We’ve heard rumors about Sony’s own six-inch phablet in the works, even seen photos of the Sony phablet display. At the time, we were informed that Sony’s phablet would be called the Sony Xperia ZU, have a 6.5-inch display, and run on possibly a Snapdragon 800 processor.
Now, Sony’s Xperia blog has leaked some screenshots of the coming “Togari” phablet, which will be announced in July 2013 as the Xperia Z Ultra. The screenshots reveal that the device will be 6.21 inches (total screen size is 6.44 inches), and will have a Snapdragon 800 processor with Adreno 330 GPU.
The Xperia Z Ultra will also have 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory storage, and according to the leaked photos a 1824 x 1080 screen resolution. While the screen resolution does not seem to match that of even 5-inch screen handsets such as the GS4 (1920 x 1080), it still has a full HD display (as the lowered resolution is most likely accounting for the on screen buttons). We do not know if the device will have a microSD card slot, but we do know that the device will run Android 4.2.2, the latest iteration of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
The 16GB Xperia Z Ultra will likely have a little under 12GB of storage remaining after you count the memory occupied by the OS (the unlocked version). We do not know if the Xperia Z Ultra, the Xperia Z’s larger brother, will make it to American carriers. Stay tuned to to PhoneBuff as we’ll be updating you if we hear anything new.
