Sony has given us our first official glimpse of the Xperia Z Ultra, the electronics giant’s first stab creating a smartphone/tablet hybrid.
Hot on the heels of two leaked images earlier this week, Sony has begun sending out invites to a media event in Paris on July 4th containing a partial shot of a super-slim handset that can only be the Xperia Z Ultra.
Measuring a staggering 6.44-inch thin, the Z Ultra is said to feature a 6.4-inch full HD display, firmly pushing it into the ‘phablet’ territory. This reportedly boasts Sony’s latest X-Reality video processing technology and a new type of touchscreen sensor that detects inputs from pens and pencils.
Powering the device is Android 4.2 Jelly Bean with a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, plus 2GB of RAM. There’s also an eight-megapixel camera with an Exmor RS sensor and a 2.2-megapixel front-cam for video calling.
Although the invite suggests Sony will showcase the handset next month, it is actually expected to announce it a bit sooner at a press gathering in Germany on June 25th.
Stay tuned as we bring you more Xperia Z Ultra news and developments in the weeks to come.
