On Monday, Sony announced via a Sony Xperia CA tweet that the Xperia Z Ultra would be heading to Canada this October. With their last tweet about it stating "It's almost here ...", we're hoping for an early October release.
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra features a TRILUMINOUS display (providing 'astonishing authentic colour'), OptiContrast (less reflective), Direct Touch (more responsive), and has a rating of IP55 & IP58 - meaning it's waterprooof (can be kept under 1.50 metres of freshwater for up to 30 minutes) and dust-resistant. The device falls into the phablet category with its monster 6.4" display, and should perform well with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and Adreno 330 GPU (graphics processing unit). No Canadian carriers or pricing has been revealed yet.
