Sony‘s proposals with their Xperia 1 may not be as original and eye-catching as we might have expected, but it seems that the manufacturer keeps his best card for a bet that could get him that point of notoriety he has been looking for for years. The solution? On folding screens.
The famous filtering Max J ( @Samsung_News_ on Twitter) has revealed some details of a supposed prototype that begins to dance through the offices of Sony and is supposed to be designed to counteract the proposals of Samsung and Huawei with their Galaxy Fold and Mate X respectively.
According to published information, the device would have a flexible screen that would be able to scroll as if it were a parchment, a design that could be inspired by the first futuristic concepts that Samsung showed in 2016 and that would receive internally the name of Nautilus.
The buzz also adds some of the internal features of the device, pointing to a 3220mAh battery, a Snapdragon 855 processor, Qualcomm X50 modem, 10MP camera and a Flexible panel manufactured by LG. The details are so precise that they even point out that the current prototype is running on a Snapdragon 7250.
The most surprising thing is that this so-called rolling phone would reach the market later this year (December) or early next, something that, if so, would fit us in a date close to the next MWC.
Although the device that we imagine with this description could be spectacular and would involve a very daring design exercise that could show that Sony still does not miss its appointment with innovation, maybe the manufacturer the last thing he needs right now is to launch to the market a phone whose label will almost certainly touch the $2245.
