The Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet goes official, expected to hit the European shelves in Q3 this year.

Following a multitude of rumors and speculations, the Sony Zperia Z Ultra phablet is finally official. The monstrous Android casino device sports a 6.4-inch Triluminous screen with 1080p resolution and 344ppi density. The OptiContrast and X-Reality tech replace the Mobile BRAVIA, and is said to accommodate a regular pen or a pencil on top of the capacitive stylus.

The features of the newest Sony mobile casino device include a Snapdragon 800 chipset with 2.2GHz quad-core Krait 400 CPU, and Adreno 330 GPU. The phablet runs on the latest Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and a redesigned Sony UI taking full advantage of the extra power and screen surface.

The camera department of the mobile casino games tool has an 8MP Exmor-RS sensor with 1080p video capabilities, and HDR support for photos and movies. The design is similar to the OmniBalance looks of the Xperia Z with the tempered glass, but brings a new metal frame at 6.5mm which is even slimmer than the smartphone. Naturally, the phablet is also water resistant with IP58 certification, compared to IP57 of the Xperia Z.

The Sony Xperia Z Ultra supports 4G LTE, and further features include HD Voice, NFC, WALKMAN player with ClearAudio+ and xLOUD technologies. The whole thing is powered by a spacious 3,000mAh battery, which is enough to provide lengthy mobile blackjack sessions.

The device is scheduled to hit the stores in Europe at the end of Q3 at a price of EUR 719, however, signing a 2-year deal with some carriers could even allow prospective buyers to get it for free.
