For over a month we have suspected that Sony might be working on a new tablet. The first indications that the company could be preparing a successor of the Xperia Tablet Z appeared in early January but didn’t provide many details in terms of specs mentioning only a quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC processor. Now, thanks to @evleaks we seem to know a bit more about the tablet. Hopefully, the details will be confirmed during Sony’s MWC 2014 press event.
Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 – What to expect.
Sony’s new tablet possibly will be called Xperia Tablet Z2, which is not that much of a surprise since it is obviously a successor of the Xperia Tablet Z. The measurements of the screen of the Tablet Z2 will remain unchanged; however, unlike its predecessor, it will use Triluminos technology.
Thanks to special light-emitting nanoparticles, the colors are deeper and much more vivid and accurate compared to typical LCD display. Resolution of the Xperia Tablet Z2 is expected to reach 1920 x 1200 pixels.
In his tweet @evleaks suggests that the tablet will be powered by a 2.3 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, which is congruent with previous rumors. The slate should come with 3 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory along with microSD slot for storage expansion.
Two cameras will be present on the Xperia Tablet Z2 with an 8-megapixel shooter residing on the back and a 2-megapixel snapper placed on the front of the device. The slate will come with a 6,000 mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box and, like the previous-generation tablet, will be water-resistant.
Update: Alleged press images of Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 leak out.
