Sony Xperia 1R (J8220) UA profile points to a 5K display, 5,040 x 2,160px

17 July 2019
The 4K screen on the Xperia 1 already has a higher pixel density than the HTC Vive Pro VR headset. The 1R will push further.

Anonymous, 18 Jul 2019Proud of having camera overheating pop-ups ha!Other brand did not have to show overheating cam pop up because video with lower bitrate was capped to 10min.
My Z4 could once record 30 min of 4K (54Mbps) , it just stopped because memory got full. I forgot to set sd card as cam storage.

Something was even nicer, the overheating pop up on S6 telling device was too hot that it was going to reboot.

Moloses, 18 Jul 2019Why do you need QHD? FHD is more than enough.Wrong! FHD is enough, not more than enough. 720p screens are pixelated. At least 1080p screen is needed for phones.

I hope this device is the one with 5 cameras.
Imagine this:

48MP 1/1.5" + mono/Aube + 16mm UWA + 52mm zoom + ToF
10MP selfie + ToF
5K screen HDR
5G

Is it you Pro, 18 Jul 2019Is it the screenshot features can have better details because of 5K?Screenshot is always the resolution of the screen.

Full HD = 2MP
4K = 8MP
5K = almost 11MP

So, the answer is YES

5040x2160 is no longer 4K.
4K wide monitors are not 5040x2160 as well.

All my friends and known people to have Z5 are still proud and using them. The best devices ever at that time! This are the next ones and yes: STILL THE BEST!

Eldamri, 18 Jul 2019I'm a sony fan since the ericsson days but 5K screen is overkill... moreI want exactly what you said from a Sony phone. But we know it's never going to happen.

I would say this is the true 4K resolution in 21:9 ratio (the Xperia 1's resolution barely makes it to the true 8M pixels that 4K really is).
Now it might be really overkill, but I prefer this over the presence of a screen cutout.

Eldamri, 18 Jul 2019I'm a sony fan since the ericsson days but 5K screen is overkill... moreyes please

Is it the screenshot features can have better details because of 5K?
