Following the release of its Europe-bound Xperia E1 and E1 Dual, Sony today announced the Xperia T2 Ultra, a smartphone with a 6-inch display and a more global audience in mind. The 6-inch HD display unfortunately is just a 720p screen, but it does have the display tweaks common in Sony handsets, such as TRILUMINOS and Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2.
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra has a 1.4 GHz quad-core processor (Qualcomm Snapdragon) and 1GB of RAM. The phone has 8GB of internal storage and a microSD slot for an additional 32GB of expanded memory. The phone also includes a 3,000 mAh battery, LTE connectivity, and a dual SIM variant that lets users have two active SIMs rather than switch between the two.
A 1.1-megapixel front-facing camera with an Exmor R sensor takes self-portraits, and a 13-megapixel rear camera with Exmor RS sensor handles the rest. The rear camera has built-in software for improving self-portraits with digital make-up effects, create photo collages, defocus the background, and sweep panorama images.
Sony plans to release the Xperia T2 Ultra and Ultra Dual in China, the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific rim. Price and release dates are not yet available.
