We’ve heard rumors about the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra arriving at T-Mobile in the US and now we’ve got somewhat of a confirmation thanks to the FCC. The smartphone has received certification and it comes with LTE radios compatible with the magenta carrier.
What we still need to know is a release date and price. With the Sony Xperia T2 Ultra getting certified at the FCC, we could see it go official as soon as next week, or even later depending on T-Mobile’s plans. SEMC Blog which came across the filing suggests that the smartphone will be an affordable option on the carrier. If so, the device could sell for free with normal monthly payments for 24 months.
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra carries the model number D5316 for T-Mobile. The smartphone is a 6-inch phablet that comes with an HD display backed by the company’s Bravia Engine 2 technology. On the inside, the device features a 1.4GHz quad core processor and 1GB of RAM, while storage is in the hands on 8GB flash memory and a microSDXC card slot. Additionally, the handset comes with a 13MP Exmor RS camera which was launched with the Xperia Z, ZL and ZR devices a year back.
The Sony Xperia T2 Ultra has so far gone on sale in India and in Europe (not the UK). The device comes with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean out of the box and it will be updated to 4.4 KitKat in the future.
