The Sony phone leaks keep coming, this time about the update for the last Xperia Z Ultra. Now more details have emerged about the upcoming Xperia Z4 Ultra phablet. Is it worth the curiosity?
Yet another phablet
If you're unfamiliar with the Xperia Ultra line, then just think of it as being in the same class as the Samsung Galaxy Note and Huawei Ascend. If the rumours are true, the new Z4 Ultra will boast a huge 6.44-inch screen.
But as for the specs, the device may be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 SoC, which is an upgrade from its predecessor the Z Ultra. But then again, the previous Z Ultra was device that was a lightly-specced phone strapped onto a big screen. In short, the Z4 Ultra will share the same CPU as the upcoming Sony flagship, meaning that the Z4 Ultra will be on par with the new Xperia Z4 and future models.
This is due to the industry claim that Sony will not be concentrating on entry-level devices in its lineup and will concentrate on where the money is: that means going upmarket to the middle and highend segments. This could be a bold move by Sony as they beef up all their devices, but that could also possibly mean that the phones may cost more across the board.
