Sony Mobile Communication on Tuesday introduced the world’s largest smartphone to date: Xperia Z Ultra with 6.4” display. The new überphone from Sony not only features the largest display for a phone, but is also based on the most powerful application processor to date, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800.

 

Sony Xperia Z Ultra is waterproof, dust resistant, ultra-slim (6.5mm) smartphone with full-HD TriLumiNos display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.20GHz clock-speed as well as 4G/LTE, NFC and HD voice to provide the best smartphone experience possible. The Xperia Z Ultra is uniquely positioned to offer the ultimate big screen phone entertainment experience for watching movies, playing games, reading books and browsing the web. The Xperia Z Ultra smartphone weighs 212 grams, the weight more comparable to media tablets. Sony Xperia Z Ultra is based on Google Android 4.x operating system.

“The Xperia Z Ultra is the most exciting revolution in large-screen smartphone entertainment devices with both the slimmest and largest Full HD smartphone display in the world that is second to none. We are already bringing the best of Sony technology and design across a range of premium smartphones and tablets, and now we are bringing this same premium offering to the large-screen smartphone segment, setting a new standard for others to follow,” said Calum MacDougall, director of Xperia marketing at Sony Mobile Communications.

The Magnetic Charging Dock DK30 has an innovative magnetic pin that lets owners place their Xperia Z Ultra snugly in the dock using one hand, either with or without the phone cover on. While the phone is charging, it stands at a comfortable viewing angle easily allowing you to keep watching movies even while charging.

The Xperia Z Ultra will launch globally from Q3 2013 (exact timing of availability will vary by market). The Xperia Z Ultra will be  available in a choice of black, white or purple colour finishes.
