Sony Mobile Japan has announced the Xperia UL (SOL22) for Japanese operator AU by KDDI. The handset shares much of its looks with the Xperia A (SO-04E) on NTT DoCoMo. However, the Xperia UL sports a larger display, coming in at 5-inches with 1080p resolution versus the 4.6-inch 720p display of the Xperia A.
Apart from the display, much of the rest of the specs are identical including IP55/IP58 dust and water resistance, a 1.5GHz quad-core chipset (APQ8064), 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage (the Xperia A has 32GB), a 2300mAh battery, 13.1MP Exmor RS sensor with dedicated camera button and VGA front-facing camera.
Other features include Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, LTE, micro SD support, One-Seg and infrared sensor. In terms of dimensions, the Xperia UL measures 135 x 71 x 10.5 mm and weighs 145g. The Sony Xperia UL will be available in three colours (black, white and pink) and launches on Saturday 25 May via AU by KDDI.
