Xperia T2 Ultra is a large smartphone aimed at emerging markets. We do not have information about the expected retail price, but we have compared the Xperia T2 Ultra hardware with Xperia Z Ultra which hinting at a lower price. The size of the display is equally large, but the resolution of 720 x 1080 pixels is not comparable to Xperia Z Ultras Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. Xperia T2 is noticeably smaller in size even though the display size difference is just 0.44 inch. 6.44 vs 6.0 inch. 1080 x 720 pixels on a 6-inch display is the same as 216 PPI which we consider as a quite low resolution. On the other hand, most smartphones with huge displays tend to have a low PPI.
