Sony Xperia Z Ultra benchmarks leak

Benchmarks for the upcoming Sony Xperia Z Ultra phablet have leaked online, revealing the handset is more powerful than rivals like the Samsung Galaxy S4.

Heavily rumoured to be a super-fast and ultra-slim device, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra may well beat out all the competition in terms of speed.

Supposedly packing the 2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, the leaked benchmark screenshot shows the Sony Xperia Z Ultra scoring a huge 32,173 point AnTuTu score.

That score shows just how powerful the Sony Xperia Z Ultra could be, especially compared to the Samsung Galaxy S4. The Samsung flagship also has the Snapdragon 800 CPU but only managed to reach 31,491 AnTuTu points.

The highly-rumoured Sony Xperia Z Ultra should be making an appearance very soon, as the online leaks are coming in thick and fast.

Potentially playing host to a 6.44-inch IPS LCD, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra should have an image density of if 342ppi with 1,920 x 1,080p resolutions.

The huge smartphone could have 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage bolstered by a microSD card slot supporting additional memory cards up to 64GB.

Strongly tipped to make an appearance at a Sony press event on July 4, the supersized smartphone was seen on the press invitation for the event in a slim side profile shot.

It could pack a stylus, making the 6.44-inch smartphone a strong rival to the existing Galaxy Note 2 or potential Galaxy Note 3 phablets.

Powered by a 3,000mAh battery, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra is said to have an 8-megapixel Exmor RS camera in the rear, with a 1.3-megapixel Exmor R snapper up front.

A full image of the Sony Xperia Z Ultra leaked last week, revealing the handset to resemble a supersized Sony Xperia Z smartphone, but it is not yet known whether it will retain the waterproof and dustproof qualities of the Xperia Z and Xperia Tablet Z.
