There are already two phones with this display.
Sony introduced at MWC 2019 in Barcelona smartphones with a new display format. The screen has Ratio 21: 9, which, according to the manufacturer, brings a better viewing experience to multimedia and other benefits.
Sony has introduced three phones with a 21: 9 display The Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus are already on sale, the leading Xperia 1 is still waiting. It should come to the market by the end of spring. Xperia 10 is sold for 349 eur You can find it in the offer of all operators and for free sale. The Xperia 10 Plus is worth 429 euros, also available.
Displays more content
Screen with aspect ratio 21: 9 Allows you to see more content compared to the 18: 9 screen, while maintaining the same width of the phone. This is logical, the screen is more stretched to the heights. If it does not hurt you, you will have a larger viewing area, and at the same time you will retain the width of the phone in one hand.
That's why Sony recommends Xperia 10 to all lovers of the Xperia Compact. The Xperia 10 is closest to this phone. The width is 68 mm, the Xperia XZ2 Compact has a width of 65 mm. The Xperia 10 is also thinner, but far from small phones.
21: 9 brings advantage in terms of multitasking. Compared to 16: 9, you get up to 31% more desktop space, which means that you can watch a web page while viewing the same content as the 16: 9 screen while you run YouTube in a small window.
21: 9 you can use it to track the service Netflix and Amazon Prime Videowhich already offer content in this format. This is how it was created by filmmakers, so it was not arranged for a different page format, and you'll see what the camera took. Of course, in this case, it depends on your habits, regardless of whether you are watching something other than on YouTube movie trailers.
Optimized gesture and side panel management
In the case of a loaded display, the question arises, the same as for one hand. It's hard to cover the whole range of thumbnails with screens 18: 9, but most users will not be able to use the 21: 9 screens.
However, Sony also thought about this and that's why the new Xperia optimized gesture control and Side Side Sides. In practice, this means that you can simply move the top line with movement and show a list of all applications. You can activate the Side Sense board by tapping a line on the side of the screen so that you can effectively manage your phone in just one-fourth of the screen.
In the case of the applications itself, in some cases, it has avoided the use of two hands, but you can manage basic navigation in the Android interface with one hand.
We add that it offers the Xperia 10 6 "Full HD +, Snapdragon 630, 3 GB RAM and 64 GB memory and 2870 mAh battery. Version 10 Plus has a 6.5 "Full HD +, Snapdragon 636, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB and 3000 mAh battery.
