That pic is xperia zr not xperia zu. Is it so hard to understand? Your ''such a large screen to body ratio'' argument is invalid

PA:pic of xperia zl surfaced. ME:this has large screen to body ratio. how on earth u declare me as sammy fanboys should shut their mouths if it dissapoints them with large bezels is it?no one is blind fanboys these days

i too got a feeling this might be false(image leak) but top tech sites have posted this news and have predicted this might be legit indeed.

Too damn big but love the design though. Sony makes great looking phones. One concern is the camera, for a phone of this caliper it seems average

oh please let that not be the togari. that ugly display does not stand up to the hype. if that's the triluminos display, sony is really doomed. that's just like the xperia z display. looks washed out. look at those bezels!

Its not togari I promise. The display will be better than samsung crapmoled

I dont think this is ZU. 1st, the bezel is too large for a 6.44 inch phablet with only 6.5mm thickness 2nd, the display doesnt seem like a triluminos display 3rd, if that's a man's lap, the 6.44 inch device doesnt seem right relative to the lap.

There is always one point Samsung gets right. The screen is huge but the bezels are always small. Other manufacturers phones just look too huge making their screens appear small instead.

the xperia zu volume buttons are below the power button. that's really not the togari. just compare that to this the front facing camera is also too big.

Bezel is huge, and viewing angels are terrible, so it's definitely a Sony.

This should be called as Tablet, instead of smartphone or phablet, as it's indeed a tablet...
