Sony Xperia Z Ultra was coined back on its launch mid last year as the world’s slimmest full HD smartphone with the largest display. It has an impressive 6.4-inch Triluminous display with 1080 x 1920 resolution, featuring an ultra slim design at 6.5mm thin.
But it was a smartphone, or a phablet then on launch. This time, Sony decided to omit the phone function and decidedly release an additional Wi-Fi only version of the Xperia Z Ultra instead. Other specs are left untouched, with a 2.2GHz Snapdragon 800 quad-core chipset, 2GB RAM, and 32GB storage memory, running on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
It’ll have Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n/ac, of course and Bluetooth 4.0. It still got the two cameras with 8MP at the back, and 2MP on the front. Finally, it’s a full-fledged tablet, but smaller than common slates measuring 7-inch and going even beyond the 10.1-inch range.
Sony Xperia Z Ultra Wi-Fi version is recently announced at Japan to be launched by January 24th priced at 52,000 yen, which is about $500 USD. Global roll-out, pricing and availability are yet to be announced if Sony so decides to bring it to other regions as well.
