Sony Announces Xperia Z Ultra, Thinnest Full HD Smartphone with 6.4″ Screen [Video]

Sony just unveiled the Xperia Z Ultra, packing a 6.4″ display 1080p resolution.

The Xperia Z Ultra runs Qualcomm’s latest and greatest mobile processor, the 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 and has 4G LTE connectivity.

Don’t be fooled by the gigantic screen thinking it will be a big device, the Xperia Z is the thinnest full HD smartphone ever announced with only 6.5mm!
Internal memory is 16GB, with a microSD slot that supports up to 64GB. Sony has also pumped the battery pack up to 3,000mAh.

That 1080p screen is also the first smartphone display to debut Sony’s Triluminos tech which promises a wider and richer color gamut. It does come with a stylus but you can also draw on the screen using any pencil you like.

Like Sony’s existing mini-apps, you’ll be able to jot down notes and sketches on top of other apps, including during calls, which could make it a tempting device for business-types. Imaging chops come in the form of an 8-megapixel Exmor RS sensor (capable of HDR video and stills) and a front-facing 2-megapixel camera, while the Xperia Z Ultra will be running on Google’s very latest Android iteration, 4.2 (Jelly Bean)

The Xperia Z Ultra comes in Black, White and Purple and will be available in Q3 this year.
