As a huge fan of Sony's Xperia Z, I'm loving the look of their new Xperia Z Ultra, Sony's new 'phablet'. Samsung may be pushing the boundaries with a 5.5-inch Galaxy Note II, but Sony have gone for the home stretch with a 6.4-inch smartphone.

The 6.4-inch display is greeted with a beautiful 1920x1080-pixel display, which provides us with 344 PPI. Sony have jam-packed the device with multiple input methods, where you can use a regular pencil or a pen as a stylus, as well as it being a capacitive stylus. Not only is the display gorgeous, but it is running the latest and greatest System on a Chip (SoC) from Qualcomm: the Snapdragon 800.

This means we have a quad-core processor clocking in at 2.2GHz, making it the Xperia Z Ultra the first official device with the Snapdragon 800 SoC as its heart. We have Android 4.2.2 as the OS, with a revamped Sony software that will make better use of the 6.4-inch 1080p display. The Xperia Z Ultra is waterproof, like its sibling, and has 4G LTE connectivity, HD Voice as well as NFC.

 

Sony are pushing the Xperia Z Ultra as the world's thinnest 1080p smartphone as it measures in at just 6.5mm thick. We have a 3,000mAh battery and this entire powerhouse of a smartphone weighs in at just 212g. We should expect Sony to launch it in Q3 of this year.
