Sony outed the rumored Xperia UL today, Japan only for now, and it injects some nice bump in the specs of a phone like the Xperia Z. It sports a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB storage, and a 2300 mAh battery.
15-shot burst camera mode now, which is rather impressive, but it also calls the Xperia Z's water- and dust-tight certification, and raises it with a physical shutter key on the side, as well as a cool thin LED notification light underneath the display.The Xperia UL flaunts
The screen is again a 5" Full HD 1080p endeavor, but it's not clear if the contrast and viewing angles are of the same caliber like as the Z, or there's been an upgrade in this respect, too. It might be a different panel, as Sony compares its sensor-on-lens technology with the Xperia V, flaunts the lower reflectance ratio, and provides a manual color gamut settings app, which you can see in the slideshow below.
The Xperia UL is launching on KDDI's au May 25th in white, black and the obligatory pink, joining NTT DoCoMo's Xperia A in the line of Sony Androids exclusive for Japan this season.
