TRILUMINOS™ Display for MobileFor astonishingly authentic colour
Xperia Z Ultra incorporates TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile to present rich, authentic colours with subtle tones, while replicating bold colours including hard-to-reproduce reds, blues and greens. By integrating Sony's own unique display innovation, this technique delivers a significantly wider colour gamut, carrying a far more natural and vivid viewing experience with a heightened sense of depth.X-Reality for mobile
From low-resolution web videos to high-resolution movies - with Sony's latest picture engine, exclusive X-Reality for mobile - everything you see on Xperia Z Ultra's big screen is analysed and selectively processed to give clean, clear and lifelike pictures. Three unique noise reduction features work their magic prior to upscaling. While Sony's intelligent display technology analyses each image to optimise pixels, texture, outline, colour, contrast and noise, creating the best viewing experience possible.
- (1) Pixel reproduction:
- Sony's unique Super resolution technology analyses each pixel in an image and reproduces the ones that are lacking, giving you the sharpest images.
- (2) Texture and outline improvement:
- By selectively enhancing elements that help to render the texture and sharpen the outlines, images become clearer and crisper.
- (3) Colour and contrast enhancement:
- The Intelligent Image Enhancer reproduces the vividness of the image in its original colour. Pictures are selectively optimised by enhancing the contrast, making images look more detailed and true to life.
- (4) Noise reduction:
- Intelligent Noise Reduction decreases noise which can sometimes occur in high-motion scenes or footage shot in low-light conditions. As a result, images become clearer and smoother.
Experience more. Xperia Z Ultra displays 60% more than a standard smartphone*.

You get 6 icons per row on your home screen, instead of the standard 4.Less reflective, more responsive - OptiContrast™ & Direct Touch
We've eliminated a layer of air in the construction, bringing the touch panel closer to the display. This OptiContrast™ panel makes for less reflection and clearer viewing - even in bright sunlight, as well as creating a seamlessly black surface when the phone is turned off.
By eliminating the sensor layer and integrating the sensor on the lens, we've managed to increase the responsiveness of the screen. So your touch is more effective and the experience on your Android smartphone is more intuitive.

Design & DurabilityAttention to every detail
Created in collaboration with Sony consumer electronic experts, Xperia Z Ultra does an excellent job of merging design with technology, creating a big screen phone with symmetry and balance in all directions. Quality craftsmanship and attention to every little detail means we've only selected premium materials that are nothing less than beautiful. Both the front and back are made of glass, with a seamless, refection-coated surface. The result? An Android smartphone that mirrors the world around you, while letting you get so immersed in the content that the hardware virtually disappears.Ultra slim and ultra light
How can a 6.4" big screen phone manage to be this slim and light? We've eliminated a layer of air and brought the display closer to the lens, for added touch sensitivity and a smaller size. We then paired this with a new component layout and a skeleton frame. The outcome is a Android smartphone that allows for a slimness of 6.5 mm and a weight of no more than 212 grams, making Xperia Z Ultra extremely portable and easy to hold in one hand.Durability

Both the front and back panels are made with durable tempered glass, coated with an anti-scratch film. And the skeleton frame is made of tough glass fibre polyamide.

BatteryAn amazing battery to match an amazing display
Battery life is key when choosing a big screen phone. And the display remains the biggest drain on battery, Sony's battery and display technology have been developed together so you to enjoy your Xperia Z Ultra to the max. Even with heavy duty phone and data usage, the 3000 mAh battery will give you an outstanding standby time, allowing you to go longer between charges.Significantly improve battery life with Battery STAMINA Mode
Android smartphones use a lot of power, even when you're not actively using them. All those apps that you have on your phone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA Mode saves you wasted battery drain. It recognises when you're not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don't need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.

CameraStunning shots in any light - 8 MP camera with Exmor RS™ for mobile
The 8 megapixel camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and colour noise reduction, we've created a camera that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise - even in challenging lighting conditions.
