One year ago (to the day almost) we reported that Sony Mobile was planning to launch a premium Xperia flagship in 2018 that would incorporate an OLED display. Well you can now add more fuel to the fire on that lingering rumour. We have come across some official Sony Mobile job listings for a ‘Display Engineer’, where “OLED experience is a must”.
One of the key job descriptors is to “drive display/OLED integration to mobile phone products (design/verification/production)”. That seems like pretty hard evidence to us that Sony is at least working on an OLED equipped Xperia device. What we don’t know at this stage is if Sony remains on schedule to release an OLED Xperia device in 2018. The full time job was posted on 30 November 2017, with an ‘unposting date’ of 28 February 2018. So if we don’t see an OLED Xperia device announcement at MWC in February, then there’s a good chance Sony could launch it for IFA in September 2018. We’ll keep you posted with any developments.
