Sony recently announced a phablet of their own which should have the folks over at Samsung sit up and take notice, that Sony Mobile as a company is far from finished, but rather, they have been growing from strength to strength. Sony’s range of Xperia handsets have also started to look pretty delicious by all means – they are well designed, and function satisfactorily to boot. Having said that, Sony seems to be moving in a new direction by introducing a sense of ruggedness to their devices, like water-resistance into the Xperia Z. The Xperia Z Ultra will be more or less a phablet version of the smartphone, and the recently announced device has made its way to the FCC already.
Unfortunately, details concerning the handset’s actual release date remains pretty much unknown to us, but we do know that interest on the ground is picking up for the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, as it happens to be one of the first devices that will run on the spanking new Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor that has been clocked at 2.2GHz, while boasting a quad-core configuration.
