Following yesterday’s spec leak, an image of the Sony Xperia Z2 tablet has appeared on the internet.
The original Sony Xperia Tablet Z was released in May 2013, when its slim design and strong performance drew widespread praise.
As you can see, it appears to be very similar to the original Xperia Z2 tablet, with a familiar sharp-cornered design. It also appears to be running Android 4.4 KitKat.
This leak follows yesterday’s spec spill from the same source. Apparently, the Z2 tablet will run on a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 3GB of RAM.
It’s said to run on the same 10.1-inch 1920 x 1200p resolution display as its predecessor, which is a bit of a shame, as that wasn’t the sharpest tablet in town even nine months ago.
More impressive is the suggestion that Sony has managed to slice some meat away from its already skinny body – it’s down from 6.9mm to just 6.4mm thick.
Expect 16GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for expansion purposes. We should also see a 8-megapixel camera around back, along with a 2-megapixel front-facing unit, which sounds like another area in which it matches the original.
The Xperia Z2 tablet should run on a 6000mAh battery, and it’s claimed that the tablet will retain its water and dust-resistant properties.
It’s looking like a moderate spruce up of Sony’s flagship tablet, then, but we’ll know for sure at next week’s official unveiling.
