This time last year there was an incredible fuss around the impending launch of Sony's Xperia Z Ultra. The massive 6.4-inch FHD smartphone may not be a huge success in terms of sales, but the concept garnered appreciation nonetheless.
One year after the launch of Xperia Z Ultra, it appears that Sony might come with yet another huge handset, most likely to called the Xperia Z Ultra 2.
Sony has turned to Twitter to spread the word that a new premium handset is on the way. While no one can exactly predict whether the new handset would be the successor to the Xperia Z Ultra, chances are high to see a monster phone with a premium price tag attached to it.
On Monday, Sony teased an image alongside with the following comment: "Shh... do you want to know a secret? Stay tuned for the next big thing this season." The image shows off a new phone with Sony's signature power button, a volume rocker and dedicated camera button.
Hardware details aren't known at this point, but the device could sport a QHD display, a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU, 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with LED Flash, among other features.
Also unknown is whether it will arrive in Indian market, though we'll hopefully learn more about the company's upcoming handset in coming days to come.
Just for the reminder, the original Sony Xperia Z Ultra can be purchased at a price of Rs. 36,360 through online shopping sites. The current phone sport a 6.4-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of ROM, a microSD card slot, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera without LED Flash, Wi-Fi, GPS, 3G, and last but not the least a 3,050mAh battery fitted inside.
