Sony has been bringing the fight with its handsets as of late and the recent announcement of th Xperia Z Ultra shows that it’s not done yet. Yes, the phablet device we’ve known as the Togari for some time now is finally official.
The Xperia Z Ultra is a massive phablet device that rocks a 6.4 inch 1080p HD Triluminos display, which is a first from Sony. The handset also rocks a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800, 2GB RAM, 8 megapixel camera, LTE support, Android 4.2 and more. While the handset ships with only 16GB of internal storage, users will be able to throw a 64GB micro SD card inside this baby and be off.
The Xperia Z Ultra has also received the same treatment as the Xperia Z and Tablet Z by being water and dust resistant.
Sony’s aiming right at the Galaxy Note line with this device, so it shouldn’t come as a shock that the Z Ultra supports stylus input. Not only that, though, as the Z Ultra can detect input from a regular graphite pencil and certain metal pens, depending on the size of the tip.
Expect the Xperia Z U to land some time in third quarter in purple, black, and white. There’s still no word on a US release of the handset, but we’ll be keeping you up to date if the powerful phablet device is announced on our side of the pond.
