Sony just unveiled its long awaited phablet during a special event in Asia and the Xperia Z Ultra is everything that it was rumored to be. We’re dealing with a 6.4 inch phablet with pencil input, waterproof abilities and a cool display.


This model is supposed to battle the Galaxy Note 3 starting from Q3 and it comes with a quad core Snapdragon 800 processor at 2.2 GHz. It also packs the new Sony Triluminous display technology, borrowed from Sony’s new TV portofolio. It supports natural Full HD resolution and its specs are top notch, including 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage and a microsD card slot. There’s also 4G LTE and HD voice, while at the back we find an 8 megapixel camera with Exmor RS sensor.


This is also a very thin handset, measuring 6.5 mm in thickness and opting for tempered glass for its chassis. It’s also a waterproof unit with IP58 certification and the ability to dunk at up to 5 feet of water for 30 minutes. Xperia Z Ultra weighs 212 grams, relies on a 3000 mAh battery and runs Android 4.2.2 with the Xperia UI on top.

The product will come in white, black and purple and I think it will give the Note 3 a run for the money
