Bottom-of-the-line, 6.1'' Sony phablet spotted on GFXBench

Bottom-of-the-line, 6.1'' Sony phablet spotted on GFXBench
According to a new GFXBench device sighting, Sony seems to be prepping a new entry-level Xperia phablet (D2203), and we now have a clue as to the type of hardware it will pack.

Starting off with the highlight of the device -- its giant, 6.1-inch display -- you better hold onto your chair: it's got a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels. That's about 160 pixels per inch, far below the sanitary minimum in this day and age. The rest of the unearthed specs include a Snapdragon 400 chip with four Cortex-A7 cores and an Adreno 305 GPU, 1GB of RAM, and just 4GB of built-in storage. The situation in the imaging department is no better -- we've got a 5-megapixel rear shooter, and an underwhelming, 0.3-megapixel front cam for selfies and video calls. The device ran Android 4.4.2 KitKat at the time of the test.

Obviously, despite the seemingly negative tone, the above configuration may be very much stomach-able should Sony actually price this one right. We currently have no information pertaining to Sony's plans for this device, and the regions it's eyeing for its release.

I think Sony is taken over by bunch of baboons, means what were they thinking or may be they weren't thinking. Low pixel screen, 400 snapdragon processor and 5 megapixel camera? ??? They are nuts

The Z Ultra is definitely one of my great favourites in my collection. I have a soft spot for it despite its querks and those swift and frequent software updates by Sony made it almost perfect. Now I would love to see Sony bringing in a Z Ultra 2 with the following wishlist specs: 1. 64-bit Snapdragon 810 or NVIDIA 64-bit ARMv8 SoC which is a sequel to its Tegra K1 chip. 2. RAM 4 GB 3. Device internal storage 128 GB 4. External SD up to 128 GB 5. OLED 4k display (maintain same size of 6.44 inch) - Sony after all is the originator of OLED screens and already produce them for industrial and medical applications 6. Sony's top of the line cameras front and rear (for those who want to make great videos, photos and selfies) 7. Significant reduction in the bazel to make it a smaller phone while retaining the same screen size 8. Androids latest (of course) In my opinion such device need not be a mere dream.
