There have been a few reports about the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra phablet device hitting some US Carriers, or at least T-mobile, which we actually heard about back in March. The information at the time only pointed to a T-Mobile launch of the device sometime later this year, and according to this recent post on Xperia Blog it looks like “later this year” is going to be on July 23rd. That’s now less than a month away seeing as how July 1st is already tomorrow, so T-mobile subscribers looking to get their hands on a new Sony device with a big screen may have their opportunity near the end of this month. Something like this is cool to see if the release date pans out to be true, but also comes off as a little bit frustrating to those that have been eagerly waiting for Sony to launch the Xperia Z2 here in the states.
The information actually comes from Tmo News, who covers pretty much everything there is to know about T-Mobile and all the happenings coming to and from the U.S. fourth largest wireless carrier. There isn’t much of a waiting period here before we find out the truth when it comes to the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra but the obvious question now that we have a tentative launch date, is how much will T-Mobile be selling the Xperia T2 Ultra for when and if it launches on the network?
That’s a question that we should hopefully learn just a few weeks from now if we get an official word from T-Mobile themselves, and just in case you may have missed what kind of specs this phone will be running, we’ll go over the main stuff here. The Xperia T Ultra is said to be sporting a fairly large 6-inch IPS display, but the screen quality on that size display only comes in at an underwhelming 720p resolution. Not too shabby though is the rear facing camera, supposedly being a 13MP which isn’t bad but definitely not up to par with other more high end Xperia phones like the Xperia Z1 and Z2. The battery comes in at 3,000mAh so the phone should be able to last you all day and then some, and when it comes to the CPU and GPU we should be looking at a quad-core CPU from Qualcomm, more specifically the MSM8928 clocked at 1.4GHz, with an Adreno 305 chip for the graphics. Storage is listed at 8GB and there should be a microSD card slot to expand on that if needed. All in all it will probably be a decent device so long as it’s set a reasonable cost.
