Although the name of the upcoming Sony Xperia 2 is not set in stone yet, the Japanese company has recently trademarked one of its features, namely S-Cinetone. While this name suggests a photo- or video-related function, there are no technical details to talk about. However, the trademark documents reveal that Sony's next-gen devices will use a 21:9 display.

When it comes to naming smartphones, Sony's approach is quite confusing. The Xperia XZ3 arrived last year, but its successor was not the Xperia XZ4, Sony choosing to go with the Xperia 1 name instead. Now, it seems that the Xperia 2 is on its way, but it would not be surprising to see the Japanese tech giant pick a different naming convention once again. 

Although the name is not certain, what we know is that Sony has been busy registering a trademark for S-Cinetone — apparently a function that will be available with the next Xperia phone, but it will not stop there. According to the documents filed with the USPTO and the EUIPO, this technology will be found in smartphones, digital cameras, computer programs, tablets, and more.

Given the wide range of devices mentioned above and the inclusion of computer programs in the list, S-Cinetone is most likely a software function that does not rely on a certain hardware component and has something to do with color adjustment. In the hardware department, the Sony Xperia 2 is expected to feature a 6.1-inch display with 4K resolution, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, 6 GB of memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery with wireless charging support. This handset will probably be unveiled next month at IFA 2019, in Berlin.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
