Remember that monster phablet from Sony, the Xperia ZU? If you’re in the market for devices that big, we’ve got some more details on a release date and the hardware behind the ZU. According to Taiwanese site ePrice, Sony will make the Xperia ZU official on June 25th, which fortunately isn’t too far off. ePrice also listed some specs for the device, including that massive 6.4-inch, 1080p screen. The ZU will be one of the first devices to run Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 CPU, clocked at 2.2 GHz, and will also feature 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot, an 8 MP rear camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery. Compared to phones of similar size, that battery isn’t particularly large, (the Galaxy Note II has a 3,100 mAh battery, for reference) but hopefully some extreme software optimization from Sony and Qualcomm’s latest monster processor will keep battery life as a positive for the device.

As soon as June 25th rolls around, we’ll keep you up to date on Sony’s official announcement.

    It will be interesting to know and see just how large this phone will be. Will the screen cover the entire face in order to minimize its external dimension.
    This high powered smartphone has to fit in most of my pockets. The other potential deal killer will be the inclusion of a glass back. A very large device should not feel slippery in the hand.
    HTC could end up with my money with its One Max 5.9″ smartphone if Sony fail to meet my criteria.
