Sony files trademark for CinemaWide branding for Xperia XZ4: report

Sony Xperia XZ2 back

Sony’s upcoming flagship will reportedly feature a wider or taller — depending on how you look at it — aspect ratio than what is typically considered standard in a smartphone.

According to LetsGoDigitala Netherlands-based website, Sony filed a trademark with the European Union Intellectual Property Office for the ‘CinemaWide’ branding.

CinemaWide likely refers to the rumoured 21:9 aspect ratio that the Xperia XZ4 will reportedly sport. A horizontally wider XZ4 will allow for a better viewing experience, as well as extra wide recordings when taking videos or pictures.

The report from LetsGoDigital also mentions that along with a triple rear-facing camera setup, the XZ4 also features a 52-megapixel sensor with an f/1.6 aperture.

Additionally, rumours suggest the handset sports a Snapdragon 855 processor, 6GB of RAM, 4,400mAh battery and 3.5mm headphone jack.

Sony will likely unveil the XZ4 at its event on February 25th at Mobile World Congress in Spain.
