Sony may announce its new Xperia XZ1s, Xperia XZ1 Plus and Xperia XZ1 Premium flagship during the first quarter during MWC 2018, thus maintaining its launch schedule every six months. The models had their technical specifications commented recently, where it was said that all will feature traditional IPS LCD panels, thus leaving the much-speculated Xperia with OLED screen only for the second half of the year.
Now, here’s information about Sony’s move to streamline the manufacturing process of its new OLED smartphones, where it is seen that the company is hiring a “display engineer” specializing in panels of this type. Included in the application are included in its attributions the integration of OLED display with smartphones, as well as studies in the area and optimizations in quality.
Another interesting point is that Sony is looking for professionals who already have experience working with OLED screens on smartphones, this being one of the main requirements of the job that reinforce the company’s hurry to finalize their products as soon as possible not to be so behind the rivals, and with the differential of working with proprietary technology while Apple and others need to appeal to Samsung and LG.
There is still no comment from Sony regarding the launch of smartphones with OLED screen, being commented by the company only that “all market trends are analyzed judiciously to evaluate the real benefits to users.” Remember that Sony was one of the few companies to go against the tide of Quad HD displays in their smartphones, offering only Full HD or 4K options in their flagships, which reinforces the company’s policy.
With the proximity of MWC 2018, which runs from February 26 to March 2 officially, should not be delayed until more precise details on the smartphones with Sony OLED displays are disclosed, remaining waiting to see if this will impact aggressively in the price that already suffers from much criticism by the consumers.
