Sony Togari might be called Xperia ZU. Xperia Z Google Edition confirmed

Sony’s first phablet, currently codenamed Togari, could end up being officially called Xperia ZU. In fact, according to VR-Zone, an insider has confirmed that this would be the device’s final name.

The same insider has also revealed some new details about the Xperia ZU. As previously reported, the phablet sports a massive 6.4 inch Full HD display. And it looks like it’s going to be IP58-certified (like the 4.5 inch Xperia ZR), thus being waterproof and dustproof. Moreover, the rear camera of the ZU should be an 8MP one, because of a 13MP module shortage. A quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor should power the device.

Sony might announce the Togari / Xperia ZU on June 25. There is no word on when we’ll be able to buy it though.

Update: a photo that may show the Xperia ZU has appeared somewhere in China (via Esato):

In other Sony news, Android Central is confirming that an Xperia Z Google Edition (with stock Android Jelly Bean) is indeed coming soon. It will be sold in the US via Google Play, but it’s not clear for what price, and neither exactly when it’s going to happen.
