Sony expands its mobile lineup with a new superphone and a new companion device
Bigger is better, right? Well, that's what
AT&T's current series of commercials
have told us. It seems as though Sony subscribes to that theory as well because the company just dropped a monster smartphone on an unsuspecting public: the Xperia Z Ultra.
The new Xperia Z Ultra comes equipped with a mammoth 6.4" 1080p display featuring Sony's Triluminous technology. Triluminous technology leverages Sony's experience with its Bravia televisions to crease richer colors and sharper video.
Powering this giant smartphone is a
quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
running at a whopping 2.2GHz. Sony has thrown everything but the kitchen sink inside the Xperia Z Ultra including Android 4.2.2, 16GB of internal storage, a microSD slot, LTE connectivity, a 3,000 mAh battery, 8MP Exmor RS sensor (rear), 2MP front-facing camera and IP55/IP58 compliance for waterproof and dust-resistant protections.
The Xperia Z is just 6.5mm thick and weighs 7.48 ounces.
The latest and greatest from Sony will launch during the third quarter and will be available in white, black, and purple.
In other Sony news, it has announced its SmartWatch 2 companion device for Android devices. The SmartWatch 2 features a 1.6", 220x176 touch screen and dust- and water-resistant aluminum body. The device supports NFC and Bluetooth, and can accept incoming calls from your smartphone (if you don't mind looking silly talking into your wrist).
"Competitors are only now launching first generation devices, while we are already launching a 3rd generation device with all the insight gained from over half a million customers combined with Sony's wealth of technology expertise to create the best ever smartwatch experience," said Stefan K Persson, Head of Companion Products at Sony Mobile Communications.
"The future of wearable devices is incredibly bright with analyst research predicting 41 million 'smart' watches will be sold by 2016. We have over 200 unique apps dedicated for Sony SmartWatch with over one million downloads to date and we are continuing to work with our strong developer network to deliver ever more compelling smartwatch experiences."
The Sony SmartWatch 2 will be available worldwide in September.
