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.
