The component is for a massive 6.44-inch device The Verge speculates to be capable of displaying full 1080p HD video.

 The leak was originally  posted to the Chinese site Digi-wo.

It’s possible Sony will formally unveil the so-called phablet at the Mobile World Congress conference in Barcelona next month.
