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.
(1) Pixel reproduction:
Sony’s unique super resolution breathes new life into everything you see. This technology examines each pixel in an image and reproduces the ones that are lacking, giving you the sharpest images.
(2) Texture and outline improvement:
By selectively enhancing elements that help to render the texture and sharpen the outlines, images become clearer and crisper.
(3) Colour and contrast enhancement:
The Intelligent Image Enhancer reproduces the vividness of the image in its original colour. Pictures are selectively optimised by enhancing the contrast, making images appear more detailed and true to life.
(4) Noise reduction:
Intelligent Noise Reduction decreases the noise that can occur in high-motion scenes or footage shot in low-light conditions. As a result, images become clearer and smoother.
Astonishing colour and super sharp images – discover what the TRILUMINOS™ Display with X-Reality for mobile feels like.

OptiContrast™ and direct touch – less reflective, more responsive
We’ve eliminated a layer of air in the construction, bringing the touch panel closer to the display. This OptiContrast™ panel offers clearer viewing with less reflection – even in bright sunlight – as well as creating a seamless black surface when the phone is switched off.
By eliminating the sensor layer and integrating the sensor on the lens, we’ve managed to increase the responsiveness of the screen. So your touch is more effective and the experience on your Android smartphone is more intuitive.

Design & Durabilityclose
Attention to every detail
Created in collaboration with Sony’s consumer electronic experts, the Xperia Z Ultra does an excellent job of merging design with technology, creating a big screen phone with symmetry and balance in all directions. Quality craftsmanship and attention to every little detail means we’ve selected only premium materials that are nothing less than beautiful. Both the front and back are made of glass, with a seamless, reflection-coated surface. The result? An Android smartphone that mirrors the world around you, letting you get so immersed in the content that the hardware virtually disappears.
Ultra slim and ultra light
How can a 6.4” big-screen phone manage to be this slim and light? We’ve eliminated a layer of air and brought the display closer to the lens, for added touch sensitivity and smaller size. We then paired this with a new component layout and a skeleton frame. The outcome is a smartphone that allows for a slimness of 6.5 mm and a weight of no more than 212 grams, making the Xperia Z Ultra extremely portable and easy to hold in one hand.

IP (Ingress Protection) rating
IP 55/58 – what does it mean? The IP rating is a test certification that measures a device’s resistance levels to both dust and water. The ﬁrst digit in the two-digit IP rating indicates the level of protection against solid objects, including tiny dust particles. The second digit indicates how resistant the device is to water.

With its highly responsive screen that’s compatible with a pencil or metallic pen, this big-screen phone lets you take notes using Notebook or Sketchbook. In fact, you can even take notes from a locked screen and during calls. And the high accuracy and low latency offers exact precision, for a truly authentic pen-and-paper feel.

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 phone 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.
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.
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.
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.
