sony-xperia-z3-z3v-review-12The other day thanks to a UAProf, it was revealed that the upcoming Sony Xperia Z5 Plus could sport a whopping 4K display. Assuming the rumors are true, it could easily make Sony the first company in the world to create a smartphone with such a high-resolution display. At the same time, we have to admit that we are kind of skeptical about that.

Sony for the most part has largely relied on Full HD displays until date, save for the Xperia Z4v which features a QHD display, so to make the leap to 4K would be very drastic. That being said, a report from Chinese website Digi-wo (via Xperia Blog) has added fuel to the rumors by claiming that Sony will incorporate their 4K X-Reality PRO technology to mobile devices.

As it stands Sony’s X-Reality PRO technology can be found inside the company’s 4K television sets. Basically what it does is that it helps upscale HD content so that when viewed on a 4K display, it won’t be so blurry or pixelated, so we can only assume the technology will act the same way on a mobile device that could help bump apps and videos to better match the rumored 4K display.

Given the Xperia Z5 Plus is the only handset to feature a 4K display, this means that the 4K X-Reality PRO tech will not make its way to the rumored Xperia Z5 or the Xperia Z5 Compact devices. In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but in the meantime what do you guys make of 4K? Overkill?
