One of the most anticipated devices right now is the Sony Xperia ZU. Screenshots from a prototype confirm most of the high-end specs that you would expect from a unit like this. The only difference from expectations is with the screen size which is listed at 6.21 inches instead of the 6.44 inches that the screen was supposed to measure. The difference could be Sony's navigation bar. And while .23 of an inch might not sound like a lot, it would be the difference between calling the Sony Xperia ZU a large-screened phone and calling it the largest screened model in the industry. Currently, that honor goes to the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 with its 6.3 inch panel.
The rest of the specs confirmed by the phone's system info page include the Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset and the Adreno 330 GPU. Android 4.2.2 is listed as running the phone. There is also 16GB of native storage and 2GB of RAM. In other words, everything you've been hearing about the device appears to be true.
