Sony announced the eagerly anticipated Xperia Z Ultra earlier this week, as its first released in the increasingly popular phablet niche. The combination of stylish design and high-end specifications has meant that the handset has received positive early reviews.
In terms of specifications, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra certainly ticks all the boxes. Like the standard Xperia Z, the phone boasts official waterproof certifications, Android 4.2.2 Jellybean OS and super fast LTE connectivity. The device also sports an 8 megapixel camera with Sony’s Exmor RS sensor and high definition video capture, along with Qualcomm’s powerful new Snapdragon 800 chipset, clocked a 2.2 GHz. Perhaps its most noticeable feature is its screen, which measures up at a massive 6.4 inches and boasts a 1080p high definition resolution. The device is equipped with an ample 3000mAh battery capacity, and has a very thin profile of just 6.5mm.
Because the handset was only unveiled a couple of days ago, details regarding its availability in the UK has not yet been revealed. However, GSM Arena has recently reported that Three has announced that it will carry the device, and the first UK network to confirm this. While we’re still awaiting information from the network regarding which contracts the Xperia Z ultra will be available on, we expect contracts to be offered under the standard 18 or 24 month periods, and vary in price based on monthly allowances of data usage, text messages and calls. While the Xperia Z Ultra will also be available as a SIM free handset, we expect it to command are rather high price tag on account of its high-end features, so pay monthly contracts are certainly likely to prove the most popular choice.

The phablet niche is also set to see a number of other notable devices in the near future, like the HTC One Max and Samsung Galaxy Note 3, so the Xperia Z Ultra will certainly face stiff competition. However, thanks to its high-end specifications and stylish design, we are sure that the Xperia Z Ultra will be a successful handset.
