Sony Announces Super-Sized Phablet the Xperia Z Ultra

Sony announces it's new super-sized phablet the Xperia Z Ultra

Sony is the latest company in the increasingly growing number of companies producing out monstrously large phones. The new phablet, the Xperia Z Ultra has a giant 6.4 inch Full HD display and the latest SnapDragon 800 processor.

The Xperia Z Ultra happens to be amazingly thin, in fact, it’s the world’s thinnest 1080p Full HD display smartphone at only 6.5mm. It is quite heavy though, at 212g.

The Xperia Z Ultra’s 6.4 inch display comes with Sony’s new X-Reality and OptiContrast tech and is of Full HD 1080p resolution. It’s also super-sensitive just like the new Lumias and Galaxy S4, which means you can virtually use any object to work on the phone, including pencils.

The Xperia Z Ultra is the world’s first phone to pack a SnapDragon 800 processor. It comes with 2 GB RAM and 16 GB internal expandable storage. The back hosts a 8 megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD video recording and HDR mode. LED Flash is missing here unfortunately.

The Xperia Z Ultra happens to be water-resistant. It comes with IP58 certification which means it can dive deeper than 1 meter for more than 30 minutes.

The phone runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

Here are the full specs of the Xperia Z Ultra:

  • Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean
  • 6.5mm thick
  • Weight: 212g
  • 6.4 inch display with 1080p Full HD resolution
  • Super-sensitive, shatterproof display
  • IP58 certified water-resistant
  • 2.2Ghz quad-core SnapDragon 800 processor
  • Adreno 330 GPU
  • 2 GB RAM with 16 GB internal expandable storage
  • 8 megapixel camera with 1080p Full HD and HDR mode
  • Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0, USB-OTG, NFC, 4G LTE
  • 3050 mAh battery

The phone will be available in Q3 this year for a price tag of 719 Euros which will be equivalent to around PKR 95,000. That price tag might be tough to swallow but due to its high-tech specs, it will probably find quite many buyers.
