6.44-Inch Sony Smartphone Screen Surfaces

By - Source: Digi-wo | B 13 comments

Could be the rumored C6603 Yuga handset.

A 6.44-inch smartphone screen created by Japanese technology conglomerate Sony has appeared online.

Chinese forum Digi-wo believes the screen is a component for a rumored 6.44-inch, 1080p Sony phablet. The bezels on the side appear to be slightly skinnier than those found on the 6.1-inch Huawei Ascend Mate, which is currently the device with the world's largest phone screen.

Last year, a Sony C6603 Yuga smartphone surfaced, with a photo sample suggesting the device sports a 6-inch screen. Accompanying that is rumored to be a 13-megapixel Exmor RS camera.

Sony is currently preparing to ship its Xperia Z smartphone, with the firm also confirmed to be working on a tablet counterpart.

    the thinner form factor and the lightness makes big phones awesome, you really don't know till you have tried one and got used to it for a couple weeks. I still think this one is a bit on the large side, but i love my galaxy note 2 and i don't even need to use the 1 hand operation setting and i can still type just fine with 1 hand. I don't understand why so many people are accepting of "phablets" ( I admit that term just blows)

    I'll reserve judgement until after I've seen the Note 3.

    At 6.44" you pretty much have to shout for your voice to carry all the way to the mic.

    Sony days of creativity are over. Even Apple and MSFT are fumbling.

    In order for that screen to be ground breaking by todays standards, it needs to have 4k resolution which it does not.

    in order to be ground breaking by todays standards, it needs to be a 4.5 inches screen, which is not.

    I really don't know where these companies get their data to think people want phones bigger than a laptop. I think this whole tablet/smartphone trend just blurred their idea of what a phone or should be.
