Sony Mobile gives a sneak peek of Xperia Z Ultra



The Sony Xperia ZU aka Xperia Z Ultra aka “Togari” is amidst rumours once again. The 6.44-inch rumoured phablet was teased by the Japanese manufacturer in a press invite for an event in Paris scheduled for July 4th at 09:30 a.m.The company had earlier released press invites in Germany for a June 20th event. Though the event is expected to be a launch for the phablet, the invites did not have any images of the phone. The recently sent invite in Paris however, clearly gives a sneak peek of the forthcoming device.

The invite says, “Sony Mobile reserves a big surprise for you.” It can be assumed that the ‘big’ in the sentence is an indicator for the phablet’s big screen. The invite shows a side view of the device revealing a circular power button as seen in the Xperia Z series. Unlike the usual placement, the phablet is seen having a headphone jack on the side along with a dedicated camera button towards the bottom. The rumoured thin profile of the phablet is certainly supported by what we see in the invite.

The device is rumoured to have a Snapdragon 800 processor with a clock speed of 2.3GHz alongside 2GB of RAM. This device is also expected to come with a 2700mAh or a 3000mAh battery. It is also known to come with the X-Reality Engine, which happens to be an upgrade to the Sony’s mobile Bravia Engine 2. It is also rumoured to come with 16GB internal storage and expandable memory through a microSD card slot. The phablet will feature an 8-megapixel camera and 2.2-megapixel front-facing camera. The known dimensions of the device are 179.2 x 92 x 6.5mm with a weight of 212g.

Moreover, GSM Arena reported that the phablet will run on Android 4.2.2 beside a different skin from Sony in the interface. The UI of the Xperia line up happens to be one of the least skinned interfaces out there, the website revealed screenshots that though a bit enhanced from the present UI, are still in accordance to the earlier tradition.

The phablet has been rumored to be water resistant but the open headphone jack without any cover, indicates otherwise. The handwritten text with the stylus however clearly hints at the presence of a stylus with the phablet. If that is indeed true, Sony’s first phablet might be a ‘note’-worthy competitor for the Samsung Galaxy Note series.
