Sony launched the Xperia Tablet Z, for Europe at least, during last year’s Mobile World Congress show, and it looks like we’ll be getting a sequel during this year’s event. The news of a new tablet comes from an extensive leak, which reveals a tablet referred to as the Xperia Tablet Z2.
Sony’s super-slim slate could be getting even thinner if the information is correct, as the thickness could be just 6.4mm, down from an already svelte 6.9mm on the original. Don’t worry though, the tablet should still be able to hold back the wet stuff, making it suitable for kitchen or bathtime use.
The processor is possibly going to be upgraded from the Snapdragon S4 Pro to a quad-core, 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800, supported by a massive 3GB of RAM. The onboard memory mentioned in the leak is only 16GB, but a microSD card slot will make it easy to increase this figure.
The already impressive 10.1-inch display may not change though, and could still boast the same 1920×1200 pixel resolution. Sony should give the operating system a bump, and Android KitKat should come installed. We’d also expect some more Sony-developed software tweaks over the top.
Sony hasn’t announced a press conference for Mobile World Congress yet, but there’s still a week to go before the show starts, so there’s still time. Will the Xperia Tablet Z2 be the only new product on display, or are we going to be treated to a new smartphone or two as well?
