Earlier last month, renowned leaker Ice universe shared the supposed tempered film for Sony's upcoming flagship phone dubbed the Xperia XZ4 on Twitter. The screen reportedly measured 15.2cm in length, suggesting that the device in question would likely have an aspect ratio wider than that of current flagships.
While there has since been no further information about the tall screen, a trademark recently filed with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) seems to shed more light on that display technology now. As spotted by LetsGoDigital, Sony has trademarked a wide-screen tech called "CinemaWide" in the European Union, hinting at a likely incorporation into the rumored Xperia XZ4.
The trademark document does not go into detail when it comes to the screen's specifications, but the smartphone is rumored to be sporting a 6.5-inch OLED display with an aspect ratio of 21:9 and a 3360 x 1440 resolution. As seen in the image above, which was part of the previous leak, the Xperia XZ4 may also have a slightly larger top bezel and a dual front camera.
Sony is expected to unveil its next-gen flagship device at MWC 2019 that is set to take place in Barcelona later this month. While there's no official word on its specs, the Xperia XZ4 is supposed to be powered by Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 processor and running Android 9.0 Pie. It's also believed to be boasting a triple-lens camera with a 52MP main lens and an aperture of f/1.6. Inside, it's rumored to pack 6GB of RAM and a 4,400mAh battery.
