Sony Xperia Z Ultra official specifications and launch date
If we are to observe the current smartphone trends, there is no doubt that the border between smartphones and tablets is thinner than ever. Sony acknowledged this trend, and they have build a new smartphone, bigger more powerful than most smartphones today: Sony Xperia Z Ultra. According to Sony, Z Ultra is the slimmest full HD smartphone, featuring Full HD resolution (1080p) and a 6.4 inch display with X-Reality technology that will enhance the image. The top-specs don’t stop here, because Z Ultra is powered by one of the fastest mobile processors on the market, the 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 by Qualcomm, offering processing speeds comparable to the ones we see in today’s laptops.
Although the smartphone weights 212 grams, Sony packed everything into a waterproof and dust resistant slim case, so you won’t even feel the weight of it. The storage memory available is 11GB (from 16GB total built-in storage), but the customer can buy an extra microSD slot and add additional storage (up to 64GB). If you have read my previous posts, you know that I’m a big fan of photography, so you can understand my disappointing when I have found out that the main camera has only 8-megapixels sensor. Although it’s capable of shooting HDR videos and stills, I still think that this smartphone deserves a better camera.
According to Sony, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra will be available in three colors (white, black, purple). There was no statement on the price.
