Sony today announced the Z Ultra, an Android smartphone that features a 6.4-inch full HD display. Sony says the screen has Triluminos technology to improve colors and Sony's mobile Bravia Engine and X-Reality technology for sharpness and clarity. Following in the Z's footsteps, the Z Ultra is water-resistant and has a slim design at just 6.5mm thick. The Z Ultra is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and supports HD voice with Sony's ClearAudio+ mode and Xloud loudness features. The Z Ultra supports a stylus, though it doesn't come with one, and has handwriting recognition software. The Z Ultra features an 8-megapixel camera with Sony's Exmor RS sensor, which supports HDR photos and video, as well as a 2-megapixel user-facing camera for video chats. The Z Ultra has a 3,000mAh battery and comes with Sony's Stamina mode for fine-tuning and extending battery life. Other features include Sony's Walkman software, 16GB of storage with support for 64GB microSD cards, and connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, quad-band GSM/EDGE and HSPA+ in the 850, 900, 1700, 1800, and 2100MHz bands. The Z Ultra runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and comes in black, white, and purple. It will launch in various markets during the third quarter.

Sounds great, But.....

Sounds great, But.....

Really you make a phone this big and that big of a screen with a smaller battery than the Note 2. This thing is going to have to be power hungry with the processor/screen and that size frame and your telling me you couldn't possibly add in a bigger battery? With a phone like this you better believe I am someone that is going to use this phone more than usual..
Better bring an extension cord with you... Or at least 5 backup batteries to keep that thing going... I don't understand who could really get full use out of a 6.4" phone... The Note/Note II are huge phones, but are still useable.. just hard to hold w...

For that buy a tablet
This phone makes it unnecessary to buy a tablet as well. Making phone calls with it would probably be best by the use of Bluetooth or wired ear bud instead of holding the phone to your ear. The specs are great though, except the battery capacity.

Big phone crash

Sooner or later we are going to hit the max size of a phone screen where customers will not buy maybe this is the phone. Lets see how far it will go.

This is clearly a trend. Phones are getting bigger. Much, much bigger. Huge bigger.

I'm thinking of installing cellular radios in a 23" flatscreen tv so I can beat the fad. I'll carry a car battery around in my backpack to give it power.

What do you guys think.. would I look as cool as a person holding an almost 7 inch screen to their face?
That's the only detail i can still not figure it out :S currently i have the Xperia S; the Z and ZL still not available in my country, and the Xperia S is just great, i would love to have same specs that the Z Ultra have in a phone of the same size th...
Heck yeah, make it touchscreen and add in a little software.... I'm seeing a multi-million dollar investment haha... Hell, I may buy one from you Smile jk jk jk jk
lol right its getting crazy but if it passes the poket text itl be nise to have that big screen
