Sony Xperia Z Ultra – 6.44 inch phone – full specs

Sony announced the Xperia Z Ultra a 6.44 inch smartphone with monster specs to go with its size.

– Battery: 3,000mAh embedded

– Waterproofing and dust resistance: IP55/IP58-rated

Sony state this is the world’s slimmest full HD smartphone, the world’s largest full HD smartphone display, the world’s sharpest large-screen smartphone display, and the world’s fastest smartphone processor.

Even more bizarre is the Xperia Z Ultra can be used with any pencil and selected stylus or pen (capacitive stylus or metal pen with tip diameter over 1mm). That’s right. You can use a pencil on the screen.

My initial thoughts are huge device, top specs, waterproof, and no need for a special pen like the Samsung Galaxy Note range. I do wonder though if 3,000 mah battery is big enough to power this device for a whole day.

So would you buy this as your only device?

  1. And the screen tech will migrate to the smaller devices like the Xperia Z so I will probably look to buy when this happens. I like the idea of pencil/pen input. Very compelling.
