4K video recording and playback on a phone is amazing. Here Sony shows and talks about their Qualcomm S801 powered 4K video support on their new flagship Sony Xperia Z2 phone. They also show awesome 4K video playback using MHL 3.0 to a huge Sony 4K TV. Sony also ships a new stereo microphone accessory for higher quality microphone support.
219€ (retail price) for the 5" qHD nice looking display, MT6582 quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 for the 3G version, and there's an 239€ LTE verion using the Qualcomm MSM8926 also.
MHL demonstrates the amazing Sony Xperia Z2 with 4K output through MHL 3.0 with HDCP 2.2 content protection (required by Hollywood for 4K playback), then they show a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 reference board with Silicon Image Sil8620 doing MHL 3.0 outputting to a MHL 3.0 Docking Board with the SIlicon Image SiI9394 MHL 3.0-to-HDMI 2.0 bridge IC. What's also really awesome is they can stream fast data through the USB Host ports on the MHL 3.0 Dock and back through the phone. This is absolutely awesome and I have been waiting for this type of 600mbitps bandwidth on USB Host to be added to MHL, thus potentially using Smartphones as desktops and laptops when docked in desktop docks and laptop docks like the Acer Extend featured in my other MHL 3.0 video about productivity: http://armdevices.net/2014/02/28/mhl-for-productivity-acer-extend-mediatek-mt6592-mhl-optimizations-and-dellroku-mhl-hdmi-sticks/
