Sony pushed the phablet’s boundaries further last year with the Xperia Z Ultra. Its defining feature is most definitely the 6.4-inch full HD Triluminos display with X-reality for mobile. While the company hasn’t revealed official sales figures it looks like it may be having some problems in moving these units off the shelves. Which is why in just one week two different variants of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra have received price cuts.
Earlier this week the Google Play Edition variant of this smartphone saw its price being slashed by $200. That variant is sold through the Google Play Store both off contract and unlocked. The only difference is that it runs stock Android and doesn’t feature any OEM or carrier modifications in its software.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra LTE variant is sold through the official Sony online store. Prior to the price cut it cost $679.99. Now it can be purchased through the website straight away for $449.99. This variant is also unlocked and off contract so customers can use it only supported carrier of their choice.
If the massive size doesn’t put you off the Xperia Z Ultra really does have impressive specifications, by 2013 standards that is. It has a 2.2Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quadcore processor with 2GB RAM, 8 megapixel rear camera as well as a waterproof and dust resistant ultra slim body.
