Sony could be unveiling the Xperia Z Ultra phablet on the fourth of July, suggesting the Xperia Z
follow-up will be a direct competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note II
. Invitations to an event being held in Paris, France, hints at the phone's design by showing the side with what appears to be a hole for stylus storage, along with pointing out the hand-written part of the invite using a stylus.
The invitations, received by french blogs such as Frandroid
, can be translated as saying "Sony Mobile reserves a big surprise for you" and to "put a note in your agenda," something that Xperia Blog
suggests is a hint towards its rumored 6.4-inch display. It is expected to have a 1080p screen using "Triluminos with X-Reality for Mobile," use a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor running at 2.2GHz with 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and an 8-megapixel rear camera.
The Xperia Z Ultra, if it is indeed what will be revealed at the event, will be the latest in a quick succession of smartphones from the company. In recent months, Sony has made the waterproof Xperia ZR
, the entry-level Xperia M
, and Xperia ZL
official, along with the Xperia Tablet Z
