Vivid colours on a 6” HD display
Superior brightness on a HD mobile screen
The wide-viewing angle screen of the Xperia T2 Ultra HD mobile is a 6” 720p HD TRILUMINOS™ Display for mobile. Built with the same groundbreaking technology as Sony BRAVIA® TVs, it gives you amazingly vivid colours and razor-sharp images.
Triluminos™ display for mobile – astonishingly authentic colours
Unique to Sony, Triluminos™ display technology creates incredibly true, natural colour shades – just the way you want them. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, making landscapes and seascapes appear more vivid. Faces look better too, with natural skin tones.
With Sony’s own unique display innovation, the Triluminos™ display delivers a significantly wider colour range, which gives a far more natural and vivid viewing experience with a heightened sense of depth.
Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 – true Screen intelligence
The second generation of our acclaimed Mobile BRAVIA® Engine, Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 delivers an even better viewing experience by adding new real-time contrast optimisation to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality colour management and noise reduction. Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 is also able to analyse content type and adjust the image accordingly.
(1) Contrast enhancement
Contrast in images and video is enhanced by making the darkest parts slightly darker, which brings out details in the picture.
(2) Colour management
Colour saturation is increased for specified colour ranges, which makes the colours deeper and more vivid. And the intelligent Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 software reproduces skin colour exactly as it appears to the naked eye.
(3) Noise reduction
Distortion and noise is reduced when streaming low-quality video from online sources, such as YouTube. Noise is reduced both to individual frames and between frames, for clearer viewing.
(4) Sharpness filter
Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 applies a sharpness filter to increase the overall detail level in the image. This is done by enhancing the edges and contrast without increasing noise.
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra is the world’s most portable smartphone in its class*
For a phone with a large six-inch display, the Xperia T2 Ultra HD mobile is surprisingly light, portable and sleek. One of the reasons for this is the extremely high screen to phone size ratio – 73.7%, to be exact.

Easy one-hand operation
The Xperia T2 Ultra features an easy-toggle keyboard for one-handed input. Ideal when using its one-handed keypad, centralised dial pad and easy-trigger notification tray.
A 13 MP camera for amazing picture quality
With the Xperia T2 Ultra HD mobile, we’ve created a camera that takes exceptional quality pictures. The 13-megapixel camera is built with the very same components as Sony’s digital cameras, and features an Exmor RS™ mobile image sensor and HDR for pictures and videos.
Superior Auto. Superior photos.
From illuminated night views to close-up macro photos, Superior Auto recognises up to 36 scene types and adjusts the settings automatically, to help you get the best photos anywhere, at any time. As the default camera mode, Superior Auto turns HDR on or off depending on your scene. HDR mode takes multiple shots with varied exposures and then merges them together to make your photos look natural – even in backlit conditions.
HDR for photos and video – natural colours in any light
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is an imaging technology that gives you clear photos against strong backlight. With HDR, your Android™ smartphone captures the same image at different exposure levels and layers them to create one optimised photo. And thanks to HDR for video, you can film in high contrast situations. You get great footage, even if your subject stands in front of a window or the setting sun.
Exmor RS™ for mobile – stunning shots in any light
The camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras. Exmor RS™ for mobile is an evolution of our Sony image sensor technology, with a next-generation BSI light sensor. By adopting the technology of luminance and colour noise reduction, we’ve created a camera that snaps highly detailed shots with low noise – even in challenging lighting conditions. You’re now also able to reproduce objects in more vivid colours and capture night images and faces in stunning clarity.
Make more of your pictures with our camera apps
Your Xperia T2 Ultra HD mobile comes preloaded with camera apps to make your pictures more fun and spectacular – or simply perfect. In addition to the pre-installed apps, there are more you can download. Go to your camera’s viewfinder and click on ‘+Apps’ to see what’s available.
Social live – broadcast your precious moments live
With Social live, you can broadcast every precious moment as it happens live via Facebook. Get your friends’ responses right on the screen and keep the conversation going all in real time.
Portrait retouch – style your close-ups
Make your subjects more photogenic than ever before. This fun app will let you apply different styles to your portrait – and you can check the change in real time, before capturing the shot.
Timeshift burst – always get the best picture
With the Xperia T2 Ultra, you truly get the best camera phone. It’s so intelligent that it captures 31 frames in just 2 seconds – starting even before you press the shutter. Scroll back and forth to select the perfect image, or feel free to keep them all.
AR effect – add a funny angle to your shots
Switch your camera to AR effect mode and add some fun animations to your pictures. Ranging from dinosaurs to ocean life, these fully customisable themes can be edited easily. So if there are too many fish in the sea, just remove a few.
Create a blurred out background or foreground. Background defocus simulates a shallow depth of field, capturing two photos at different focus settings and allowing you to merge the different depths.
Snapdragon™ quad-core processor – lightning speed performance
The advanced 1.4 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon quad-core processor gives you maximum performance and speed, and incredible graphics, without draining your battery. Run multiple apps simultaneously, surf the web with no loading time and stream videos without a break. The Snapdragon processor is asynchronous, which means each core is powered up and down independently. So you get the precise amount of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don’t.
(1) Super-fast performance
(2) Better battery life
(3) Improved multitasking
Ultra-fast LTE/4G technology
Your Xperia smartphone has a built-in LTE/4G modem. This enables blazing internet connections with up to 150 Mbit/s download and 50 MBit/s upload speeds.
Significantly improve battery life with Battery STAMINA Mode
Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you’re not actively using them. All those apps that you have on your Android™ smartphone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA Mode saves you wasted battery drain. It recognises when you’re not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don’t need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.
Get only the important notices
With Battery STAMINA Mode, Wi-Fi and data traffic are disabled during standby, but you still receive incoming calls, texts and alarms. And since everyone has different needs, you can easily customise which apps you want to receive push notifications from even in standby mode. Facebook notifications on or off? It’s up to you.
