The latest rumors from China say Sony is gearing up to release a new handset called “Xperia M Ultra.”
Speaking of specifications, the Sony Xperia M Ultra will reportedly come with a whopping 6-inch IPS display, complemented by full HD screen resolution. Under the hood, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 652 chipset is believed to power this gigantic device, according to Phone Radar, which cited a Weibo update.
The Xperia M Ultra is rumored to come with 32GB of native storage space, backed by 3GB of RAM. A solid 4,280-mAh battery unit will reportedly help keep the lights on.
When it comes to camera configuration, this handset will sport a 23-MP rear-facing sensor under a dual-camera setup. In addition, a 16-MP snapper will be mounted at the front for selfies and video chats.
Apart from the standard connectivity options, this device will also feature the now-famous USB Type-C port. For authentication, the same Weibo user noted that a fingerprint sensor will be embedded on the device.
The Xperia M Ultra is not the only Sony device waiting to be unveiled. Rumor has it that Sony Xperia C6 Ultra is also under development.
Sony launched three handsets at Mobile World Congress 2016 — Xperia X, Xperia X Performance and Xperia XA. However, none of these devices have hit store shelves yet. The Japanese tech giant is also working on a new device as a successor to the Xperia Z5 Premium, dubbed “Sony Xperia X Premium.”
While the Xperia Z5 Premium flaunted a 4K resolution display, the Xperia X Premium will reportedly come with an HDR display, which is common in TVs but new in the mobile world. Technically, the HDR display is capable of showing 1.07 billion colors. In comparison, other top-end smartphones released recently can support a maximum of only 16.8 million colors.
Sony has not confirmed the existence of the rumored devices so far.
