Sony Xperia Z Ultra 6.44″ phone announced with magnetic dock

Monday 1st July 2013 by William Judd in Android, Mobile Accessories.

In keeping with the oversized smartphone trend, Sony have announced one of the largest smartphones ever: the Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The phone has a 6.4″ display at 1920 x 1080p, yet is thinner than the iPhone 5 at just 6.5 mm.

Inside the phone are specifications that beat the earlier Xperia Z, with a Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor clocked at 2.2 GHz, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of storage plus micro SD. All of this is powered with a 3,000 mAh battery. One thing that’s been downgraded a bit is the camera – just 8 megapixels without a flash.

Of course, that big screen makes it ideal for taking notes with a stylus, which is included with the phone. The phone also comes with a companion Bluetooth headset that’ll allow you to take calls without getting that Dom Joly look.

Sony have also announced a few other Sony Xperia Z Ultra accessories, including a rather nifty Xperia Z Ultra Magnetic Charging Dock. The dock uses the phone’s pogo pins too, so the micro USB port is left free for other accessories. The dock’s also compatible with thin Xperia Z Ultra cases, which is pretty cool too.

The Xperia Z Ultra looks great if you want to watch movies, play games or read on your phone. With the Ultra, you don’t really need a tablet! It’ll be interesting to see what Samsung’s Note III looks like, as it’s likely that the two phones will go head to head as they’re released this autumn.
