Sony has officially announced the Sony Xperia Z Ultra smartphone, which happens to be company’s first phablet and the newest member of the Xperia Z family. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra, codenamed Togari, has finally been unveiled and we are pretty much amazed with what Sony has managed to put into it.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra has been in rumors for a long time, and many of you must know it as the ‘Togari’. And if you have already gone through the specs sheet that was leaked a few days ago, you will be happy to know that a majority of the specs listed on that sheet are actually present in the Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
So coming right to the specs part, Sony Xperia Z Ultra has a 6.4-inch full HD touchscreen display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. This new phablet uses Sony’s latest Triluminous display technology, which is also used in the company’s latest series of televisions. Along with the crisp and clear display, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra has the Qualcomm snapdragon 800 chipset. The device is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core processor and has 2GB of RAM. With specs like these, speed and performance will never be an issue for consumers.
Apart from the high clock speed and performance, the Snapdragon 800 chipset provides a number of other interesting features. The chipset comes with an in-built 4G LTE radio and also has support for HD voice quality. When it comes to data and storage, the phablet provides you with 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card support that can be used for storage expansion.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra also has an 8MP primary camera with an Exmor RS sensor. The phablet also has an IP58 certification, which means that it is waterproof and can be used under 5 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. The Xperia Z Ultra also happens to be the slimmest phablet in the world with a thickness of 6.5 mm, which even beats the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4. The phablet weighs about 212 grams, which is because of the huge display panel, metal side frame and the glass shell.
One of the most interesting and useful features of this phablet is that you can write on the screen with any regular pen or pencil, provided that its tip is more than 1mm in diameter. The phablet has a 3000mAh battery and runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is definitely the future of phablets, and will be released by Q3 this year.
