After first presenting the device for the first time back in January, Sony has now officially rolled out the all-new Sony Xperia T2 Ultra phablet in the Indian market at a starting price of Rs 25,990. The device will be available at all retail stores starting tomorrow.
Specs-wise, the all-new Xperia T2 Ultra has a 6-inch HD 1280X720 pixels display with 2.5mm bezels and Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2 display technology. It runs on a customised version of Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box and comes with 1GB of RAM and 8GB internal storage, which can be expanded to up to 32GB via microSD card. Sony has used the 1.4GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core SoC processor in the phablet, the same chipset that powers the Moto G smartphone.
Sony Xperia T2 Ultra has a 13 megapixel camera with LED flash on the back and a 1.1 megapixel camera in the front. The connectivity suite of the device includes features like 2G, 3G, 4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, microUSB 2.0 and NFC.

The manufacturer is preloading proprietary apps like Walkman, Album, Movies and PlayMemories online storage on the Xperia T2 Ultra.
At the above mentioned specs and price tag, the Xperia T2 Ultra dual will be up against the likes of Huawei Ascend Mate and the Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3. Among the three phones, the Galaxy Mega 6.3 boasts of the most powerful features and specs, however it loses out in the camera department and on the pricing front – as its asking price of Rs 27,999 is the highest among the three devices.
The Huawei Ascent Mate features average specs, boasts of a 2GB RAM and comes with powerful battery. The sticker price reads Rs 24,000 for the Ascent Mate making it the most economical option.
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra on the other hand, is the newest device among the three, features powerful hardware, comes at reasonable price and is backed with the trusted Sony brand – making it the most viable option in the market right now in the mid-range phablet segment.
