Sony's 6.5" Togari phablet to come as Xperia ZU, sport a 1080p Triluminous display
By now everyone and their cat know that Sony is prepping a phablet of its own to take on Samsung's Note line, just like LG does with the G Pro, or Huawei with the Ascend Mate. Well, from the looks of it, the 6.44-incher, codenamed Togari, will likely take on the Mega line, judging from the screen size bandied about, but that's another story.
Sony today issued press invitations for a June 25th event in Germany, where the Togari phablet is rumored to be unveiled. It turns out that the first big-screen phone from Sony might be named Xperia ZU (from Ultra/Ultimate?). The handset is said to have a 1080p Full HD display with Sony's new Triluminous technology, power it with a Snapdragon 600 or 800, depending on whose report you believe, and sport an 8MP Exmor RS camera module.
That screen alone will be a sight to behold, especially with the added stylus shenanigans speculated, but the European launch venue, and the previous rumors that it will come to the US unlocked via the Sony Store, likely mean that we won't see it launched with subsidies on a US carrier. It's a shame, if all those specs pan out, as they also include the now obligatory for Sony flagships IP58 certification, meaning it will be waterproof.
