Sony accidentally leaks possible compact tablet and new smart watch

sony smartwatch tablet compact leaked

We’re not sure if Sony has some of the world’s most untrained interns or if they decided some of the best marketing they can do is to leak their own products, but yet another announcement may have been spoiled ahead of their IFA conference next week. In a “Street Smart Summer School” promotion they’re hosting on Facebook to educate folks on on the SmartBand, the company accidentally posted an image of what appears to be a small tablet, as well as a smart watch that may or may not be the rumored SmartWatch 3. The image has since been removed.

The former device has been leaked in recent weeks as the Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact, with rumors telling us to expect a small form factor that was popularized by tablets such as the Nexus 7 and the LG G Pad 8.0. Highlights of its specs are said to be a Snapdragon 801 chipset, 3GB of RAM and an 8 megapixel Exmor R camera sensor. We’re not yet sure what else to expect from the device, though we imagine it’ll come in within that typical 7-8 inch range and sport HD resolution.

On the side of the smart watch? We’re just as clueless, though we know it likely won’t be an Android Wear smart watch as Sony has said time and time again that they instead wish to focus on their own platform (which should still be based on Android at the very least). It won’t be long before we’re doused with all the goodness we’re waiting for, so circle back around August 3rd next week when all of this information is scheduled to spill out.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

    “so circle back around August 3rd next week when all of this information is scheduled to spill out.”

    You mean September 3rd? lol

    Also of note: If the photo is of the Z3 Compact Tablet, it appears to carry the water resistance that the Z2 Tablet carries.
