Sony has also answered recent complains of existing screen displays by introducing Triluminos Display and X-Reality for mobile in the Z Ultra. With a wider color spectrum, the Z Ultra is able to produce better and more natural colors that are true to the image/ video. X-Reality for mobile is the upgraded version of the Mobile Bravia Engine 2, and renders images sharper, less noisy, more saturated etc. Here’s the official video to explain the two new technology in the Z Ultra:
Moreover, Sony has came up with a one-two punch by including the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. Clocking in at a blazing fast speed of 2.2Ghz with 2GB of RAM and a brand new Adreno 330 GPU, this device is SMOOTH and FLUID. We’ve got a demo set to play with for a week and this is the first time we can confidently say that the user experience on a Sony device is top notch! fonearena has done a good job by testing the Z Ultra with the various benchmarks for all you techies to compare.

The Xperia Z Ultra packs the standard NFC connectivity, Bluetooth 4.0 and comes in two variants, 3G model (which is already launched in the market) and a LTE 4G model (which is due to release some time in September).
Last but not least, a high end Sony device nowadays will always come encased in a water resistant form. This time, Sony has up-ed one level in the IP ratings, from IP57 to IP58. The Xperia Z Ultra is waterproof, up to a depth of 1.5m and for a duration of 30mins.

Sony is coming back strong in 2013. They’ve just bolstered their line-up with two new additional Xperia smartphones, they Xperia SP and Xperia L.
The Xperia SP is Sony’s new addition in the mid-range smartphone segment and spots the iconic transparent strip, similar to the ones on the Xperia S/P/U. On top of this, it’s built upon an aluminum frame (weighing in at 155g). So we’re expecting a premium feel from the device. Spotting a 4.6″ HD Reality Display (protected by corning gorilla glass) powered by the all new Mobile Bravia Engine 2, the Xperia SP seems to be the successor of the Xperia ion. The Xperia SP is also equipped with the latest Exmor RS sensor, shooting at 8MP resolutions capable of capturing full HD videos. This device has the standard NFC, LTE bands, Bluetooth 4.0, DLNA and is MHL ready. Powering all this is the latest S4 Pro processor clocking a dual core processor at 1.7Ghz, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard memory (expandable with a microSD). As for battery life, we’re expecting an adequate daily usage with the addition of Battery Stamina Mode. Interesting enough, the phone supports Sony’s “Glove mode” where you’re able to navigate the phone even when wearing a pair of gloves!
The Xperia L is Sony’s new addition in the entry level smartphone segment and spots the iconic arc back, similar to the ones on the Xperia arc S/V/J. The Xperia L’s focus would be on the all new Exmor RS sensor, an upgrade from its successor the Xperia J. It spots a dedicated camera button for easy access to the camera function, and allows for a quick snap from sleep mode in just over a second! The Xperia L spots a 4.3″ Reality Display on scratch resistant glass (weighing in at 137g). This device has the standard NFC, HSPA+, DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0 and is MHL ready. Powering all this is a dual core processor clocked at 1Ghz, with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of onboard memory (expandable with a microSD). As for battery life, we’re expecting an adequate daily usage with the addition of Battery Stamina Mode.
How do you find the new line-up from Sony? The design sure is unique as compared to most smartphones in the market right now.
Xperia Z is the first smartphone to be packed with a Exmor RS sensor capable of HDR video. With this new technology, low or strong lighting won’t post a problem to the quality of your images or videos anymore. Check out this video for a better description on how the camera sensor works!

“Experience the best of Sony in a table” – Sony’s tagline for its latest Xperia tablet series.
Sony has finally introduced official videos of the Xperia Tablet Z. Based on these videos, we weren’t far off from the specs we wrote of in our previous post. The Xperia Tablet Z spots the same OmniBalance Design and is thinner than the Xperia Z. It has a 10″ HD Reality Display, powered by the Mobile Bravia Engine 2 on an OptiContrast Panel. It spots the NFC one-touch feature that we’re familiar on the Xperia Z and spots a 8MP Exmor R HD rear sensor and 2MP Exmor R HD front cam. WALKMAN is also on the tablet and has the same ClearAudio+ technology for soul-shaking clarity, which can be experienced on the tablet’s S-Force Surround technology. The Tablet Z is powered by a S4 Pro processor, 1.5Ghz Quadcore with 2GB of RAM. All these features and more, in a water and dust resistance chasis (IP 55/57 rating), at a weight of 500g and only 6.9mm thick!
The Xperia Z has an app called the “Xperia Link”, and we’re very excited to try out the exact features of it when the Tablet Z reaches our hands. Also, it is mentioned in the video that the screen is made up of tampered glass, which leads us to wonder if the tablet uses the same material as the Xperia Z. Possibly dragontrail?
