Sony Xperia ZU 6.4" phablet could let you use a pencil, Snapdragon 800 on board

0. phoneArena 14 Jun 2013, 02:42 posted on

Just as we heard, Sony might indeed be using a touchscreen tech on the Xperia ZU phablet that lets you doodle on it with a regular pen, not only a stylus, or even a pencil. Whether it is Neonode's tech or some other of those beaming bezels, remains to be seen, provided that the photo above is legit, of course...

apparently, the neonode touch tech on the togari is true. with those abnormally thick bezels, it would appear the neonode tech is in there. i just hope it also supports that other input type neonode demonstrated — the one where a player can play a racing game by just moving hands beside the device, without touching it.

Stamina mode is just a software gimmick like every other battery saver. You get the same poor battery life on the XZ whether it's on or not.

I hardly disagree on what you have said, stamina mode is not just a software gimmick! well battery usage will depend on the user and how he uses the device.

don't underestimate the Note III
(just saying)
we all know it will beat this device, but don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean the Xperia ZU is bad at all.

Um... wouldn't a pen leave a mark if not a scratch?

I think pens and pencils aren't hard enough to scratch Dragontrail or Gorilla Glass. Pens would probably leave ink, but you should be able the wipe it off .

It's not only Sony man!
Nokia with their Lumia series,
Samsung with their Galaxy series,
LG with their Optimus series,
Apple with the iPhone...all look the same.
And now HTC is coming up with the similar to One look alikes.

so an oversize xperia Z, they better market this thing as a tablet, because from the picture, I don't think that will fit in the pocket.

But when Samsung does it with the Mega 6.3, everyone seems to have no problem at all! Why with Sony's 6.4?

14. MCrapp (Posts: 312; Member since: 07 Apr 2013)


Sorry but for me this is tablet not phablet!this same Mega 6.3
And if Samsung make Note4 bigger than 6" it will be a tablet!

I know that.
I'm replying to Jason's pocket-ability issue regarding the Sony 6.4.

do you think 6'' is small? i think you must check galaxy mega 5.8

if i have the same point of view like you,
for me anything bigger than 5.5'' it will be a "small tablet"

bcoz nobody wants to buy mega 6.3 with mediocre specs but one might consuider zu because of exclusive feautures and top end specs.

anything with 5.5''+ display will have problem with any normal pocket

A good camera has more elements to it than megapixels. The GS4 and Xperia Z have the exact same camera module, but the GS4 takes much better shots because of Samsung's better software. Sony can afford to lose some megapixels if they focus more on software.

Exynos octa with cortex A15 clocked at 2.3 GHz will eat alive the Snapdragon 800.

29. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4109; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)


But the battery life would be absolute crap. Krait 300 and 400 can go to higher clock speeds to achieve A15-like or higher performance while maintaining a low power profile, without additional power saving cores.

exynos octa with lower clocks and similar performance has much worse battery life than SD 600 both on the SGSIV, according to GSMArena

BTW, I think heat is another issue

That battery seems a little low for such a large screen. The Note II has a 5.5" screen with a 3,100 mAh battery. Much larger screen + lower battery capacity = not good

"...and a 6.5mm thin frame"

are you sure that this is grammatically correct?

well basically bro, battery will depend on how you use your device :)
