SONY is about launching a device, the Sony Xperia X Ultra and it is the definition of BIG! But before I delve right into giving details about the upcoming device, let’s look at a very brief evolution of screen sizes on smartphones as it relates to SONY’s upcoming device.
Who remembers the times when 5-inch smartphones were in vogue? Then, if you own one, you were like a king right? Years later came the new king – 5.5-inch smartphones. Devices with such screen size gained wide acceptance and popularity.
Even as a few people complained about 5.5-inch devices being to big for their hands and pockets, their popularity never declined. Afterwards, just when we thought we had seen it all, the 6.0-inch “phablets” came on board. Now, SONY is about starting something new with the Xperia X Ultra.
The Sony Xperia X Ultra will feature an impressively wide display screen size of 6.45-inch. Care to know another impressive characteristic feature of the Xperia X Ultra? Its “aspect ratio”. The aspect ratio of the Sony Xperia X Ultra is 21:9.
This device is “longer” and bigger than high-end devices like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the LG G6 which both have aspect ratio of 18:9.
Other features of the Sony Xperia X Ultra
Asides the ultra wide display and aspect ratio, the Sony Xperia X Ultra, according to reports may be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC processor alongside 4GB of RAM. For storage of multimedia files and other documents, an in-built 64GB ROM will be on board.
As for the cameras, a 19MP sensor is present on the rear and a 13MP sensor is upfront for selfies and video calls.
Lastly, the Sony Xperia X Ultra has 4G LTE support. The 3,050mAh battery also lasts long and charges quickly as a result of the QuickCharge technology on the device. Did I mention that the Sony Xperia X Ultra will be water and dust resistant? I guess the topic did that already.
You can’t wait for the Sony Xperia X Ultra to launch? We definitely are on the same page. Let’s see how big it can get.
