Sony launched Xperia Z4 Tablet, the world’s thinnest and lightest tablet with a ridiculously long battery life
Traditionally, Mobile World Congress is an event when the most awaited devices are presented to the world. Sometimes unexpected announcements happen like in the case of the Sony Xperia M4 Aqua. We also hoped that the company would unveil the Xperia Z4 at MWC but it appears that the smartphone is missing in action and Sony isn’t saying why. There was, however, a certain Z4 launched in Barcelona. It’s the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet – the world’s thinnest and lightest tablet with a ridiculously long battery life.
Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet with a 6,000 mAh Battery
Compared to its predecessor, the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet brings improvements in almost every aspect. For starters, the device has a 10.1-inch display with a massive QHD (2560 x 1600 pixels) resolution which works out to a pixel density of 299ppi – pretty impressive for a tablet.
Measuring just 6.1mm in thickness the Xperia Z4 Tablet is the slimmest tablet and it’s the lightest too – Wi-Fi model weights just 389 grams and LTE variant comes in at 393 g. It’s less than the iPad Air, though worth noting is the fact that the Z4 Tablet’s body is made of plastic not aluminum. However, it doesn’t mean that construction is poor. On the contrary, the tablet is very durable thanks to IP68 rating for dust and water resistance.
The Xperia Z4 Tablet is a powerful device with a 64-bit octa-core Snapdragon 810 ticking inside along with 3GB of RAM. Such a powerhouse obviously needs a lot of juice to run and Sony took care of that part with a 6,000 mAh battery which is expected to deliver up to 17 hours of video playback time. Moreover, Sony’s STAMINA mode can give you some extra time if you are running low on power. The device also packs 32GB of internal memory, an 8-megapixel main camera, 5-megapixel selfie camera and front stereo speakers.
The Z4 Tablet will hit the stores around the world this summer, in June to be more precise. Pricing is still unknown at this point and most likely will vary depending on the market. We should expect more details as release date approaches.
