  • Speed and stamina with super-fast data, a lightning quick processor and great battery performance to keep your movies playing all day.

18th March, 2014: Sony India today introduced Xperia™ T2 Ultra, the next evolution in large-screen smartphone design. Designed specifically with customers from emerging markets in China, the Middle East, Africa and the Asia Pacific rim in mind, Xperia™ T2 Ultra brings together the best of Sony's imaging and display technologies with ground-breaking design efficiency to produce a stunning Android smartphone at a mid-range price point.

Incredible entertainment with you all the time
Sony's entertainment divisions have been delivering some of the world's greatest entertainment content and with Xperia™ T2 Ultra these experiences will be more integrated than ever. Sony's latest Album, Walkman™ and Movies apps will integrate out-of-the-box with cloud services to provide easy access to fantastic entertainment. For users in India, this will mean out-of-the-box integration with the Sony Entertainment Network as well as Sony's PlayMemories Online storage service.

To make the most of the movies and songs, whilst ensuring that users need never be parted from them, Xperia™ T2 Ultra combines a number of key design features to perfectly balance the need for a large screen with portability and battery endurance.

Xperia™ T2 Ultra's stunning 6 (15.24cm) HD IPS TRILUMINOS display extends to within 2.5 mm of the phone's edges. This means that it has a screen to phone size ratio of 73.6%, both making the most of the space available and ensuring that the phone is no wider than a standard credit card. It is also both slim (7.6 mm) and light (weighing only 173 ± 1g depending on variant differences), fitting easily in a jacket pocket.

Big, bright screens can often use a lot of power, but that's not a problem with Xperia™ T2 Ultra, Sony has ensured that it is ready to go the distance by incorporating a battery-efficient processor and massive 3000 mAh battery, coupled with Sony's unique Battery STAMINA Mode that automatically turns off functions to save power when you don't need them and restarts them when you do.

Sony's innovative smart social camera
Xperia™ T2 Ultra features a 13 megapixel camera, the best in its class2, that brings together the best of Sony's digital imaging technology to allow users to capture incredible images, and, coupled with Sony's new smart social camera ecosystem, smartphone photography can go far beyond the traditional snapshot.

The smart social camera system allows developers to create camera add-ons that extend functionality and re-define the role of the camera. Apps available at launch will include:

  • Collage: Allows you to drop images directly into creative photo collages by changing formats, layouts and backgrounds
  • Background defocus: Create stunning images full of depth by separating foreground elements and burring the background
  • Timeshift burst: Ensures you get the perfect photo every time by taking 31 photos within two seconds, both before and after you press the shutter. You can then scroll through them afterwards to select the perfect shot.
  • Sweep Panorama: Snap amazing and seamless panoramas easily. Take a snap then sweep the phone in a direction you set to capture wide-angle panoramas.

These will feature alongside a growing number of third party applications available through the Sony Select app store and accessible directly from the camera app on Xperia™ T2 Ultra. Already the smart social camera includes apps for services like Evernote and Sphere with many more launching in the coming months.

Xperia™ T2 Ultra at the heart of a connected ecosystem
With one-touch functions users can instantly and easily share music, photos and videos and movies from Xperia™ T2 Ultra with a wide range of NFC-enabled Sony devices, including speakers, SmartWatch, wireless headsets and TVs.

The SBH52 is a dynamic Smart Bluetooth™ Handset that provides easy hands-free call handling with a single press, while leaving your smartphone conveniently in your bag. It also provides you with stereo sound while enjoying movies on the Xperia™ T2 Ultra. The OLED display conveniently lets you browse your call log, view text messages, and see who's calling you. And with a sleek, minimal and splash-proof design you can now use it anywhere, in any weather. Use it as a quality stereo music headset to listen to music or to the built-in standalone FM radio with RDS. Pairing and connecting is achieved simply by touching it to the back of Xperia™ T2 Ultra or other NFC-enabled device.

Dual SIM, no compromise
Xperia™ T2 Ultra dual (the only variant available in India) offers a new experience through the incorporation of Sony's latest generation of dual SIM mobile technology.
