Watch out Galaxy Note! Sony Xperia Z Ultra has 6.41-inch 1080p display, 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800, and large battery


Phablets like the Galaxy Note don’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. So to take advantage of that, Sony has decided to join the fray. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra, like any good phablet, has a ridiculously large 1080p screen at 6.41-inches. But the company didn’t just slap a larger screen on their flagship Xperia Z, they’ve added a bunch of other things that make the Xperia Z Ultra a worthy competitor to Samsung’s popular Galaxy Note devices.

First off, the Xperia Z Ultra has the guts to match its massive body. The phone (or tablet) has a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor powering it, 2GB of RAM and, quite importantly, a 3,000mAh battery — you’re gonna need a lot of juice if you’ve got a large screen like that after all. Also, the phone is extremely thin. The Xperia Z Ultra is slightly heavier than a Galaxy Note II, but it more than makes up for that with its 6.5mm thinness.

Fans of the Galaxy Note’s stylus need not worry either, because while the Xperia Z Ultra doesn’t come with one, you can use any pencil, stylus or pen to write or sketch. The only limitation is that metal pens must have a tip diameter over 1mm. Finally, like it’s smaller smartphone brother, it’s also dust resistant and water proof.

Sony is planning to launch the Xperia Ultra Z in the third quarter of this year, in multiple colors. No price has been announced yet.
