Sony Xperia XZ4 screen protector reconfirms extra tall display

Yordan, 31 December 2018

It has been almost a month since we heard anything about the Xperia XZ4. The device was first mentioned in early December, with a report talking an extremely tall display with a cinematic ratio of 21:9. We then saw some CAD renders of the upcoming Sony flagship, and a screen protector appeared in Chinese social media during the holiday, giving solid ground to the rumor.

The panel matches the earlier renders - extremely thin bezels, no notch, and cutout for the earpiece, camera and proximity sensor. There is also a tiny hole in the left end, probably for the LED notification light. Looking at the second photo, it matches the screen of the rendered Xperia XZ4 perfectly.

The same source provided pictures of a protective case as well. It reveals a vertical triple-cam setup, along with buttons and ports. On the right side, the volume rocker, the fingerprint scanner and the power key are aligned next to each other, and the camera shutter is there as well. On the bottom a speaker can be spotted, a USB-C and a cutout for the mic. There’s no 3.5 mm audio jack, but that’s hardly a surprise anymore.
