While HTC and Samsung are working on their upgraded variants of the One M8 and Galaxy S5 handsets respectively, Sony also apparently looks pretty busy with its new variant of the Xperia Z2. The phone in question is the Xperia Z2 Ultra. If Sony's past record is to be referred, we have already seen the Xperia Z Ultra which is a larger variant of the original Xperia Z smartphones.
However, the existence of the new Xperia Z2 Ultra has not been confirmed by the company and so far, we've just started receiving the bytes out of the rumors. However, sometime last month, there were mild rumors that suggested Sony was working on the successor of the Xperia Z Ultra.
Moreover, some parts of these rumors also hinted at the new info on the device that claims that it is real and will hit the shelves with some seriously powerful hardware.
If a report from AndroidSaS is to be believed, Sony will use the same 6.44-inch touchscreen display on the Xperia Z2 Ultra as well which was first used in the predecessor. However, there are no details related to the display resolution and whether it's going to be full HD or Quad HD or even just HD, it remains to be a mystery.
It is rumored to come powered by a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm MSM8974AB Snapdragon 801 process, which is used in the Xperia Z2 smartphone. Additionally it will also be most probably using a 3GB RAM, which means that the phablet will be a powerful machine. Although it is said that the handset will run on Android 4.4.3 KitKat operating system, Sony might release it with a at least KitKat flavor.
Other specs include, 16GB of native memory, with a microSD card slot for memory expansion, 20.7-megapixel camera with LED flash and support for 4K video recording, a 2MP front camera and a 3400mAh battery is expected to power the handset.
However, all these specs are drawn from the rumors, so until the company officially talks about it, we can't tell you for sure what the device will actually be like. So it would rather be a great idea to wait for the company to make it official.
