At the beginning of the year, Sony made a big splash by showcasing its flagship smartphones Xperia Z and Xperia ZL. Now there is rumor that Sony is working on a phablet, codename ‘Togari’.
VR-Zone recently reported that this new device is likely to be named Xperia ZU. It’s also reported that Sony has already sent out invitations for an event that is taking place in Germany on June 25 where the phablet is likely to make its debut.
Sony Togari is expected to come with 6.44-inch full-HD display with pixel density of about 342ppi, either Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 or 800 processor, 8-megapixel camera, X-Reality Engine and an upgraded Mobile Bravia Engine 2. The 9.4 mm thick phablet comes in 16/ 32/ 64GB storage options.
Just like the Sony Xperia Z, this phablet is expected to come with IP58 certification, which means this will be another waterproof and dust proof device.
Sony Xperia ZU, if and when it launches, will be the first phablet by the Japanese company and it is expected to compete head on with the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3, Galaxy Note II and Huawei Ascend Mate. Asus too has entered into phablet arena with Asus FonePad Note FHD6. This phablet sports a 6-inch, 1080p Super IPS+ display along with 1.6GHz dual-core Intel Atom Z2560 processor and 2GB of RAM.
