Sony Xperia Z Ultra To Launch In India On 31st July?
Sources say that Sony is all set to launch its high-end phablet, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra in India soon. An online portal suggested that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra will be available in India starting July 31st. However, there is no confirmation form Sony about its release date.
At an event in Germany last month, Sony officially announced the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, a new smartphone with a 6.4-inch full high-definition screen which is powered by quad core a Snapdragon 800 chipset.
The 6.4-inch, 1,920 by 1,080 pixel display is what Sony calls a TRILUMINOUS Display, incorporating technology from the Bravia television line, including the X-Reality video-enhancing software.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra works with a stylus (or any pencil, Sony says) and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. There’s a powerful Adreno 330 GPU to push all the pixels to the screen too, a part of the new Snapdragon 800 chipset, which also packs a quad-core Krait 400 processor clocked at 2.2GHz.
At 6.5 mmm Sony is heralding the phone as the “world’s slimmest and largest full HD smartphone.”
Other specs of the phone include an 8-megapixel camera, a 3,000 mAh battery and 16 gigabytes of internal storage, with about 11 GB available to the user, and a microSD card slot for extra space. (Props to Sony for being up-front about the usable storage space).
The battery, on the other hand, is a quite respectable 3000mAh, though that screen will definitely eat it up faster than more conventional phones. Looking at the UK pricing it seems that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra will be available in India at around Rs 45, 000. But considering the competition in the phablets market, we believe that Sony should price it around RS 40,000.
