Going by the internal code name of Togari, sources close to the website confirmed that the name Xperia ZU is final. Along with that, they have passed along some interesting news. The Xperia ZU will only include an 8 MP camera from Sony. A 13 MP camera will not be included due to shortage of modules needed. But don’t fret, as the ZU will pack Sony’s newest display related technology: a 6.44-inch 1080p Triluminos color display. Additionally, the Xperia ZU will come with the X-Reality Engine, and will also include an IP58 certification (noted as a water-resistant device: 1m for up to 30 minutes.) It is also being said that the ZU will come with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 800 SoC. The CPU will be clocked at a nice 2.3 GHz, the maximum clock speed as per Qualcomm’s specifications.

That is all of the information we have at the moment. As with most new devices, companies like to share the best details first. Of course no price point or release date has been established, however we expect to receive more info at the official announcement later this month.

    Please Sony, no glass back on the ZU. A smartphone of this size requires additional handling skills and a slippery surface at rear will mean more accidents. There is also the issue of more frequent cleaning.
    Wrapping this baby in a case may make it impossible to pocket.
    I hope common sense prevails.
