It’s no doubt that Sony’s phablet offering is more of a tablet. In fact, when you put the Xperia Z Ultra side-by-side with the Nexus 7, they are pretty much the same size. Even though the Xperia Z Ultra’s display is only 6.44-inches and the Nexus 7 is 7-inches. There’s already the Google Play Edition of the Xperia Z Ultra, but now there appears to be a WiFi-Only version as well. Which this visit to the FCC by the WiFi only version of the Xperia Z Ultra isn’t the first time we’ve heard of this device.
The model number in this one is the SGP412, and there are actual photos of the device (which are in the gallery at the bottom of this post). The Xperia Z Ultra WiFi only is still water-resistant, but what else did we expect from Sony? The battery is also shown in the pictures, with a slightly smaller capacity than the 3G/LTE model of the Xperia Z Ultra. Which is probably because you don’t need that big of a battery when it doesn’t have a 3G or LTE radio inside. We may be seeing this version of the Xperia Z Ultra show up at Mobile World Congress next month, alongside the Xperia Z2, so we’ll be on the lookout for both.
For those that aren’t familiar, the Xperia Z Ultra also features 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage along with a microSD card slot, 3000mAh battery, and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. To top it all off, there’s a 6.44-inch full HD 1080p Triluminos display on there. There’s also stylus support, and actually, anything that has a tip can be used as a stylus. So even a pencil or pen can be used. Which is pretty cool.
