Sony may be one of the few smartphone makers offering top-tier specs in a phone that’s small enough to operate with one hand, but the company isn’t giving up on phones with huge screens.

The new Sony Xperia T2 Ultra features a 6 inch display, a 13MP camera, and otherwise some pretty solid mid-range features.

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra

The phone has a 1280 x 720 pixel OLED display, a 1.4 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 3200mAh battery. While it has just 8GB of built-in storage, there is a microSD card slot which you can use for media and other files.

It does have a few goodies that used to be rare in lower-priced phones, including support for NFC and a splash-proof case. Sony is also introducing a “smart flip case” that protects the screen and also works as a stand. After all, with a 6 inch display, the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is almost tablet-sized, and you might want to use it to watch videos or make video calls.

The company says the screen bezel is just 2.5mm, which makes the phone a bit smaller than you might expect, given its large display.

Sony also has a dual SIM version f the phone which is cleverly called the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra dual.

Sony is also launching a new 4 inch phone called the Xperia E1 which features an 800 x 480 pixel display, a 1.2 GHz dual-core CPU, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of storage. It’s a budget phone with just a few unusual features such as a speaker which Sony says produces up to 100Db of audio and Sony’s Walkman controls including shake-to-shuffle and a long-press-to-launch Walkman button.

  1. I wish there are other player that can fight Samsung galaxy Notes specification with same/higher spec but much lower price.

    Samsung been enjoying very high profit like apple all these years without any competitor.
    Because there are no competition in their high end model.

  2. I can’t buy the idea why Sony has to create a smartphone this huge with a mid-range spec. They could have spent it for marketing of the Z1 successor.

  3. I would jump on this if it had at least bands for HSPA+ in the US and T-Mo LTE. . . don’t know why none of these cheap 6″ devices aren’t making their way to the US, oh. . . that’s right carriers like us to have small phones here.
