Apart from the flagship Android smartphone Z2, Sony has announced at MWC 2014 the Xperia Z2 tablet which, yes, comes with the same name. Going past the confusion and taking a look at the actual device, the Sony Z2 tablet has a very slim body, and a gorgeous full HD 10-inch Live Color LED screen. Sony has not neglected the hardware side of the tablet, equipping it with a very powerful CPU and RAM to go around.
Keeping to the theme, the tablet certainly feels like a scaled-up Z2 smartphone, and like its smaller brother, the body of the tablet is waterproof. The gorgeous display easily outpaces most other devices and thanks to its powerful components, it can satisfy pretty much any user out there.
Sony Z2 Tablet Specs
Sony has equipped the device with the best parts they could find, both the Z2 smartphone and the Z2 tablet are very powerful, but at the same time they are stylish. This is a really, really thin tablet at only 6.4 mm; if you recall, the Xperia Z1 was already thin enough, at 6.9 mm. We don’t know yet its price, but don’t expect for it to be “affordable”. Rumor has it, though, that it will retail for around $500. The main tech specs of the Z2 tablet are as follows:
- 10.1-inch Triluminos display with X-Reality technology
- 8 MP back camera with Exmor R5 Sensor
- 3 GB RAM
- Quad-Core Snapdragon 801 CPU
- 6000 mAh battery
- Android 4.4
The tablet will come with Sony’s Front Surround dynamic audio and the ability to pair a DualShock 3 controller to it, amongst others. The Xperia Z2 tablet weighs 439 grams, and can be easily held with just one hand. Sony was well aware that the big display and power-hungry CPU will take a toll on the battery, which is why they decided to go somewhat overboard with it and they’ve equipped the device with a huge 6000 mAh battery. The device will be available starting from March, just like the Z2 smartphone.
