We knew for a while about the existence of the Sony Xperia UL as the smartphone was spotted in some official FCC documents. In the meantime, the Asian phone maker has decided to officially launch the Sony Xperia UL terminal in Japan. The Sony Xperia UL seems to be a bit thicker than the Xperia Z, but let’s have a look at its technical specifications.
Even though the rumor mill was indicating that the new smartphone will be underpinned by a Snapdragon 600 chipset, but after all it comes with a Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC with four Krait 200 cores clocked at 1.5 GHz, just like the unit that was squeezed inside the Xperia Z flagship.
The handset is also borrowing the 5-inch full HD TFT display from the aforementioned smartphone, while its back accomodates a 13 megapixel camera with Exmor RS camera and support for full HD video recording and burst mode with 15 fps capture.
The Spny Xperia UL also comes with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal flash storage, plus all the connectivity features worthy of a modern smartphone like 4G LTE, NFC chip, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0, and WiFi 802.11 a / b / g / n.
The list of features also includes the Felica wireless payment system and a physical button for the camera. Sony Xperia UL also comes with a case that is water and dust proof.
For the time being we know that the Sony Xperia UL will debut on the Japanese market through KDDI carrier, in white, balck and pink liveries. The Sony Xperia UL release date was set for May 25th. There’s no word yet for when the smartphone will debut on the European and North American markets.
