Introducing the Sony Xperia Z Ultra

There are a lot of reasons it's called Ultra. As one of the first smartphones with a blazing fast Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 mobile processor, and boasting several cutting-edge features Sony's newest offering, the Xperia Z Ultra, is fast becoming a must-have large-screen smartphone.

1. Ultra slim

The Xperia Z Ultra comes in at just around .25 inches and 7.5 ounces making it perfect for someone who wants a larger profile phone that's still thin and light enough to take with you. Its display is 6.4 inches of beauty, with a­ front and back made of glass seamlessly held together by an innovative metal frame that wraps around this impossibly thin smartphone.

2. Ultra sharp

Not only is the Xperia Z Ultra really good looking, it makes looking at things really good. It's the first smartphone to bring TRILUMINOS™ display to mobile for more rich, natural colors and its full HD display has been optimized so you see and experience at least 60% more than most smartphones.

3. Ultra waterproof

The Xperia Z Ultra is actually designed so that you can film underwater in full HD, no Ziploc bag required. That's right: A smartphone. Underwater. On purpose.

4. Ultra useful

That's right, that yellow No.2 no longer requires paper. You can write notes or sketch doodles on the super responsive Xperia Z Ultra screen using an ordinary pencil, even from a locked screen or during calls. No more lost ideas. Jot them down as quickly as you get them and then take them with you anywhere.

5. Ultra fast

As one of the first phones available in the US equipped with the power of the Snapdragon 800 processor, this smartphone is blazing fast. As in, one of the fastest mobile setups available to date. And the cherry on top? The superior intelligence of the Snapdragon 800 processor means all that speed is designed to come with minimal impact to better battery life. So if you want to go fast—faster movie streaming, faster apps, faster HD and 3D gaming—this could be the very, very fast smartphone for you.

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra will be available globally starting this fall.
