Sony Xperia Z2 Concept

Sony is planning to launch a new refreshed flagship code named "Sirius" in next month at MWC 2014. The leaked images and UI shows Sony is improved a lot in few areas, specially the display. We starting to see Sony is using IPS panels for the new flagships which is good news for Sony fans since they were having issues with viewing angle. For some reasons i don't think Sony will name this D6503 "Sirius" as Xperia Z2, So my concept is about the H2 flagship of Sony which is usually unveiled at IFA  around September. Xperia Z2 is a fresh flagship that makes Sony to get close to that "One Sony" strategy.

Xperia Z2 features a 5.25" 2K (1440x2560) resolution screen with a 560 ppi pixel density. The screen technology used for the concept is IPS Triluminos along with the Sony's picture engine X-Reality for Mobile. Screen is protected by a shatterproof sheet baked on to a gorilla glass 3. It's a fact that human eye can't differentiate pixel densities over 320ppi from a normal viewing distance, so why we need a 2K screen on a smartphone? Few factors have to be concerned, since the device is capable of 4K video record and playback, it helps to render the video more easily on a 2K screen. other factor is the Competition in the Market. Some folks want the best of available hardware on their phone despite the  battery consumption. It's true 2K screen will suck the battery juice more quickly when compared to a similar size 1080p screen. finally i have decide to go with a 2K screen although 1080p is enough for my personal taste.
