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.
