New Xperia T2 Ultra Mega Phablet announced by Sony



It looks like Sony has taken the short window between CES in Las Vegas and MWC in Barcelona next month to make some announcements about a brand new lineup of devices planned for release this year.

The device to really catch my eye though was the new Xperia T2 Ultra, a device that looked to include all of the latest hardware inside of a Sony branded chassis with a 6 inch HD display.

The release of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra last year was a brave move for Sony to take, but I was absolutely amazed at the time – it was the first device to use the 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, and it had a massive 6.4 inch display.

That was the first time I personally decided to keep a better eye on Sony, and since then I have loved them for bringing in decent priced products that don’t trade-off hardware capabilities for better profit margins.

The new Xperia T2 Ultra is looking to be another device that belongs with other great buys like the Xperia Z Ultra and Z1 Compact, and it comes with mid range hardware to stand a chance at emerging smartphone regions and markets.

It will pack a 1.4GHz quad core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot for an extra 32GB if needed, and a 3,000mAh battery.

Despite being an entry level device, the Xperia T2 Ultra will have a 720P display, and a very decent 13 megapixel camera. No details have been given on pricing yet, or if it will ever make it to markets like North America or Europe.

Sony also announced a very cheap device which has been dubbed the Xperia E1 – it comes with 512MB of RAM, and 4GB internal storage, as well as a 1.2GHz dual core processor. I expect this device could probably be picked up for pennies, no matter what regions it is sold in.
