Sony appears to be going to make another new tab in the Xperia range, a smaller more compact version of the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet, the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Eagle eyed fans have spotted the device named in an official document released by Sony.
The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact was spotted in official documentation for the Sony BSC10 Bluetooth speaker. The user manual clearly states that the speaker is compatible with the Tablet Compact, although there isn’t any mention of a non-compact model in the guide.

Speculation has it that since there is no specific mention of screen size in the user guide, the Tablet Compact could be more than just a smaller size, it could be a slimmer model as well. Sony has been a driving force behind super slim tablets for a while now.
If the Tablet Compact has the same internal components as the upcoming Xperia Z3 smartphone, we could expect to see a 2.7GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor combined with 3GB of RAM. Additionally, a high resolution screen could be on the cards, as speculation has it that since Sony is also pushing 4K UHD TVs, it would make sense for 4K content to be recorded and viewed on new smartphones and phablets.

The smartphone version of the Sony Xperia Z3 has been leaked many times, with recent photos showing off the device and its Mini version. This means the entire range of Xperia Z3 models includes a phone, mini phone, tablet and compact tablet. Rumor of a 20.7MP camera has also been spreading, which would also back up 4K video rumors.
An additional leak has also speculated that the Xperia Z3 range may also feature a metal edge band, similar to the new iPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy Alpha.
More information will probably be released at the IFA trade show on September the 4th, where a multitude of tech companies will shortly preview a massive quantity of new devices. Samsung are also expected to unveil new wearables and phones at the IFA as well as Sony.
