Xperia Z, Xperia ZL to feature display calibration software, report says

by: Chris SmithJanuary 19, 2013


The Android star of the beginning of the year, the Xperia Z, and its Xperia ZL brother will hit stores in the coming months, and while we though we knew everything there was to know about them it looks like we may have missed at least one particular feature.

Both phones are reportedly going to arrive with display calibration software on board, which means that their owners will be able to independently customize the look of their screens.

According to details provided by SECafe, white balance, color saturation and hue can be manually set on the new Xperia ZL, but considering that the Xperia ZL is essentially a slightly downgraded Xperia Z, it’s only logical to see the same display calibration options on the top 2013 Xperia handset as well.

We’ll have to wait and see whether the feature will indeed be available on the Xperia Z and Xperia ZL, because we could also be looking at a prototype in the image above, running custom software.

Is display calibration important to you? Would you want to have such features on more Android devices?

    It may be important because the colors always look a little washed out in xperia phones

  • kascollet

    A good addition, but wouldn’t it be preferable to have all phones calibrated correctly out of the factory ? I know such work costs a bit but it’d give some consistency in colors across all phones.

    honestly dont like it.. Maybe its only me but I would be paranoid whether my settings are “perfect” or way off lol

      I know. I just now stopped being paranoid with my Nexus 4 screen. I finally just said “It’s good enough,” with all the screen tweaking I had been doing. Even now, I still find myself messing with the colors every once in a while.

  • Is better. Actually Sony screen win Samsung, just because Samsung screen are more contrast they why people like Samsung screen.

  • This is great! Some people like more or less contrast, saturation or color vividness

    Wow. I was just thinking a while back about how cool it would be if I could adjust the contrast, and color saturation on my phone like I can on my tv. Would be a nice feature for a phone with a 1080p display. This just makes me want the Xperia ZL even more.
