VR-Zone’s Chinese website had the privilege to wield the newly announced Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet. Here’s a quick run through the hardware and the software (in Chinese).

Sony Xperia Z Ultra Hardware (2)

Sony really pulled it off here. The company announced a 6.44-inch gigantic device (it’s a phone) powered by the fastest Snapdragon 800 SoC, with a brilliant Triluminos color 1080p display, insanely slim 6.5mm thickness and a refined omnibalance design that we have already seen on the Xperia Z and Z Tablet.

The folks over at the VR-Zone Chinese were fortunate enough to get to play with one of these babies (big babies) at the Sony Media Event held at Shanghai earlier today.

Sony Xperia Z Ultra Price:

It has been reported that the Xperia Z Ultra phablet will go on sale in Q3 2013 for a (very) high price tag of €719. Quite steep if you ask me, but then again you’re getting top-notch hardware and so-so software (Sony still has a long way to catch up in that department).
