Sony today introduced its new tablet 10 inch high range, the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet. All a beast in the specifications which I will detail below.
We have a tablet that has thinned out, uploaded on resolution, which promises a spectacular battery life, which ultimately is presented as the very best that we have in Android tablets.
Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet, design and specifications
Sony doesn’t seem to bet big on their new tablet design changes, but has learned from the past and improving had to date. For example frames reduce 20% against the previous version and the weight 8% is reduced until in 396 grams (LTE) or 392 g (WiFi).
The tablet with water and dust protection is IP68, which will be the satisfaction of its users. We have a tablet with metal frames and rugged plastic on the back, to avoid slip.
In power the tablet is not short. It comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC 810 and 3 GB of RAM. At the moment an unbeatable combination if what we want is power.
The screen is not short. An IPS LCD panel with a 2K resolution (299 ppp, brutal for a tablet) and if the quality is similar to the previous generation are happy to.
The battery is 6000 MAH, the same that in the previous generation, but since Sony promise optimizations that they would reach 17 hours playing video. We have, of course, that prove it in person.
The tablet comes two cameras, sensor, 8-megapixel camera on the back and five on the front with Steady Shot (stabilization of image, autofocus or manual focus). It is not the major point of the tablets, but it’s always good to have a good camera.
The version of Android that will bring this Xperia Z4 Tablet is Android 5.0 Lollipop light Sony customizations. It could not be less given the dates in which we find ourselves.
One of the more interesting news is that when we connect a Bluetooth keyboard or USB to the tablet will launch a specific launcher application open at the bottom and will allow us to resize windows. I.e., we will have a Desktop mode closest to the PC use.
Price and availability
Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet will come in two models, WiFi or WiFi+LTE-A, and 32 GB of storage expandable through microSD. At the moment we don’t have prices nor availability dates even probably in May. We will update as soon as we have news.
