A Stroke of Genius

Use the Active Pen to write, draw, and tap the touchscreen with effortless precision. With every stroke, the Active Pen captures even the most subtle nuances as you press harder or softer so you can adjust your line. And don't worry about smearing your work as you write, because the touch sensors turn off when the pen is near the screen so you can write normally and comfortably. With two interchangeable tips that simulate common artistic and design materials, Active Pen lets you imbue your work with a unique artistic edge.

More Brilliant Color than Ever

Backed by Sony TV technology, the 11.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) touchscreen LCD with TRILUMINOS Display for mobile creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors – just the way you want to see them. It's a new-generation technology that makes colors purer and more distinct with a wider color range, giving images a heightened sense of depth. IPS (in-plane switching) technology lets you enjoy a crisp image from any viewing angle and OptiContrast Panel reduces glare – perfect for giving an important presentation or watching the latest blockbuster hit. And with the X-Reality for mobile video quality is vastly improved making that blockbuster hit look even sharper.

With its amazing low-light performance and face tracking technology, the camera automatically adjusts to keep you in focus as you move about.

Coverage You Can Type On
