Sony announced its upscaled Xperia Z variant, the Xperia Z Ultra, back in June, 2013, and in July the handset was available to purchase from several independent electronics retailers in the United Kingdom with a rather hefty price tag of £699. However, if you didn’t have the opportunity or wherewithal to pick one up at the time of release, it may be of interest for you to know that Very is currently offering the handset for the discounted price of £579 — that’s a pretty impressive £120 off the usual retail price.
The Z Ultra is a very impressive Android-powered smartphone, which sports a 6.4-inch capacitive touchscreen with a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels powered by Sony’s X-Reality engine, a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset powered by four 2.2GHz Krait 400 CPU’s, 2GB of DDR3 RAM, an Adreno 330 GPU, 16GB of internal storage (expandable up to 64GB via microSD), an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter and a beefy 3,050 mAh non-removable Li-Ion battery.
In addition, the phablet ships running Android 4.2.2, but is upgradable to the latest build of 4.3 Jelly Bean upon receipt. The first time you power up the device, insert the SIM and connect to a Wi-Fi network, you will be prompted to download and install the upgrade. Furthermore, Sony announced in a press release that the Ultra is expected to receive an update up to the latest version of the Android operating system, Android 4.4.2 KitKat, in the not-too-distant future.
