Also, samsung is not only screen supplier. There are units with LG oled, just like last year 12/12Pro were LG while Mini/Max were Samsung.
You do not see difference while watching video on any of them.

Just like Sony from Z2 to Z5. Mix of JDi, LG and Sharp.
Costumers have never suspected this.

hope this gets worldwide availability.

This could be a Premium camera phone with more optical zoom, or maybe the world's first phone to offer continuous optical zoom.

Samsung is the one keeping apple alive by supplying them with displays that get awards and Galaxy Fold is something Apple won't be able to make anytime soon

People from Walkman same.

Sony sells more ILCs than Cybershots.
They were aware at some point Cybershots would become very restricted business because phones are extremely convenient.

Only advantage of RX100/10 is zoom capabilities. I think last RX10 is 24-600mm. It also uses DRAM in-sensor.

Oh boy oh boy oh boy!

Can't wait for the hate comments coz you know people love to hate. The audacity of this community baffles me. Will they buy it? No, have they tried using it? Mostly no.

I know theres fanwar between communities since companies are head to head in the camera department but to hate sony just because of it's price range is pathetic.

And don't even get me started with the "CaMeRA iS HorRibLe"

Pttw, 21 Oct 2021How many phones do Sony actually sell, are they in profit? ... moreFrom april 2020 to march 2021 (sony financial year is not january to december), sony sold 2,9 million devices.
After years of loss (since 2015), profit was posted. They made $240 million.

For comparison, LG selling about 10x more device (at least), lost over $ 1 billion before quiting mobile business.

All electronics except PlayStation are one division.
Instead of having different teams for each "division", now same people work on different products.

“camera attached to a phone" - nightmare to Ex-1020,cm1 user。
"A good camera phone must be a good phone at first"Sony should learn it from Huawei.

How many phones do Sony actually sell, are they in profit? ive not seen anyone with a Sony phone in over 3 years? they so need a redesign & a marketing budget.

Finally seeing 1-inch IMX800 sensor?

Im sure i will believe it if only Sony doesnt suck in marketing their mobile phones, cause no matter how great the phone is, if we cant buy it, then its nothing

Might be this time the alpha division is seriously helping the Xperia division.

A friend of mine does have a Sony FF Mirrorless camera but he keeps coming back to his previous Nikon FF DSLR camera because the sensor in the Nikon is more responsive than the sensor in the Sony when shooting in continuous mode.

I clearly want hi res, natural bokeh(/big sensor) and nxt lvl zoom. Basically All I need from camera. Maybe they will bring some of those. Its hard to upgrade from 400euro device that got most of these including jack and raw, wish they pay more attention to mid range.

Real surprise is, how did Sony kept it under wraps.
Not a single leak.
While Tim Cook scratching his head to stop leaks.
