Taking a somewhat backwards step from the fad of the ‘phablet’ Sony will soon be launching a WiFi-only tablet version of its super-sized smartphone, the Xperia Z Ultra.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra hit shelves mid-2013 as an Android 4.2 Jelly Bean smartphone with a generous 6.4” touchscreen boasting 1920 x 1080p Full HD display. Following a leak earlier this week Sony has taken the news official, and doing away with the phone bit the new tablet when launched (date unconfirmed) will feature most of the same size and specs as the preceding mobile model so we can expect 2.2GHz quad-core processing with Qualcomm Snapdragon and 2GB of RAM comes included with MicroSD support for up to 64GB.
The Xperia Z Ultra tablet will feature 8MP main camera with 2MP front facing for video calls (and those much necessary ‘selfies’) and 3050 mah battery life is on offer for reasonable periods of use.
Sony’s tablet will arrive initially in the company’s native Japan costing around £300 when translated.
