According to Sony’s Bravia team, there are a couple of minute details which set 4K HDR apart from regular 4K. The team reiterates Apple’s approach that more pixels simply aren’t better. To say that after launching a 4K screen sounds a bit ironic if you as us. Still, folks over Sony claim that the reason 4K HDR is better than standard 4K isn’t because the display uses more pixels. Rather, it manages to do more with the amount that it already has.

The pixels for the XZ Premium’s display have a much larger range of brightness/contrast and offers ore colors/tones with a standard pixel. Sony claims that this result will make your experience more immersive, true to life and also offer greater depth perception. The manufacturer also provides details for which equipment needed to record in 4K HDR. We’ve got good news for you here. According to Sony, the equip that’s needed to record this level of output has been available for quite a while. It’s the post production processing which makes all the difference. In short, with the right software, you’ll be able receive your desired results, regardless of hardware.

What the post conveniently fails to mention is what impact this will have on the XZ Premium’s performance efficiency. 4K HDR won’t be easy on the battery that is for clear. In fact, we believe that this feature might end up doing more harm than good for Sony. Users will be cautious when purchasing the device and will make their decision only after reviews of the smartphone are available. Not that we’d blame them. Thoughts?
