Sony unveiled its latest flagship Android smartphone, the Xperia Z Ultra, last month and recently made it available for pre-order in Hong Kong as well. Now, the smartphone has made an appearance on online shopping portal Saholic as well. Though the availability details have not been revealed yet, reports point out to a possible availability date of July 31 in India.

The price at which the handset will be made available in the sub-continent has not been revealed either, but going by the current pre-booking price of HK$ 6,198 (or Rs 50,000) in Hong Kong, it can be assumed that that the Xperia Z Ultra will be priced around the same in India as well.

Looking at the specifications of the phone, the Xperia Z Ultra comes with a 6.4-inch display that packs full HD Triluminos technology for providing better visuals, according to the company. The smartphone sports Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean operating system running the show. Internally, the smartphone is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor.

Dimension-wise, the phone measures a slim 6.5 mm thickness and weighs a surprising 212 grams. Keeping in mind the display size as well as the powerful processor, this is quite good. The smartphone makes use of an aluminium chassis instead of the plastic one seen in Xperia Z for added durability. The smartphone also features 2GB of RAM as well as an Adreno 330 GPU.
One of the coolest features of the Xperia Z Ultra may be its ability to shoot videos and images underwater, according to the company. Optics-wise, the smartphone comes with an 8 megapixel primary camera and a 2 megapixel front shooter which features Exmor RS for mobile, as well as HDR for both photos and film. Additionally, the phone comes with a Superior Auto mode, which will automatically enable HDR and noise reduction wherever needed. Connectivity is taken care of with the smartphone supporting NFC, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0 as well as FM radio with RDS.
