: question about screen resolution

You'd need a kernel that supports native 4k. Wait on the sony dev channel to release that.
