Anything Samsung can do, Sony can do 0.1in better. Not to be outdone by the 6.3in Samsung Galaxy Mega, Sony is said to be prepping a 6.4in phablet, and it’ll supposedly be touching down as the Sony Xperia ZU.
We’re also hearing that the Sony Xperia Z Google Edition, rumoured earlier this week, is definitely happening.
The Sony Xperia ZU name is relayed by VR-zone, which also breaks the news that the phone will rock not a 13MP rear camera, but an 8MP snapper instead – that’s on account of component shortages.
Other Sony Xperia ZU specs are thought to include a 6.44in 1080p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, and water-resistance with IP58 certification. Nice.
June 25 is looking good for the Sony Xperia ZU launch date, with the Japanese manufacturer teasing: ‘You want more?’
In other Sony news, Android Central has received some sort of confirmation that the Sony Xperia Z Google Edition is indeed in the works. Sounds like it’ll be US-only, like the Google Editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One.
What’s the point? Er, good question. The Sony Xperia Z Google Edition will be much the same phone, ‘cept with plain old stock Android, and hence – presumably – speedy updates.
