[EXCLUSIVE] Sony Togari to be named Xperia ZU, to be announced on June 25th?
Our insiders passed along some spicy news related to the upcoming Sony Togari phablet, or should we say the Xperia ZU.
Sony Xperia ZU will be the company’s first phablet ever. Going by the internal code name of Togari, our sources today confirmed that the name Xperia ZU is final. Along with that, they had passed us some news which is both good and bad.
Let’s start with the bad news. Xperia ZU will pack an 8 MP camera from Sony. A 13 MP camera isn’t included due to shortage of said modules.
Now to the good news. Sony Xperia ZU will pack a 6.44-inch 1080p Triluminos color display. Sony’s new display related technology which has already been spotted on TVs and notebooks is making its way to the company’s debut phablet. Additionally, the Xperia ZU will come with the X-Reality Engine, an upgrade to the Mobile Bravia Engine 2 that most high-end Sony Smartphones come with. X-Reality Engine is a post processing engine that will enhance the color and contrast of your images and videos even better than the Bravia Engine does. Additionally, the Xperia ZU will come with IP58 certification and hence will be water-resistant (1m for up to 30 minutes).
Lastly, we got confirmed word that Togari will indeed come with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 800 SoC. The CPU will be clocked at a cool 2.3 GHz, the maximum clock speed as per Qualcomm’s specifications. Behold, for a beast will arrive in the market soon, perhaps as soon as 25th June itself (see image).
