6-plus-inch Sony Xperia device teased in event invite
‘A big surprise’ promised for July 4 event in Paris
All the pieces are starting to fall into place for the announcement of Sony’s 6-inch Android device, codenamed “Togari.” The phone, which is variously rumored to come to market as either “Xperia ZU” or “Xperia Z Ultra” cropped up late last week in a kitten-centric blurry-cam shot. And today Sony itself has given away a glimpse of the device’s side, in an invite sent out to French press.
The invite for an event in Paris on July 4 shows what looks like the right edge of the device. There’s Sony’s trademark rounded power button, a volume rocker, and what seems to be a dedicated camera key. In addition, there’s an exposed headphones jack up top, suggesting the “Togari” might not boast the same water-resistance credentials as its 5-inch sibling, the Xperia Z. Besides that, Sony Mobile promises attendees “une surprise de taille” — a big surprise. A 6-inch phone would certainly fit that bill.
If the rumors are accurate, the Xperia Z Ultra — or whatever it’s called — will go up against Samsung’s Galaxy Mega, as well as HTC’s rumored “T6”, also said to be a 6-inch handset. Rumored specs for Sony’s 6-incher include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 CPU, 2GB of RAM, a 6.44-inch 1080p “Triluminous” display, an 8-megapixel camera and a thickness of just 6.5mm.
With a similar event scheduled for Germany for June 25, it looks like we won’t have long to wait to find out exactly what Sony’s bringing to the table.
