Sony's latest only headed for Japan at present, but packs some good looking specs

Yet another Sony smartphone has been formally announced, but like the Xperia A before it, this one too is destined only for Japan at the moment. Previously rumored, it's called the Xperia UL, and appears to be cut from a similar mould to the Xperia Z. 

Spec wise, we're looking at another 5-inch, 1080p display. Underneath, propelling everything along is a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM and a 2300mAh battery. On-board storage is 16GB, and cameras come in at 13MP on the back and 3.1MP on the front. And, in true Sony fashion the Xperia UL is waterproof and dustproof. 

The Xperia UL retains some of the same design features as the Xperia Z too. That same on/off button on the side, but the glass back is gone. It appears to be available in three different colors -- black, white and pink -- and is said to be heading to both KDDI and NTT Docomo in the coming weeks.

Sony Xperia UL announced for Japan, 5-inches and 1080p display


"Yet another Sony smartphone has been formally announced"

I see what you did there. You failed to grasp the simple concept that Sony offer different models in different regions, and you used that to twist it into a sensationalist intro.

Exactly! I never see comments like 'Yet another Samsung phone' as they release the 15th version of their Galaxy line. The media has a clear double standard when talking about the phone manufacturers.

From some google results, it seems like it's a mix of the Z and ZL.
Same processor, cameras, and screen.

Like ZL:
