Sony’s New Xperia T2 Ultra Is A Budget Phone With A Big Display


Sony today announced its new Xperia T2 Ultra, an affordable smartphone with a massive 6-inch display that’s looking to take on devices like the Samsung Galaxy Mega and the Huawei Ascend Mate. The device will be aimed at emerging markets like China, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia Pacific.

The Xperia T2 Ultra is available in two versions; both are mostly the same, but one — the Xperia T2 Ultra Dual — boasts a dual-SIM card slot for those who need to manage two numbers simultaneously. Here’s what you’ll find under the hood:

  • 6-inch 720p display
  • 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor
  • 1GB of RAM
  • 8GB of internal storage
  • microSD card slot
  • 13-megapixel rear-facing camera
  • 1.1-megapixel front-facing camera
  • 3,000mAh battery
  • 4G LTE connectivity
  • NFC

The Xperia T2 Ultra weighs 173 grams, and measures just 7.6mm thick. Unlike its siblings more expensive, however, its design is not waterproof.

Sony says the Xperia T2 Ultra is ideal for entertainment on the go and offers excellent value for money.

“Xperia T2 Ultra will lead the category through its combination of advanced display and camera technologies, it will bring large-screen entertainment in an amazingly portable form factor and it will do it all whilst providing incredible value for money,” said Calum MacDougall, director of Xperia marketing at Sony Mobile.

“Its large HD display will deliver big screen entertainment on the go whilst the efficiency of the design will allow it to remain the worlds most portable large screen smartphone.”

Sony hasn’t confirmed the Xperia T2 Ultra’s price tag yet, or exactly when it will be available.
