Sony has finally unveiled its long rumored Xperia Z Ultra phablet also known as the Togari boasting a massive 6.4-inch Full HD display which will be able to support any stylus with a conductive tip, including a regular pencil. The phablet like other Xperia Z series devices is rugged in nature and can survive an occasional dunk in the pool.
The phablet is 6.5mm thick only and weighs 212 grams. It includes a 6.44-inch Full HD (1080p) display with TRILUMINOS technology earlier seen on Sony’s Bravia HDTVs. As speculated, it is powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 MSM8974 quadcore processor clocked at 2.2GHz
The phone is waterproof and dust proof and is IP58 certified which is better than the IP55/IP57 of the Xperia Z. The phablet can be used to click pictures underwater just as we had seen in its bigger variant. This apart, it features X-Reality for optimizing photos and video for a better visual experience by even upscaling low-res content to work on the 1080p display. On the software front, the phablet runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and packs in Sony’s new Walkman app along with Movies app, and Album app, with updated sharing functionality and better integration with the cloud.
This apart there is an 8-megapixel Exmor RS rear camera. The company claims that the battery of the phablet will offer up to 14 hours of talktime and 790 hours of standby time. On the connectivity front there is NFC, WiFi, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G LTE support.
The interesting part remains that the stylus support for the phablet will allow users to sketch or make notes with any stylus or pencil with a conductive tip.
The Sony Xperia Z will be available in black, white, and purple colors and will be bundled with a water-resistant Bluetooth handset.
The company has yet not revealed the price for the device, however has announced that it will be launched globally in Q3 of this year.
