Sony announces the 6-inch Xperia T2 Ultra and T2 Ultra dual phablets

Sony has just announced a new mid-range entry to its phablet portfolio, dubbed the Xperia T2 Ultra and T2 Ultra dual. With the exception of an extra SIM card slot in the case of the latter, both are virtually identical, specs-wise. 

The Xperia T2 Ultra's highlight is obviously that massive 6-inch Triluminos screen, with a pixel resolution of 720x1280. The thin, 7.6mm phablet is powered by a quad-core, 1.4GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of microSD-expandable (up to 32GB extra) native storage. Sony boasts that the T2 Ultra sports a best-in-class, 13-megapixel camera with an Exmor RS for mobile sensor, at least according to a study it carried out. Up at the front, there's a 1.1-megapixel front-facing shooter with an Exmor R sensor, which should prove decent for the occasional selfie. The T2 Ultra is shaping up to be a wonderfully-connected device, too, with NFC and LTE capabilities in tow. Powering the entire show is a beefy 3000mAh battery of the non-removable type, so still kind of impressive, seeing as the phablet is so slender.

The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is slated for a global roll out, and is expected to hit markets in China, Asia Pacific, and the Middle Eass and Africa. Unfortunately, exactly when it'll be made available for purchase remains unknown, as does its price tag. Luckily for us, however, Sony has stated that the T2 Ultra will carry a "mid-range price point", and its press release does hint at a tag of less than €400 ($546), though this hasn't been explicitly confirmed. In either case, the T2 Ultra sounds like an awesome addition to the ever-growing list of 6''-and-above devices, and we'll be definitely keeping an eye out for it.

I like the design of these phones. Hopefully Sony's next flagship looks similar to these.

This is the only similarly designed phone that I won't complain... too premium looking! The camera shutter will bring many high end phones to shame

Sony's Kitkat UI seems to be super beautiful.Look at that pic and the on-screen button.Awesome! Hopefully Z2 will be a little smaller,then it's for me.I have phobia for phablets!

I think it's running Android 4.3 JB, because the UI looks like on the 4.3.

The status bar has white icons, so it may be Android 4.4

I can surely see the battery is green in color. Take a closer look! :)

It is probably Kitkat since there is transparent on-screen keyboard and also transparent status bar. I think it is probably similar UI since there isn't much to change

Sony's design language is definitely the best one out there. Just look at this beauty.

Size and design wise, this is how the Z Ultra should've been like! Oh and also it has the flash and better camera, of course. Stupid Sony..sigh

In what way they are stupid? Samsung flooded us with many useless, plastic phones. This is more relevant..

Stupid Sony fans? I was looking forward buying the Xperia Z Ultra, but when I saw the specs I couldn't believe their lack of logic for releasing such utterly oversized device with the lack of flash and outdated camera. All they had to do was to release a device like this, with 1080p screen and snapdragon 800 and it would be a hit instead of the huge flop as deserved. So I had to go with the Note 3!

Again and again I'm proud to say that I'm not a Sammy boy, I love Apple, LG, Nokia, Sony, HTC, Asus, and even Huawei! But not Sammy..

Failed, only 720p, crapdragon 400 with only 1gb ram... i bet it will come with horible price tag not to mention Sony battery life is so awful... If phablet, then note 3

I can understand your situation. I think you must learn how to comment, but its a good try as your second comment. Just a look at your name and everything is clear.

Shut up Wendy. This phone is a mid ranger for people that Couldn't afford a note 3. I think it's beautiful for a mid ranger and good for the price.

Wow almost perfect phone for me, since I don't really need NFC and LTE

Sony should have released the mini 6 inch version of z ultra by adding a flash and changing the display tech to ips rather than the TFT display. Spec wise z ultra is a monster and this T2 Ultra wont come anywhere near that. That humoungous size is the only reason why z ultra is not selling well. If that phone was in somewhere near 5.8 - 6 inch category, it could have challenge note 3. They could have atleast added a full hd screen and 2 gb ram to this T2 ultra.
