Sony Pins Hopes on 4K Video at MWC 2018 to Revive Smartphone Sales


Japan’s Sony Corporation is turning its focus to 4K high-definition video recording in its new Xperia XZ2 smartphone to differentiate itself from rivals that have caught up in camera technology.

Unwrapped at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress on Monday, the Xperia XZ2 features Corning Gorilla Glass 5 on both the front and back and a longer 18:9 ratio display which reduces the size of the bezels on the front of the handset.

It will record video in 4K HDR – a quality previously only available in the top-of-the-range camcorders, senior Sony Mobile product manager Adam Marsh said.

“We have a smartphone about to come to the market that is actually giving you a better movie recording than a very high-end camcorder from Sony,” he said.
