The Sony Xperia Z Ultra smartphone, which had been listed as ‘coming soon’ on online store Saholic, a day back, has now got a price tag of Rs. 44,990. The listing promises a delivery time of 7 days for Delhi PIN-codes, so it’s likely that Sony might make an official announcement within this week. It also bundles a 16GB memory card with the phone.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra sports a sleek look with a thickness of 6.5mm, and weighs 212 grams. It features a 6.4-inch full-HD display with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels and boasts of Sony’s proprietary BRAVIA Engine 2. It is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor coupled with 2GB of RAM. It offers 16GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 64GB via microSD card. The Xperia Z Ultra sports an 8-megapixel Exmor RS rear camera and a 2-megapixel front facing camera. The device includes LTE, NFC, Wi-Fi, 3G, DLNA and Bluetooth connectivity options. It has a 3000mAh battery that Sony claims could deliver up to 14 hours of talktime and 768 hours of standby time.
Just like the Xperia Z and Xperia Z Tablet, the Xperia Z Ultra is also dust and water proof and comes with IP55 and IP58 certification. The Sony Xperia Z Ultra comes with handwriting recognition support and the device’s screen can work with a pencil or a stylus/ pen that has a tip of more than 1mm(in diameter). It also comes with new and updated Sony Media Applications that include apps like Walkman, Movies and Album.
Last month, the company announced the Xperia Z Ultra for select markets and it was expected that the phone would be globally launched in Q3, 2013.
Meanwhile, Sony introduced the ‘Big Xperia Xchange’ offer that includes a minimum assured discount of Rs. 5,000 when customers exchange their old smartphone for a Sony Xperia Z or Xperia ZL.
It’s worth mentioning that Sony has not officially confirmed the pricing of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. It has also not shared any information on the availability of the phone.
