Sony has expanded its Xperia smartphone series and launched the smartphone the Xperia T2 Ultra phablet. The Japanese handset maker has launched this device in two variants: single SIM and dual-SIM, namely the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra.
Debuting with the Xperia E1, the T2 Ultra is an awesome phone. Sporting a 6-inch 720p display with a 1,280×720-pixel resolution, the T2 Ultra should appeal to video addicts who need a portable media player which extends just like a smartphone.
Aside from the large screen, the T2 Ultra packs a 1.4GHz quad-core Snapdragon 400 processor. While it’s not the high-end Snapdragon 800, having four cores will help in the performance side of things. Large 6-inch display also means a larger embedded 3,000mAh battery. We’re guessing this should allow the T2 Ultra to last at least a day. Other key features include a 13-megapixel camera and Sony has loaded a bundle of camera apps too. Unlike the 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra, the T2 Ultra features a LED flash. The handset also is available in a dual-SIM variant which lacks LTE. The handset also includes LTE, which signifies very fast speeds when for surfing the Web and browsing your social networks.
The handset provides you with only 8GB of storage, which suggests you should have a microSD card for more memory space. Fortunately, the handset is involved with a microSD card slot.
Set for a launch in the first quarter, the T2 Ultra will have the advantage of obtaining a large range of content available out of the box through its Sony Entertainment Network service. This will help the handset stand out against similarly specced competitors. I expect the T2 Ultra to do well, particularly with consumers who like watching videos while travelling.
