Next phone Sony leaks with a 21:9 film screen

Sony appears to be approaching the release of a phone for movie buffs. WinFuture ‘s new images of the Xperia XA3 reveal an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio display. In recent years we’ve seen an 18:9 wave of smartphones, but Sony has to go for an even bigger, thinner device. A 21:9 aspect ratio would match many of the major movies today, so you can watch them on XA3 without the black bars on the sides or on the top and on the bottom. But any other non-cinema contents have bars on the sides, so when streaming movies there’s a deal for this immersion.
One good thing about the 18:9 trend (smaller telephones, however) is that with one hand it is easier to handle than with older, wider telephones. The
19.5:9 LG G7 is one of the best things to do about this device and its one-hand usability. There is certainly a point, however, in which phones can get too large — particularly when the screen itself is large. Samsung redesigns the whole of its software experience in recognition of the difficulty of using large phones. Earlier rumors indicated that 9to5Google showed a 5.9-inch display. It sounds like reaching the top of that… Hard. Hard. It almost looks like a remote TV. It seems like that. The back of the XA3 shows a system of double camera and a long glass panel. The bottom of the phone does look very nice and symmetrical, though. (It looks like the fingerprint scanner will be integrated back into the power button). For the sake of this big screen at the Mobile World Congress, we should know more about theXA3 and the Sony’s pitch within a few weeks.
