Sony Xperia Z Ultra leaks shows Snapdragon 800 chip and pencil used as stylus
Sony's forthcoming Xperia Z Ultra has leaked again with specs and pictures
More leaks have emerged of the rumoured Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet, a device poised to challenge the Samsung Galaxy Note’s dominance. A leaked spec sheet supports the rumoured Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core chip thought to be onboard. It’s pegged with a 2.2GHz clockspeed.
The leak emerged via Chinese site ePrice and shows the device is IP55 and IP58 certified, meaning that just like the Xperia Z it’ll be water and dust resistant and waterproof up to around a metre.
Also onboard will be 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage space and it will support microSD up to 64GB. The details confirm the display will be a 6.4-inch Triluminos with Sony’s X-Reality engine (an evolution of its Mobile Bravia Engine 2, according to rumours) and a 1920x1080 pixel Full HD resolution at 342 pixels-per-inch (ppi). It’ll also feature OptiContrast technology.
Camera tech appears to be and Exmor RS 8-megapixel snapper with HDR on the rear and a 1.3-megapixel front-facing Exmor R setup. The phone will also have NFC, Wi-Fi, MHL and a 3,000mAh battery pack.
Alongside the spec sheet there’s an image showing the display being drawn on with a pencil. Previous rumours said the device would come with a stylus, but the super-sensitive screen will allow other objects to be used as a stand-in stylus should the need arise.
There’s no way of telling whether all or part of this information, both spec list and photo, is fabricated or if it’s legit. Leaks both real and fake do have a habit of intensifying as product launches approach and Sony has already announced an event taking place in Paris, France on June 25 and it’s teased on the invitations with pictures of a stylus pen. That’s pretty conclusive for what’s coming on that date as far as we’re concerned.
Hopefully this spec sheet will prove accurate as that’s a mighty fine line-up of hardware.
