Xperia ZU – Another Tiger Phablet by Sony (Togari)

The Sony Xperia ZU also known as Xperia Z Ultra or “Togari” is in the midst of rumours again. The upcoming device will be announced officially on July 4th at a press event in Paris. The earlier release rumours suggests that the device was scheduled for June 20th event in Germany. But the date had arrived and gone, and we did not see any imprints of the phablet at the event. But the contemporary sent invite in Paris evidently gives a glance of the upcoming smartphone.

The invitation articulates, “Sony Mobile reserves a big disclosure for you”. It definitely indicates that the ‘big’ in the above statement is a pointer to the big screen of the phablet. The invitation displays a side view of the phablet, illustrating a spherical power key. The rumoured specs and slim profile of the device completely justify what we perceive in the invitation.
