Xperia UL was revealed today by Japanese carrier KDDi. It packs the same 5-inch 1080p screen as the Xperia Z flagship, as well as its water and dust resistance.
A 1.5 GHz quad-core processor is also in the mix, as well as the Adreno 320 GPU and 2 GB of RAM, but the real star of the show will be 13 MP camera sensor, which, besides HD video recording, is capable of taking burst photos at up to 15 frames per second. The Xperia UL also comes complete with a dedicated camera button, which the Xperia Z doesn’t have.
There’s also a huge array of connectivity extras, such as NFC, DLNA, IR-port, as well as support for the Felica mobile wallet service in Japan. It will run Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.
The smartphone is expected to go on sale for KDDi in Japan on May 25 in pink and black color variants, and it will probably remain a KDDi exclusive.
