The 6.4-inch Xperia Z Ultra Wi-Fi only model is available at 52,000 yen, or roughly Rs. 31,000, and is listed on the company’s Japanese website. However, the international pricing and availability of the Wi-Fi only variant of Sony Xperia Z Ultra is yet to be revealed.

The users will get the same hardware specs as seen in Xperia Ultra’s international variant, which is already available in the market, without the 3G / LTE radio. The tablet runs on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS and is equipped with 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, a 1080×1920 pixel 344ppi Triluminos display, all incorporated in a 6.5mm sleek body. The smartphone is available in White and Black colour variants.

Talking about Xperia models, a new report regarding the rumoured Sony Xperia Z2 or D5603 “Sirius” points to the numerous Xperia UI changes expected to be skinned on top of Android 4.4 KitKat when the device ships.

 The screenshots were first spotted by Xperia Blog, which also detailed the new features. Some of the features said to be included are 4K recording, Timeshift video, smart backlight control, the presence of two home launchers, USB DAC audio support, and more.

 One of the expected features, seen previously in Xperia Tablet Z, is the ability to wake up the screen by double tapping on it (also similar to LG Knock). An answering machine feature is also said to come with the rumoured Xperia Z2’s dialler. The Xperia Blog also states that users will be able to choose the type of greeting.
