Sony has quietly added a new phablet to its Xperia portfolio. A 6-inch mid-range device, the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is dubbed as an Android smartphone created for entertainment on-the-go and headed to China, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia Pacific.
As a phablet, the best aspect of the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is naturally its 6-inch Triluminous screen. Bright and boasting a wide viewing angle, this 720p display produces the same vivid colors that consumers enjoy with Sony Bravia TVs. Everything on screen should render at a fairly smooth frame rate on account of a Snapdragon 400 processor running under the hood, along with 1GB of RAM and Adreno 305 GPU.

Yet another thing that’s worthy of mentioning is the set of features within the camera app. Sporting an Exmore RS sensor, the 13-megapixel rear facing camera offers several modes and photo-enhancing elements, including burst shots, HDR mode, 1080p video recording, object tracking, image stabilizer, and more.
Connectivity-wise, the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is quite geared up. The LTE support provides a great boost in surfing speeds when mobile, whereas the dual-band Wi-Fi antenna ensures a stable wireless connection at home. There’s also NFC support to allow Sony’s several accessories to connect with the device. All of them, as Sony claims, work seamlessly and connect with just one touch.
A dual-SIM variant has also been announced. Aptly named Sony Xperia T2 Ultra dual, it employs the same specs, save for being able to utilize a secondary SIM card. For a phablet with high-end specs, see the Sony Xperia Z Ultra.
Though we know the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra will have a worldwide launch, we don’t know exactly when it’ll actually go on sale and for how much. Available flavors are black, white, and purple.
