Xperia Z Ultra (Togari) is a beast: 6.4-inch Triluminos display, Snapdragon 800, 6.5mm thin

by XB on 7th June 2013

in Rumours, Xperia Z Ultra

Sony Make BelieveSony Mobile will shortly be announcing the Xperia Z Ultra, which up until now has been referred to by its codename ‘Togari’. A trusted source has spilt some key details about the handset, so here’s what we know. Firstly, the Xperia Z Ultra will come with a 6.4-inch 1080p “Triluminos with X-Reality for Mobile” display.

Excitingly, it looks like the Xperia Z Ultra will mark a change of display type for the company’s smartphones and we hope it addresses some of the perceived shortcomings of the Xperia Z display, criticised by some for its poor viewing angles and contrast levels.

The Xperia Z Ultra will also come with a new type of touch screen sensor that will allow input from either a stylus, pencil or pretty much anything. In this respect, we expect that Sony is continuing its relationship with Neonode (a Swedish company). Sony has integrated Neonode’s MultiSensing touch technology in its e-Readers for a number of years now.

Neonode’s MultiSensing technology is based on optical infrared light, the company says that it “senses any object and identifies its size, the pressure, depth, speed and even the proximity to any surface”. We know that the company signed agreements with some manufacturers earlier this year to incorporate this technology into their Android smartphones and tablets. Therefore, the idea that this tech would be heading to the Xperia Z Ultra isn’t as far-fetched as it sounds.

The handset will have plenty of power under the hood, armed with the Snapdragon 800 chipset including a 2.2GHz quad-core processor and Adreno 330 graphics. We haven’t seen any devices launch with this chipset, so it does make us question, when exactly the Xperia Z Ultra will end up hitting retail.

Camera duties will be taken care of by a 8MP Exmor RS camera sensor and a 2.2MP front-facing camera. Much like the Xperia Z, the Xperia Z Ultra will be water resistant with an IP55/IP58 rating (note this is similar to the Xperia ZR and offers greater water resistance than the Xperia Z which has an IP55/IP57 rating).

The Xperia Z Ultra will launch with Android 4.2. It will come with a super-slim profile much like the Xperia Z and Xperia Tablet Z and have dimensions of 179.2 x 92 x 6.5mm. The Xperia Z Ultra will weigh 212g.

The Xperia Z Ultra is looking like a premium device in every sense. We can’t wait to hear more details.

    Smartphone of the gods. LOL

  • Ambroos

    Whoa, those are some hefty specs! Not sure if I’d like 6.4″ though, that is huge.

  • depend

    Too big, wainting for Hogari

  • Black Ops

    im looking forward about the Honami which be called i1….hope they release them both at the same time :D

  • Just reading Neonode’s rumors on Esato, watched Neonode’s sample on MWC 2012 via Engadget…

    And now, the future starts here with Sony.

  • Yong Jie Tan


  • galafix

    I hope this really marks the turning point for Sony’s comeback, a sharp turning point.

  • Jesús López Sotelo

    haha Xperia ZU, for short.

  • Karl

    Only sports an 8 MP camera?

  • Karl

    I thought it will use 16 MP camera?

  • Rie Chua

    wow, i have starting to be excited

  • It is for the Honami.

  • I think that Snapdragon 800 chip beast will power the ultra-sensitive Neonode optical touchscreen that is fast enough to track touch inputs.

    I wonder if I can also put my hands while I write using a stylus, Re: Sony’s newest e-ink pad.

  • aamwng

    Ambroos, you know stuf right! ;)

    Are these rumours correct, also anything on honomi?

  • kiikooo

    I love how Sony is using the Z letter for its high end phones now. I really hope this continues and the successor of the XZ keeps the Z in there.

  • putra

    OMG 9,2 cm ? That’s too big… o.o

  • Michael Hofmann

    I know, surely they’d just use the same sensor as the Xperia Z.

  • von

    But would it have phablet only features? Otherwise it would just be a big phone.

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Excitingly* ,xb. This should do ok among phablet-lovers *cough*

  • demon


  • Jhonbert Magana

    Sony doesn’t fail to make me excite.

  • Gitarooman

    HOLY *&(*^*&^ head exploded.

  • Only 8MP? :o

  • Silas Arentsen

    Source? Specs sound awesome though

  • Fei Long


  • goldenblls


  • nemo

    im more interested in honami, too huge a size doesnt quite suit me

  • Dakota

    …Only an 8MP camera?

  • :D

  • heman

    I hope they’ll put the batter bigger .:-)

  • Rizky Maulana


  • Rizky Maulana

    dafuk :v

  • This will be a great phone if all stated is true,specially the display shouldmust be better than Xperia Z for this to success.And wishes sony would release something like this with 4.8-5.0″ screen ;)

  • Rizky Maulana

    Xperia Z Ultra or Ultimate ???

  • Dany


  • Aniket Koyande

    might be because its way too slim for a 13M sensor package

  • Yusuf

    Omg so getting this.

  • ShinOrochiX

    Thats the Togari with a cat on it. :- i

  • Alaa

    This in pictures is the Sony Xperia Tablet Z, Not Togari

  • thorsten

    The neonode touch layer requires boarders around the screen for the infra-red sensors (see video). Therefore it is VERY unlikely that Xperia Z ultra will use that

  • AMG38

    Sony, take my XZ, take my XS and then take my Money. After that, give me that AWESOME Togari.
    Eh wait, only one thing. Please do not promise to release 4.3 very soon after release.

  • DoucheyTuesday

    Omg i created a monster -sry everyone *~*

  • Vicky

    Wow! so big, Honami only for me.

  • DoucheyTuesday

    So get it!

  • DoucheyTuesday

    I’d rather see a picture of d00ml0rd on a Hobabi, just sayin’

  • Faisal Armand

    The front camera is only 8MP? Oh God, I hope SONY doesn’t ruin the imaging system. Or it’ll be a potential deal breaker

    The 8MP camera in Xperia SP & L are both quite of a disappointment.

    Other than that, this device is a beast.

  • Rizky Maulana

    or 7.0″ xperia tablet T from sony ? :v

  • Ambroos

    If it’s on XperiaBlog it’s generally correct.

  • Babylonbwoy

    Damn! Stop this now Sony! I can’t buy a flagship every three months… I wanted to get the Tablet Z but now I’m confused…

  • ManRaj

    Front camera ONLY 8MP??? are your serious ? lmao!

  • ManRaj


  • Babylonbwoy

    They don’t know what it means ;)

  • Babylonbwoy

    because it’s funny, it means “mon chérie”/”honey” in arabic!

  • Babylonbwoy

    Sounds logic, so they should make it less slim and put at least 13MP one instead. Flagship with 8MP sounds weird.

  • Thiago Guerreiro Bastos

    6.4-inch is too big for a smartphone. Must be awful to use it

  • Arokhantos

    Ultra vision off xperia z yet 8 mp sensor ?
    Why not 13mp ;o

  • Uqix

    that’s due to shortage of sony’s 13MP camera module.

  • Arokhantos

    still to small give 7 inch smartphone with no bezel and 13+ mp rear camera.

  • gabriel

    only bad thing is that the screen does not support the scratches if you put corning gorrilla glass, would be perfect.

  • Kim Salinas

    it should have a good battery capacity also like the LG L Series up to three days of usage before charging again so that the Ultra Z be much better gaming with the use of dualshock 3.

  • Graeme Ramsay

    To big for me just be pain in the bum. To use with 2 hands looks like the tablets sony Xperia z. Perfect size for me

  • Uqix

    nope. Sony uses dragon trail glass on their devices which its quality is on par with corning’s gorilla glass.

  • XYZ

    Not enough stock.

  • gabriel


  • Jerry Berglund

    Its fun that Neonode at last found its niche. They were almost vanishing, but they had something with their gesture and touch solution. Glad they survived. :-) Its strange though that Neonode never sued Apple for steeling their solution?

  • TjaldidTjaldid

    I hope it’s not the same one when you stretch the Z design to that size it makes it look bad, this thing needs rounded corners

  • Jesús López Sotelo

    Is that the new Xperia Cat? Does it have NFC? :D

  • Does Neonode’s MultiSensing technology allow us to use the screen underwater?

  • Aznev

    If these specs were in a 4.5″ screen phone with Android 4.2, Sony could dominate the world if it wanted.

  • Uqix

    but it’s too small for the tablet Z.

  • Lureham

    Up for your last few words :)

  • Gitarooman

    specs in in line with earlier rurmors, just a week a go, S800. Only thing new is the thickness and triluminos display which wasn’t present in the test model. Didn’t have it previously; and maybe the 8MP camera. Most would have thought it would be 13 MP min, now its 8MP due to thickness. Guessing the test model is thicker.

  • Kris

    You need to know that HTC One and Galaxy S3 both have a 8MP Backcamera and take better pictures (especially at night), while Sony doesn’t deliver equally good pics with it’s 12MP in Xperia S and 13 MP in Xperia Z. Megapixel is not important, more important is how good the light sensitivity of the imagesensors is… otherwise you get these blurry and noisy pictures at night.

    E o Honami ? cadê ?

  • “Sony Mobile will shortly be announcing”…..Define “shortly”.

  • From the looks of it now, it’s goong to do good in the market. But will Sony provide enough software that can compete with the galaxy note, that’s the question.

  • reventon

    6.5mm??!?!??! thinner than the Z?
    Then why is the Honami 12mm thick????

  • janiel03

    because of the 16 or 20 megapixel camera sensor.

    Wish list for honami:

    2 stage shutter
    Waterproof not necessary
    Cybershot camera (16-20mp)
    Sony’s highest ppi
    5 inch screen
    Xenon flash if possible
    Thin with glass and aluminum/carbon fibre shell
    And then release this beast quickly with AT&T LTE version and u can have my monies. For reals.

    What a shame! It’s not even excited. Sony used to be a leader, innovator, trend-setter but now are just follower.

  • rt

    they’re releasing so many phones so you can find one that suits your preferences. why complain if it’s not for you. it isn’t specifically made for you. there are others who appreciate this size. it’s near the size of a 7″ tablet so there should be some market for that.

  • earthots

    with that thinness i think that hope’s hopeless now. they may even use a 2300 mah for tha.

  • Nabil

    Use it as a tablet and it’s amazing. Perfect size.

    Sony has integrated Neonode’s MultiSensing touch technology on this WATERPROOF PHABLET. Neonode’s MultiSensing technology is based on optical infrared light, the company says that it “senses any object and identifies its size, the pressure, depth, speed and even the proximity to any surface”. Does this mean the SCREEN WILL STILL BE RESPONSIVE UNDERWATER unlike the waterproof smartphones out there? I assume it will work.

    I want a 7.5-8 inch screen tablet from Sony, similar to the Apple mini with a think frame so the device housing can be reduced/smaller. This will be perfect since the Xperia Z tablet looks gorgeous but I think 10″ would be inconvenient to carry around on campus.

    Also I’ve heard in one of those interviews at CES earlier this year that there is a legal limit to how thin a smartphone can be in the USA. They also noted that tablets didn’t have that problem because they’re not constantly pressed to the side of your head.

    However, I think 6.5mm may have been that minimum.
