Can’t decide if you want a phone or tablet, but know you love the stock Android experience? Sony might have you covered. The company has partnered with Google to launch a Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition smartphone featuring a 6.4 inch display.

This is basically a carrier unlocked version of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra, featuring software that’s pretty much the same as what you’d get on a Google Nexus phone or tablet — but Sony distributes the software updates to users, not Google.

Since the Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition is sold without a wireless contract, it ain’t cheap: It has a list price of $649, making it the same price as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition and a bit more than the HTC One.

Sony Z Ultra Google Play Edition

Sony’s phone features a 6.4 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel display with 342 pixels per inch. It’s powered by a 2.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor, has 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a microSDXC card slot.

The phone has an 8MP rear camera and 2MP front-facing camera, a 3000mAh battery, Bluetooth, NFC, and 802.11ac WiFi. It supports HSPA+ and LTE networks and should work with AT&T and T-Mobile networks in the US.
