After Hong Kong and Taiwan, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is going to be launched in India on July 31st.
Indian e-commerce website Saholic lists the Xperia Z Ultra as an upcoming handset and mentions that it will be available by the end of the month. The Xperia Z Ultra is going to be the first device in the country that comes with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 800 SoC. It has a 6.4-inch full-HD TRILUMINOS Display with the X-Reality engine in a shatterproof and scratch resistant housing.
It features a quad-core 2.2 GHz Krait 400 processor along with Adreno 330. Other hardware includes 2 GB RAM, 16 GB ROM, an 8 MP camera at the back along with a 2 MP front shooter. The device also features a 3,050 mAh battery and comes with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. This Xperia Z Ultra is dust-proof and water-resistant and is certified IP55 / IP58.
There are already a few 6-inch phablets in the Indian market today, like the Galaxy Mega 6.3 and Huawei’s Ascend Mate. While these two devices are targeting the mid-tier segment, it is clear that Sony’s offering will be aimed solely at the high-end market.
The Xperia Z Ultra is set to cost Rs. 45,000 ($760), which is slightly less than what it costs in Hong Kong ($800) and Taiwan ($900). With the imminent launch of this device, Sony has slashed prices of the Sony Xperia Z from Rs. 38,990($660) to Rs. 34,490($590) and the Xperia ZL from Rs. 33,990($575) to Rs. 29,490($500).
