Want a monster handset with a FullHD screen that’s dust-resistant, water-proof and decked out with top-of-the-line hardware? The Sony Xperia Z Ultra, which has just gone up for order on online stores in India, will get you all that for Rs. 44,990.

The smartphone is packed with some killer features:
-6.4-inch Triluminous Display with mobile Bravia engine and shatter-proof, scratch-resistant glass (1920x1080 pixels, 344 ppi)
-Handwriting recognition, compatible with any pencil as well as capacitive stylus and metal pens with a tip diameter over 1mm.

-2.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor
-16GB internal memory, microSD up to 64GB
-8MP rear camera with Exmor RS for mobile, HDR, FullHD video recording
-2MP front camera with FullHD video recording
-3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC

-Sony’s ClearAudio+ and Xloud modes for enhanced audio
-Sony WALKMAN, Albums, Movies, Reader apps pre-installed
-Android 4.2 Jelly Bean

That’s a lot of tech, but the real seller here is that it’s the slimmest FullHD touchscreen with a rugged build quality. It has an IP55 and IP58 rating for dust resistance and water proofing. And at 6.5mm thin, it’s super sleek.

While it’s not officially launched yet, It’s already available with an additional 16GB microSD card from Saholic . The listing also indicates that the MRP of the device is going to be Rs. 46,990, but it currently has a small discount.
