The mammoth, 6-inch Xperia T2 Ultra gets snapped in full hands-on glory

The mammoth, 6-inch Xperia T2 Ultra gets snapped in full hands-on glory
A steady flow of hands-on snaps of the newly-announced 6-inch Sony Xperia T2 Ultra has been coming from each and every direction. Whether you'll see that as a good sign for the Japanese company's mid-range, affordable phablet is up to you. Either way, the good folks over at the Xperia Blog have curated a collection of hands-on materials from several corners of the web.

For starters, the Xperia T2 Ultra is an important device, in that is shows a continued dedication to IPS LCD display tech. Sony, known for sticking to its own solutions, seems to have finally heeded the not-so-hushed voices, which is admirable. The T2 Ultra is the second Sony device to sport an IPS panel, as the Xperia Z1 Compact beat it to it. Whether Sony stays true to that trend remains unknown for the time being. 

Those of you who missed out on the introduction of the Xperia T2 Ultra, here's what you need to know. It'll sport a 6-inch, 720x1280 resolution IPS display, driven by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 and 1GB of RAM. It's also got a 13-megapixel camera unit with an Exmor RS sensor in tow, and a healthy, 3000mAh cell that should prove quite enduring. As of right now, we're only sure of several markets that will get to see Sony's new phablet: the Middle East and Africa, Asia Pacific, and China. Murmurs peg the price at about €399 ($545), with hints of European availability on its way.

Dont get why phonearena just change the euro price to dollars. All electronics are more expensive outside of the US. For example, the Galaxy S4 In France, they are selling it for 790 euros, if you just change the currency, we get 1075 dollars. Which is a lot more than what they are selling in the US's 700 to 750 sim free price. So, no. That might be the price in Europe, but not the US

Apple uses aluminium which actually costs so less to buy than plastic, though users complain that it feels cheap and tacky....

I think Sony is shifting its design language to that of ZL this year and its beautiful. Happy to see IPS in Sony, hope it continues.
