Sony Mobile Communications adds to its quiver a smartphone of ultra-high standard, Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The Ultra has an oversized 6,4 inch screen with Sony's best in display technology, 2,2GHz quad-core processor, 4G with HD Voice support, locked in the thinnest 6,5 chassis with 3.000mAh battery, the consumption of which is constantly controlled by Japanese gossip technology. Sony in the Netherlands has revealed that the Xperia Z Ultra will be available in September at a price around 719 euros.
Sony Mobile Communications describes the Xpera Z Ultra "the next revolution in the category of premium large-screen Android smartphones". The new Xperia ™ Z Ultra is waterproof (with closed doors, at a depth of 1,5m by 30 ′), extremely thin (6,5 mm) and light (212 grams). It is the first smartphone to have a built-in Full HD TRILUMINOS οθόνη screen with the latest Sony X-Reality ™ for mobile.
The Xperia Z Ultra is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with four 2,2 GHz cores, supporting 4G / LTE and HD voice.
- HD Voice means calls with impressive clear, crystal clear sound and no "noise" from the environment, even when the conversation is low. Cosmote has announced the provision of high-definition voice services exclusively for 11 subscribers in June 2013. One of the prerequisites for High Definition calls is that the two interlocutors use HD Voice-enabled devices.
The Xperia Z Ultra features a full-HD 6,4 touchscreen with Sony's TRILUMINOS Display for mobile. Utilizing its know-how from BRAVIA TVs, Sony Mobile expands the range of rich natural colors and mobile phones with its signature.
In addition, it supports X-Reality ™ for mobile technology. This "intelligent" technology analyzes each image and reproduces the missing pixels. It analyzes elements according to the scene and adapts them based on the original pattern, contour and color composition. It also enhances the fine motifs and displays their detail with precision, as well as the bold contours.
The Full HD screen is optimized for at least 60% greater than most smartphones, that is, the available surface compared to smartphones with 5 screen or less.
With an excellent IP55 and IP58 rating, this smartphone is not only dust resistant but also waterproof. The user can also shoot underwater video in Full HD. The camera has "Exmor RS for mobile", HDR for photos and movies, as well as the Superior Auto setting that automatically activates HDR and noise reduction when needed, to capture amazing images even in harsh lighting conditions, the manufacturer claims .

Finally, Sony notes that the battery application STAMINA Mode improves the smartphone's standby time four times or more as it detects when the screen is not in use and automatically turns off the functions you do not need, while maintaining the notifications you want. Once you press the power button the screen and all functions resume again.
