Key specifications of Xperia T2 Ultra include: 6” HD display (720p) with TRILUMINOSTM and Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, 13 MP camera with Exmor RS, 1.1 MP front camera with Exmor R, access to Sony’s one-touch ecosystem of 132 NFC connected accessories, Snapdragon Quad-core 1.4 GHz processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, micro SD slot for up to 32GB storage and 3,000 mAh battery with STAMINA Mode.

Sony Xperia T2 Ultra smartphone targets emerging mobile markets

The main attraction of Xperia T2 Ultra would be the addition of entertainment content. Sony’s latest Album, Walkman and Movies apps will integrate with cloud services to provide easy access to entertainment.

Asia Pacific mobile users will have the Sony Entertainment Network as well as Sony’s PlayMemories Online storage service, whilst China users will have access to an exclusive Sony movies channel via Sohu and the Sony Zone, a 320Kbps high quality streaming MP3 service.

Xperia T2 Ultra’s 6” HD TRILUMINOS display extends to within 2.5 mm of the phone’s edges. It has a screen to phone size ratio of 73.6 percent, both making the most of the space available and ensuring that the phone is no wider than a standard credit card. It is also 7.6 mm slim and weighing 173 gram.

The smart social camera system allows developers to create camera add-ons that extend functionality and re-define the role of the camera.

Apps available at launch will include:

Portrait Retouch: Turn Xperia T2 Ultra into a virtual mirror and experiment with make-up effects before snapping the perfect self-portrait

Collage: Allows you to drop images directly into creative photo collages by changing formats, layouts and backgrounds

Background defocus: Create stunning images full of depth by separating foreground elements and burring the background

Timeshift burst: Ensures you get the perfect photo every time by taking 31 photos within two seconds, both before and after you press the shutter. You can then scroll through them afterwards to select the perfect shot.

Sweep Panorama: Snap amazing and seamless panoramas easily. Take a snap then sweep the phone in a direction you set to capture wide-angle panoramas.

These will feature alongside a growing number of third party applications available through the Sony Select app store and accessible directly from the camera app on Xperia T2 Ultra. Already the smart social camera includes apps for services like Evernote and Sphere with many more launching in the coming months.

With one-touch functions users can share music, photos and videos and movies from Xperia T2 Ultra with a wide range of NFC-enabled Sony devices, including speakers, SmartWatch, wireless headsets and TVs.

The OLED display conveniently lets you browse your call log, view text messages, and see who’s calling you.

You can use it as a quality stereo music headset to listen to music or to the built-in standalone FM radio with RDS. Pairing and connecting is achieved simply by touching it to the back of Xperia T2 Ultra or other NFC-enabled device.
