Contrary to own statements, claiming that only the Z line would be upgraded to Android 5.0 Lollipop, Sony seems to be willing to benefit a greater number of users, which is very good. The Xperia T2 Ultra will also receive the latest version of Google’s mobile OS.
Phablet users may soon enjoy all the new features of Lollipop, highlighting the Material Design, intelligent and interactive notifications, creating multiple user profiles – the best Windows-style desktop – ability to move applications to the memory card or to even download them directly to microSD (depends on developer’s approval), quick shortcuts, among other novelties.
The Xperia T2 Ultra is a pioneer phablet for being the first to support two SIM cards and offers a close to the flagship Sony experience, and far superior to other devices in the same category considered high-end. Aimed at content consumption, the device has full HD resolution of 1280 × 720, which gives a relatively low density of 245 ppi. Still, it is a high quality TFT screen, with the Triluminos technology from Sony. The rear camera has 13 megapixel resolution that records in HD resolution of 720p at 30fps and comes with an LED flash. The front camera is 1.1. The processor is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.4GHz and is accompanied by a GPU Adreno 305. The device has 1GB of RAM and only 8GB of internal storage. The expansion has different limits according to the version of Android: in KitKat is limited to 32GB, as in the coming Lollipop comes to 64GB – another gain brought by the update. It has proximity sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and microphone for noise reduction. The battery is the highlight, provided with excellent 3000 mAh. The only really negative point is the lack of support for 4G networks.
