Samsung will need to shift from relentlessly chasing Apple to simultaneously defending its smartphone userbase, analysts have warned, with the Korean company facing an unexpected challenge from Sony in what has so far been a European stronghold. Samsung devices now make up almost half of all smartphones sold in Europe, according to Kantar Worldpanel ComTech figures, the Telegraph reports, but Sony's Xperia Z mounted a surprise attack of sorts, with a significant percentage of Samsung Galaxy S II owners opting to upgrade to Sony's flagship in the UK, rather than the Galaxy S 4.

Xperia Z Ultra screenshots tip 6.21-inch display, Snapdragon 800 [UPDATED]

It's not every day a smartphone as massive as the Sony Xperia Z Ultra comes around, especially one with a processor that's only thus far been seen in developer testing devices (and the occasional ZTE device.)
