0_Xperia_Z2_Tablet_colourrangeSony Mobile has revealed the Xperia Z2 Tablet at MWC 2014. The successor to the Xperia Tablet Z has some big shoes to fill, especially considering that the Xperia Tablet Z won widespread critic and consumer praise since its launch last year. Sony has recognised this and hasn’t fundamentally altered the OmniBalance design and provides what may seem, on the face of it at least, iterative improvements over last year’s model.

Sony says this is the world’s slimmest (6.4mm) and lightest (426g for Wi-Fi; 439g for LTE/3G) waterproof tablet, which sounds like an extraordinary feat of engineering. The Xperia Z2 Tablet features a 10.1-inch (1920 x 1200) TRILUMINOS Phosphor LED display with Live Colour LED technology, providing deep colours without the risk of oversaturation.

The tablet is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset (2.3GHz quad-core processor and Adreno 330 graphics) and 3GB RAM. Other features include a 8.1MP Exmor RS rear camera, 2.2MP Exmor R front camera, microSD memory card slot, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac), ANT+, MHL, NFC and IP55/IP58 dust and water resistance.

The Xperia Z2 Tablet has front-facing stereo speakers, much like the Xperia Z2. These speakers help to deliver dynamic sound at over 100 DB, with the help of S-Force Front Surround audio technology. It also includes digital noise cancelling technology, reducing ambient noise by up to 98% with the use of the Sony MDR-NC31EM headset.

The tablet comes with a 6000mAh battery (same as the Xperia Tablet Z), good for 13 hours of video playback. Sony says the Xperia Z2 Tablet features integrated Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology, which should enable you to charge it 75% faster than devices without fast charging tech.

The Xperia Z2 Tablet will be available in a LTE/4G model with 16GB internal storage and a Wi-Fi-only model with 16GB and 32GB storage options. It will launch in black and white colours with Android 4.4 KitKat from March 2014 globally.

    It is NOT Qualcomm S801?????? S801 is MSM8974AC with support to eMMC5.0?? Xperia Z2 and Z2 tablet use S800 (MSM8974AB)

  • Anon

    Their website has the GPU listed as Adreno 320, could be a mistake but at £499 I think I’ll pass on this one!

    After using Tablet Z for almost a year now, I agree completely. This looks to have about the same size bezels but is thinner and lighter, which sounds perfect to me :)

  • Vitali

    I have a question, so the newer Xperias have this ” Magnetic connector ” right ? What if the mobile was charging witH a magnetic connector and we connect a HDD via USB OTG, will it power up and be able to transfer data ?

  • GEM
