Sony looks set to launch its second Xperia branded Android tablet next month, with reports suggesting that an ‘Xperia Tablet Z’ will be revealed at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
The Japanese company launched the Xperia Tablet S alongside the Xperia S; its first flagship smartphone since dropping the ‘Ericsson’ part of the name. Now that the Xperia S is due to be superseded by the Full HD Xperia Z, it looks as though Sony has a tablet planned to match it.
And match it, it will. Just like the Xperia Z phone, the tablet is rumoured to have a Full HD 1080p display, which is to be 10.1-inches in size. Inside there will be a Qualcomm S4 quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM – just like the phone – and 32GB of inbuilt storage.
Unfortunately Sony won’t be matching the phone in the camera stakes, but you will be getting an 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front facing camera for video calling. There’s also rumoured to be a wealth of connectivity; WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, 4G LTE and GPS.
Finally, although we don’t have much of an idea on how the tablet will look, we know it will be just 6.9mm thin, making it one of the thinnest tablets in the world.
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z is already sounding like a hot prospect, so stay tuned for our MWC coverage next month for the official reveal.
