Alleged picture of the Sony Xperia ZU phablet leaks before announcement
posted by Daniel P. / Jun 24, 2013, 9:20 AM
The pics show a pretty large bezel top and bottom, which, if the phone is indeed with a 6.44" screen, would be a big hurdle to portability and manageability, explaining why it appeared serving as a kitten holder recently. Also, in line with the rumor that it will sport a screen tech that allows you to doodle with a regular pen or pencil on it, instead of a dedicated stylus, the hand in the picture seems to be drawing on a Post-it note stuck to the display, instead of on the actual screen.
The second leaked handset in the pictures below that Sony is supposed to unveil tomorrow, is said to be the Xperia SP for China, with quad-core MediaTek processor and dual SIM capabilities. Sony is also said to unveil a smartwatch of its own, so tune in tomorrow when all mysteries will be cleared.
"Also, in line with the rumor that it will sport a screen tech that allows you to doodle with a regular pen or pencil on it, instead of a dedicated stylus,..." Very interesting...:)

Why would u use a stylus when u can use a pencil? If u lose a stylus u need to buy another stylus that is more expensive than a pencil but if u lose a pencil u can buy another pencil that is way cheaper than stylus. cheapest and smartest way than a stylus lol

The S Pen gives you much more functionality than a pencil would. There is the hover feature for previewing videos, photos, and website sub-menus. You can also add different pens, pencils and brushes all with different colors with a S Pen. And who keeps losing S Pens? Set the alarm on it, and it will let you know your leaving it behind. S Pen is far superior to a simple pencil, but it would be cool to be able to use both.

As the previous commenter noted it is easier to replace a pencil than it is a stylus. Also, it would be better to write with than a regular stylus. The stylus that comes with the Note is just too small to be able to write comfortably for anything longer than a quick note.

Really. I just wanna see how does a simple "pencil" would compete with Stylus. Stylus is small, I know. Hard to use. But stylus has many features and functionality May be Sony has something innovative this time.

I want this to be a spectacular device. Even the Note 3 shouldn't be able to keep up with this piece of elegance. Not that I hate Samsung. Just pointing out that everything needs change. People switched from iphone to Samsung. Now its time for Sony

The camera is left of the middle on the first picture. The second picture is likely to be the rumoured low end 5 incher for certain markets.
