It goes without saying that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is one rather impressive device, with high end specifications that are capable of holding out on its own against the other flagship models from different manufacturers. Having said that, who could argue with the performance of a Snapdragon 800 chipset, and when accompanied by a 6.44” Full HD Triluminos display, your eyes will definitely be more than happy to keep on viewing videos and photos non-stop on it. Of course, since nothing is perfect in this world, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra does have its shortcomings, too, although those are not entirely deal breakers in my book. It could have done better with a LED flash to go alongside a better camera, and an infra-red sensor might be deemed to be important to some – as owners of the Xperia Tablet Z and Xperia ZL have found out.
Well, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra image that was published by Sony Mobile on its Facebook page do depict that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra could have arrived with an infra-red sensor, where the white colored device showed off an IR sensor that was located right next to the camera lens. Needless to say, this particular feature never made it to the final device, and perhaps things might change for the better with the soon to arrive Honami flagship device.
