Sony Xperia Z Ultra on sale and bigger than Samsung Galaxy Mega

Samsung’s  Galaxy Mega is to officially lose its crown as the world’s biggest smartphone now that the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is on sale.

Sony has launched its mega model in India with a price tag of 46,990 rupees – approximately £500 – and its 6.4 inch screen is just a touch bigger than Samsung’s 6.3 inch display.

I am currently reviewing the Galaxy Mega – and it really is a huge phone – so I am interested to find out how the even bigger handset performs.

I really loved the water and dust proof Xperia Z and its bigger brother comes packing:

  • a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 16GB of internal storage (expandable to 64 GB with Micro SD support.)
  • Screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 and
  • an 8 Megapixel primary camera backed up by a 2 MP front camera.

The device, which is made from aluminum is just 6.5mm thick and weighs 212 grams.

Sony says it has made a smartphone to “take you beyond your wildest dreams” and while this does sound like typical marketing hype, I can also say this is one phone I would love to get my hands on.
