sony x-reality

A substantial update is being rolled out for Xperia Z ultra owners, bringing with it a slew of features that probably should have been included at launch. The update also has one very important feature that could really set a standard for all mobile devices moving forward.

Features like one-handed text input being inducted are a head-scratcher, but not X Reality. X Reality can probably be best described as an HD upgrade, giving your images a bit more clarity, color, and depth. Already present in Sony TVs, our explaination of X Reality will give you a better idea of how the technology works.

Check out the video below for a good look at the difference it brings. The Xperia Z Ultra is the first instance of X Reality being included in a smartphone, so we’re not sure how it will affect things like battery life yet. The X Reality engine launched with the device, but wasn’t being taken advantage of until this recent OTA update.
