The Taiwanese site ePrice has released some exclusive information about the upcoming Sony Xperia ZU, including a full list of specs and a date for the official unveiling. The device will be officially announced at Sony’s mobile event on June 25, so that’s less than two weeks left to wait.
The post also confirms the rumoured specs that we’d heard about — the Xperia ZU will feature the new top of the line quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at an impressive 2.2Ghz, there will be 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal memory, an expandable microSD slot with support for an additional 64GB of space, an 8 megapixel rear camera, a 1.3 megapixel rear camera, and a non-replaceable 3000mAh battery. Pfew, time for a breather.
The only worrying component on the list is the 3000mAh battery. Whilst that isn’t particularly small by smartphone standards, it will have less charge time that the Galaxy Note 2’s 3100mAh battery. I can’t help but worry about what the battery life will be like with an even larger screen and more powerful processor.
Speaking of screens, we already knew that the phone would be pretty large and it looks like the leaks were true. The Xperia ZU will feature a massive 6.4-inch X-Reality display with a resolution of 1920
