Back in March we reported that Sony was looking to add to their Xperia line, and today we have confirmation on one of the devices. Although the Sony Xperia UL has yet to be officially unveiled, the folks over at CNMO have published the first live pictures of the phone for us all to see.
The Xperia UL looks to feature a nice sized 5-inch touchscreen display and a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, as well as 2GB of RAM. On top of that, the device is also rumored to include 32GB of internal memory and a high-capacity 2,300 mAh Li-Ion battery. In the end, this is not meant to be a top-tier Andy, but a nice replacement for the Xperia Z. We’re not exactly sure if the UL will include a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera like the Xperia Z, however if you look at the images, it’s clear that it will come with an LED flash for night pictures, and a secondary front-facing camera for video calls.
We still believe the Xperia UL will ship with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, but just like most rumors, there is no confirmation quite yet. As for availability, we are still hearing that it is headed to Japan, more specifically to KDDI, one of the carriers over there. Whether it will be a KDDI exclusive is still anyone’s guess.
