Mobile phone maker Sony has unveiled a new high-end smart phone which it claims is the thinnest ever made.

The Xperia Z Ultra is a mere 6.5mm in depth and has a large 6.4" full-HD screen.

It is also waterproof to a depth of 1.5m, for up to 30 minutes.

The phablet was unveiled at the Mobile Asia Expo.

It has a feature to allow the user to sketch on the screen using a pencil or a selected stylus or pen.

It also contains the world's fastest smart phone processor, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800.

The 4G-enabled handset will go on sale in Ireland in August.
