Sony are primarily known for their smartphones and laptops, but over the last few years they have been growing in the tablet market, and at this years MWC they have just announced the launch of the Xperia Z4 tablet.
The Xperia Z4 tablet is Sony’s flagship tablet, and the first of 2015’s high end Android tablets. Inside the Z4 there is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 SoC, which has four Cortex-A57 cores and four Cortex-A53 cores running at 2.0GHz and 1.6GHz respectively, along with Qualcomm’s new Adreno 430 GPU. The internal battery remains the same capacity as the Z2 Tablet at 6000mAh (22.8Wh), but the tablet has been slimmed down to 6.1mm which puts it on par with Apple’s iPad Air 2.
Moving to the outside of the tablet, Sony has placed an 8MP camera on the rear, and a 5.1MP camera on the front. The front of the device is also home to the 10.1″ 2560×1440 LCD display. Like many of Sony’s recent devices, the Z4 Tablet is both dust and water resistant.
