In-the-wild image of Sony Xperia Z4 tablet leak along with mid-range handset



Sony might be in the midst of spinning off its mobile business, but that doesn’t mean the company is pressing pause on bringing us new gear in 2015. After a quiet showing at CES, the company looks to have at least a couple of devices in tap for MWC, including what might be considered the official followup to the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet.

While last year brought us the Xperia Z3 Compact Tablet, the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is the company’s first full-sized offering since the Z2. It looks to feature the same sleek Sony design we have come to expect, and this includes an ultra-thin profile. We see it in-the-wild for the first time thanks to a leak presented by XperiaBlog.

Rumored specs include a 5.2-inch 720p display, 13MP camera, Snapdragon 610 SoC, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. As the Aqua name implies, Sony’s penchant for waterproofing their devices will carry over to this mid-range smartphone.

We’ll definitely be seeing a lot more of these devices come next week. Stay tuned for hands-on coverage and more.

  1. “It looks to feature the same sleek Sony design we have come to expect…”

    Black and rectangular?

  2. Sony really needs somebody to revamp their user interface. Those icons have been and still are horrid. So many things about the current Sony UI just isn’t appealing.

    1. Yeah I think the fact that they’re not putting as much resources into their mobile business is part of the reason for their apparent UI stagnation. It sucks. I don’t like the idea of Sony not playing a major role in the mobile market.

    2. Icons are easily changeable.

  3. Offering waterproof features to a mid range is pretty awesome of Sony. I’ll hold off further judgment until I see a price.

  4. Be-bezeled!

  5. those are some large bezels. I dont mind them on tablets tho, it makes it a bit easier to actually hold.

  6. Optimize it for Sony music, movies, and Playstation games. And call it PLAYSTATION TABLET. There, Sony. You just doubled your sales. Now you can reconsider that mousy idea to spin off your mobile business.

  7. I checked out the original Z tablet over 2 years ago in a Sony store, and the 10-incher felt solid and substantial in my hands–despite being even thinner than the 7-inch iPad Mini. Sony definitely knows how to build things well. I wasn’t in the market for a tablet back then, but I might consider this newest iteration, especially with the waterproofing and predicted segment-leading battery life.

  8. Still the large bezels. I hoped after the very impressive Z3 Tablet Compact, that the next 10 incher would follow suit with slim bezels. Unless this leak is just the Z2 with a leak of Lollipop…

    1. People need to stop whining about bezels

  9. Sony is becoming irrelevant.

  10. Sigh I hope Sony’s flagship phone is not a disappointment…

  11. Good to see smaller bezels, will probably get one of these depending on its battery life.
