A purported image of the upcoming Xperia Z Ultra has leaked showing a turned on device featuring a large display. But is it real?

We’ve seen a variety of leaks allegedly showing the upcoming 6.44-inch Sony smartphone, but this is the first one that’s apparently showing a working handset. The image seems to clearly suggest that we’re looking at a rather large handset here, of tablet proportions if you will, that sits comfortably in someone’s lap . That is, naturally, if we’re looking at the real device.

The handset is expected to be unveiled during Sony’s upcoming media events set for June 25 in Munich, Germany and July 4 in Paris, France.

Since these events are getting closer and closer, we’re not surprised to see more and more leaks hit the web. But we’re still going to hold on to our grain of salt with such unconfirmed images.

Even the source, French site NowhereElse, doesn’t seem convinced that this is indeed the Xperia Z Ultra. The publication says that the image could be a fake, showing an Xperia ZR cleverly photograph to fool the audience.

The Xperia ZR (image below) is a recently announced Android smartphone that packs a 4.55-inch display, which means it’s smaller than the Xperia Z. Comparatively, the Xperia Z Ultra is expected to pack a 6.44-inch display, as we mentioned before.

        Dont you find the home button and back button bar on the bottom anoying? Is it not as bad as I imagine?

  • Gilles LeBlanc

    On screen home and back button is a deal breaker for me. Looks like im gonna see what HTC Max and Note 3 are doing. Horrible bezel and wasted screen space, no thanks.

    A large phone with extra large bezels…..not possible

    Saw this on another site yesterday and the size of the frame relative to the overall size of the device immediately made me think of ZR, and the front cam placement defended top confirm it. However it seems the black strip with the on-screen buttons are more narrow on the picture that is supposed to be the Togari, can’t be sure then.
