The Sony phablet codenamed "Togari" may be one step closer to becoming a reality, with alleged specs for the device leaking out earlier today.
Website ePrice leaked the details on the device, which is expected to be officially dubbed the Xperia ZU (with the "U" standing for "Ultra), confirming that it will have a 6.44-inch display as previously rumored. With a resolution of 1920 x 1080, the IPS LCD display will have a 342 ppi density. The report indicates that the intended release date for the device is June 25, but no pricing or carrier details were provided.
Other specs include a 2.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of onboard storage (expandable up to 64GB via a microSD card slot), and a 3,000 mAh non-removable battery. The Xperia ZU is also expected to have a rear camera with an 8-megapixel Exmor RS sensor and a 1.3 megapixel Exmor R camera on the front.
But the ePrice report does specify that unlike competitor's phablets like the Samsung Galaxy Note line, the Xperia ZU will not come with a stylus. The device will, however, be compatible with third-party styluses. Whether or not any or all of these rumored specs turn out to be true will likely be determined on July 4, which is when Sony plans on holding a press conference in Paris.
