Sony has just revealed their first phablet device – the Xperia Z Ultra. The phone takes in an HD display of 6.4-inches with a new Triluminous display technology, a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU and the same waterproof & dustproof body from the Xperia Z, all at the thinness of 6.5mm.
In addition to those behemoth-like specs, Sony says that the Z Ultra also has support for any pencil or pen whose tip is over 1mm. Not everyone will enjoy a smartphone beyond 5-inches, but other than that and the lower-res 8MP camera, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra just became the smartphone to beat.
