Some tech specs purportedly describing Sony's first monster-sized "phablet" have appeared online, suggesting the company is about to launch an enormous 6.44-inch Xperia model powered by a a top-of-the-range Snapdragon 800 processor.

The phone, which may arrive under the rumoured Xperia ZU or Z Ultra name, is said to be outputting at the full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution, meaning that even such a large screen ends up generating an impressive 342ppi pixel density.

Other specs made public by Taiwanese site Eprice suggest the Xperia ZU should arrive powered by Qualcomm's top-spec Snapdragon 800 chipset, with the quad-core processor clocked at a stonking 2.2GHz and backed by the same 2GB of RAM as used by most of today's high-end smartphones.

A 3,000mAh battery ought to keep the thing running for an acceptable amount of time. Given that Sony has been inviting journalists to attend a series of launch events around the world on June 25th, we may well see this rumoured thing become an actual reality later this month. [Eprice via Techradar]
