Sony announces Xperia Z Ultra, a 6.4-inch Xperia Z on steroids


Did you ever want the Sony Xperia Z except a little larger? Or perhaps the Samsung Galaxy Note II except with Sony’s charm and elegance? Well your time has come. Sony have unveiled the Xperia Z Ultra, and no, it’s not just an overclocked Xperia Z. It’s a 6.4-inch super phone — yes, it’s a phone, not a tablet — with a 1080p Reality Display, along with a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage.

It’s amazingly only 6.5mm in thickness and weighs 212 grams. Inside you’ll find a 3000mAh battery, microSD slot, and an 8MP camera. Sony is adamant that this can be used with one hand as it’s the size of a passport. We don’t think one-handed use is at all a viable option; even the video below shows it being used with two hands. The Xperia Z Ultra is waterproof and dust-resistant just to add dot points to the impressive list of specs.

So when can you get your hands on the Xperia Z Ultra? Who knows. Sony haven’t got any regional availability information at the moment, let alone a price. We can’t wait to find out just how feasible a device this size is. What do you guys think?

    Impressive! A bit too big for my likes but still great.

    Strewth, what a beast!

    No IR blaster, no camera flash whaaaaat. Could have been a great phone

    • Sean Royce

      Bit late to comment, but it’s quite odd that it has no camera flash. IR blaster I could care less about.

  • CatLovingMan

    I’ll still wait for a Note 3, or Mega, but it’s good that Samsung has some competition at this end of the market.

  • Mr C

    Did anybody in the video actually make a call with it? I want to see how big it is against someone’s head!

  • Craig

    This only makes me want an 8″ Xperia tablet even more. Make it happen Sony!
