The Sony Z Ultra happens to be the most awesome device that the company launched in the smartphone segment till date. Launched in the fall of this year, the Z Ultra can be considered Sony’s answer to the segment leader, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. In what can be considered as another interesting development with the Sony phablet (as the device with larger display screens have come to be known as), the company has come up with the Google Play Store edition of the device. The inherent benefit of such an edition is that the device will offer a pure Android experience which won’t come with any carrier obligations.
Interested customers can now place orders for the Sony Z ultra at the company’s Play Store site where it has been priced $649. The mentioned time of delivery is 1 to 2 working days from order. This also makes the Z Ultra the first product from Sony that runs a pure form of the Android OS.
So far as hardware specs go, it is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad core processor clocking at 2.2 GHz. The device also comes with an Adreno 330 graphic processor to handle graphics files. It comes with 2 GB of RAM along with a storage capacity of 16 GB. The device has a display size of 6.4 inch and features Triluminous technology which uses OptiContrast and X-Reality tech. For connectivity it is LTE compliant.
For design the Ultra Z has the same metallic frame and look like that of the Xperia Z from Sony. The glass covering the front and back are tempered and gives it an overall minimalistic look. Compared to the Galaxy Note 2, the Ultra Z boasts of a sturdier build quality. Overall weight of the device is 212 grams in spite of the expansive dimensions while also being easy to hold in hand and operate.
Google Play Store has listed one other product the LG G Pad 8.3 Play Edition in their site this week. To take a better decision there is the Galaxy S4 and HTC also up for sale at the Google Plat site for comparing.
