The Sony Xperia Z Ultra has a very impressive spec list including the Snapdragon 800 chipset and 6.44-inch Full HD Triluminos display. However, if there’s a couple of extra features we would have liked it would have been a better camera (with LED flash) and infra-red sensor. We have found the IR Remote feature to be very useful in devices such as the Xperia Tablet Z and Xperia ZL.
Judging by the following picture, which Sony Mobile published on its Facebook page, it looks like Sony was considering the inclusion of an infra-red sensor in the Xperia Z Ultra. It shows the white handset with the IR sensor next to the camera lens. Obviously, this feature didn’t make it to the final spec sheet, which is a shame. Let’s hope it does make it to the upcoming Honami flagship.
