Sony seems to be on a mission – to have as many phones available in its Xperia line-up as possible. According to rumours floating around, the company seems to be working on a new handset, dubbed the Xperia UL. Pictures of the handset have been leaked by Chinese website CNMO. These pictures are the first look at the smartphone that we’ve ever had.
According to rumours, the Xperia UL will sport a 5-inch display and is going to be powered b y a Snapdragon 600 processor by Qualcomm along with 2GB of RAM, thus making the UL quite a beast in terms of performance. It will also have 32GB of internal memory. All of this is kept alive by a 2300 mAh battery.
Earlier this month, Sony had unveiled the Xperia ZR. Visually, the Xperia ZR has quite a bit in common with the current Xperia Z and ZL, with the circular lock button on the middle of the side of the device, the volume rocker below that and a dedicated camera button near the bottom.
It sports a 4.6-inch HD Reality display and is powered by Sony's own Mobile Bravia engine 2, which the company claims uses the same contrast enhancement technology that is present in Sony's range of Bravia TVs. The display panel is an OptiContrast panel, which is said to reduce reflections.
The Xperia ZR is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor by Qualcomm. It also has 4G LTE capabilities. The performance on the handset should be good thanks to the the powerful processor along with 2GB of RAM.
Other than being another typical high-end smartphone, the main selling point of the Xperia ZR is the IP55 and IP58 certification. This means that the handset is waterproof and dustproof; it can be kept submerged in up to 1.5 metres in fresh water for up to 30 minutes.
