Japan based smartphone maker Sony, who has been incorporating excellent camera and build technologies on its smartphones, especially in its Xperia lineup, has now secretly listed its latest giant phablet called the Xperia T2 Ultra via online retailer Saholic. The company has priced the device at Rs. 32,000. However, the e-commerce site says that the device will be delivered by February 26th. Additionally the site is also offering the same device on EMI of Rs. 1,996.
It should be noted that the device was globally launched last month alongside Xperia E1, which is supposedly Sony's mid-range smartphone with 4-inch WVGA display.
Going by the specs, the handset boasts a 6 inch TFT LCD TRILUMINOS display along with X-Reality picture engine offering an HD resolution of 720 x 1080 pixels. It is powered by a 1.4 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon (MSM8928 for LTE and MSM8228 for 3G) processor with Adreno 305 GPU coupled with 1GB RAM and runs on Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) OS.
The Xperia T2 Ultra sports a 13-megapixel rear camera with Sony Exmor RS sensor, LED flash and 1080p video recording and a 1.1-megapixel HD front-facing camera with Sony Exmor R sensor which is more than enough for taking selfies and making video calls.
The device houses 8GB internal storage capacity, which can be expanded up to 32GB expandable memory via microSD card.
Connectivity options include 3G HSPA+, WiFi 820.11 a/b/g/n (2.4 GHz/5 GHz), DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 with APT-X, GPS/ GLONASS and NFC as well.
The smartphone is powered by a 3000mAh battery with a STAMINA mode. The phone has 73.6% screen-to-body ratio with smaller bezels. The battery can handle up to 93 hours of music playback and 10 hours of video playback. In terms of talk time the e-commerce site mentions 14 hours of talktime for 2G network and 24 hours on 3G and the standby time would be 44 days in 2G and 43 days on 3G.
Talking about the competition, the handset will be coming up against Nokia's recently launched Lumia 1320 and Lumia 1520 which comes with a similar 6 inch HD display.
