The Sony Xperia Z Ultra, or ZU, or Togari, stars in a new set of leaked images that reveal more about the upcoming phablet.
While Sony has yet to make it official, various leaks and rumors painted a pretty clear picture of what to expect from the Xperia Z Ultra, at least in terms of hardware. The new batch of leaked images now reveals the launcher as well.
The leaked pictures come from senior XDA-Developers forum member Trekest, who claimed a "good friend" go a hold of them. According to the images, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra will pack the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 (MSM8974) processor clocked at 2.15GHz, coupled with Adreno 330 graphics. The software, meanwhile, seems to be Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, build number 14.1.B.1.125.
"The OS on it is clever, it recognizes known benchmark apps and forces you to uninstall them, otherwise it locks up until you do," notes Trekest, referring to the lack of benchmarks for the device. "He [the friend] did manage to run Quadrant Advanced, but the results weren't that great. The software is probably still in its early stages."
What's more intriguing, however, is the display on this unit. While previous whispers pointed toward a 6.44-inch display, the new screenshots show a 6.21-inch screen with a resolution of 1824 x 1080 pixels.
In terms of internal storage, the prototype seems to have 16GB on board, only 8.88GB of which should be usable. Micro SD is not mentioned, but should be present. The phablet will reportedly have 2GB of RAM and integrate 22 sensors.
The second batch of leaked images, meanwhile, shows the launcher of the purported Sony Xperia Z Ultra. The pictures indicate the device will sport a large display, as rumored, with the dock housing no less than six icons.
Trekest further notes that his friend even showed him the device and it's "gigantic," so big that "you can forget about one-handed operation with this thing." The friend apparently refused to provide a picture of the device itself.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra should make its debut in Munich and Paris, with events scheduled for June 25 and July 4, respectively. Until it becomes official, take things with a grain of salt.
