Sony Xperia Z Ultra and LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Editions Announced

OPPO Reno12 Series 5G Coming Soon

Android users sometimes prefer the pure version of the OS, without the modifications and customizations.   I, for one, prefer vanilla Android.  When Google offered the Google Play Editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One, many Android fans welcomed the move.  There are Nexus devices for those who want pure Android but some people simply prefer devices from other manufacturers.

Google recently announced Google Play Editions of bigger devices, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and the LG G Pad 8.3.  The Xperia Z Ultra is a phablet by classification but it’s actually a tablet in size considering it has a 6.4-inch display.   It’s therefore safe to assume that Google wants to cover all bases by offering Google Play Editions of tablets after doing it for smartphones.


For pricing, the  Xperia Z Ultra is available for $650 while the LG G Pad 8.3 is priced at $350.  The specs of these devices are the same as those of the original versions.  For now, the Sony Xperia Z Ultra and LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play Editions are only available in the US and can be purchased from the Google Play Store. is one of the most active tech sites in the Philippines.
