    Thread Desktop mode using DisplayPort alt mode ?

    Since the snapdragon 845 supports native DisplayPort, it only make sense that the Xperia supports it too (but it's disabled?) It is most likely possible to get it working since LG G7 enabled it using OTA after the release And Desktop mode is cool, and hopefully gets better over the next months
