The Xperia Z Ultra got its start last year as a 6.4-inch phablet, but the super-sized smartphone is getting a second life this week as a Wi-Fi only tablet when it launches in Japan this Friday. Sony confirmed the news this morning, setting the Android slate’s price at 52,000 yen (roughly $499).
Beside’s the fact that it can’t connect to a cellular signal, Sony’s new tablet is the same as the original Xperia Z Ultra inside and out. It comes equipped with a 6.4-inch LCD 1080p display, a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, an 8-megapixel camera, 16GB of onboard storage, 2GB of RAM and runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean out of the box.
Sony says there are no plans to bring the device to the U.S. or anywhere else outside Japan in the near future. However, the Wi-Fi only Xperia Z Ultra was recently spotted passing through the FCC, suggesting the new tablet has at least been approved to run in the U.S.
