in Rumours, Sony Tablet, Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series


Xperia Z4 TabletWell no surprises that the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet will support PS4 Remote Play, but if you had any doubts Sony has confirmed it in their latest MWC tease with the words: “Bigger, sharper, brighter…become immersed like never before.” Note the word “bigger” – could this be the 12-inch tablet that has been previously rumoured? We’ll know for sure in just a couple of days.


Xperia Z4 Tablet

Thanks François!

    “Bigger”? 12″ then.

    sd 810. 2k display. better speakers. bigger display.

    the main problem is the sd810 as it overheating+quad hd display

    i want to see the heat issues and battery drain

  • Timel

    PS4 remote? Of course why not but who care? Samsung GALAXY Tab S have multi windows feature which is very useful, much useful than the ridiculous PS4 remote.

  • Timel

    PS4 remote play? Of course why not but who cares?

    People will get the new gen Samsung GALAXY Tab S which have useful feature like multi windows whatever! PS4 remote play is just ridiculous!

  • mUSICA

    wen u watch movies do u play games at the same time? so whats the use of multitask?

  • SUL

    Will the event be live streamed ? Any link?

  • roeshak

    How do you know the specs. The only thing we know from the xperia lounge leak is the 2k display. Nothing else about the specs is known.

  • roeshak

    Ps4 remote play? That’s pretty much a given. Sony seems to be drawing attention to already released features. Nothing new?

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    We have small apps that are great for all the multitasking I need atleast I can browse at the same time as being on any app and if I really want a multiwindow feature on my z2 tab I can just get an xposed mod that gives me multiwindow support

  • damian01211

    Idiot.. S810 doesn’t overheat, it was proofed that it doesn’t overheat, it even’s run coller than far as I remember S801 or S805.

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    Im scared the sd 810 will give the z4 features the z2, z2 tablet and z3 series wont be able to have

  • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

    Dude! If TabZ4 is 12″….damn, that’s definitely will be the device to get on 2015

  • inspire

    Actually, multi window support is good to have.
    Imagine you have to copy sth from browser into email then it’s much easier to do side-by-side or you want to translate sth then browser and translator can work on the same view or you are drawing sth and you have to refer it from doc/pdf/email/browser and so on… So multi window actually makes sense for tablets at least, as it can give you max utilization of big screen and then the tablet is not just a big mobile.
    Hope Sony does that :)

  • 3rdflyleaf

    Small apps, not two screens, not 3 screens, but more screens.

  • zeoxzy

    Not if you have a ps4

  • Andy

    “Bigger”, as in bigger than the Z3 Tablet Compact? 2560*1600 on 12” will be almost a low-res display…

  • inspire

    Small apps are there and they get to do some work but small apps are not there for all apps and as I explained above it will bring more utilization to a big screen with multi-app support / or running 2 apps on same view.

  • getebola

    if only ps4 remote play was inside xperia lollipop..
    l know it wont be but right now my z1 cant even do that. way to exclude people using your brand. tbh dont feel like buying another sony with this support.

  • RealityCheck2015

    Sounds cool ;) But you can’t beat playing the BRILLIANT PS4 on a big SONY(of course) :D HD TV :P :P :P

  • Shawkat alam

    I think they will name it z3 tablet ultra, because it follows the same design language of z3 series

  • Devashish Shukla

    the sd10 from the leaked screenshot of dual

  • Shaik Ilyas

    Sony is testing my(ours) patience. They have time to post the old features that we already know. But they don’t have time to inform anything about lollipop update.

    Atleast I(we) should hear about the news ETA of lollipop update for all Z devices. That too some clear dates or time, not like next month or early and so on.

  • roeshak

    That’s a leaked screenshot of a device still in development. This is a final product. The two correlate in no way at all!

  • Devashish Shukla

    yo re idiot see the g flex 2 it overheats with sd10
    and before a month ago qualcom said samsung that the sd10 has overheats issues and said it will be redesign

  • Devashish Shukla

    i bet you sony will use sd10 in latest z4 series

  • Devashish Shukla

    and dont believe qualcom they are just saving their billions of loss and reputation

  • I have a PS4 and an Xperia Z3 and Remote Play is just plain useless. Laggy, low resolution and has a whole lot of audio and video delay. I used it once only and never had to again.

  • roeshak

    My guess is if Sony was ready with the 810 now we would be seeing the z4 unveiled at mwc.

  • damian01211

    LG G Flex 2 doesn’t have overheating problems, even LG stated that they solve overheating problems, who said? Qualcomm or Samsung as your grammar is really bad.. Use some punctation please ;) Also as I told, do some research before you talk as it was proofed that S810 has no issues with overheating and it does run cooler that S805..
    Samsung let rumors about overheating S810 to let know people that their chip is better!

  • rvjaywaks

    Because of your network router is fucking slow dont blame other thing.

  • Kaarthikeyan Swaminathan

    Look who is commenting about grammar.

  • xperiafan324

    I was really hoping that their 12″ would’ve been 4k though, JDI also made thus amazing 12.1″ LTPS 4k screen with super low battery consumption and hugh brightness. S810 is supposed to be powerful enough, eh Sony’s probablh going with the 2k cause of supply and cost I guess.

  • xperiafan324

    Even the LG G3 overheats, far as I’ve heard the new Mi Note doesn’t overheat and that runs an s810. I like LG, but they need to sort out the heat dissipation in their devices.
    Besides those were only rumors with Samsung’s GS6, remember that Samsung is using a new glass metal glass design so their heat dissipation is bound to be worse (glass is a bad conductor, plastic while also bad is usually thinner so it doesn’t entrap the heat) and it’s supposed to be iphone 6 thin (again moee dense internals means poorer dissipation) and moreover we don’t know what clocks Samsung was trying the s810 at, but historically they try to push it as high as possible and that is bound to cause overheating in such a device.

  • Fatal1ty_93_RUS

    I don’t it’s efficient to put 4k resolutions in mobile devices right now, 2k will be more than enough. Heck, I would’ve been totally fine if Sony put 1080p screen in TabZ4 – I had a 720p 15″ laptop for several years and had no problem with it whatsoever

  • xperiafan324

    Sony is cutting back on its Employed Capital in the Xperia division (i.e. scaling back costs to mitigate risk), that’s why you won’t see two xperia flagships this year, Sony has smartened up, one flagship will cost much less in R&D, and they’ll have a bigger budget for marketing.

  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    My current laptop is 900p, and heck I do more work on it than my 1080p phone or TV.

    Ofc, I’d be one of the people ok with 1080p.

  • xperiafan324

    I wouldn’t call 251 ppi low-res for a 12″ screen, but yeah I was also hoping for that sumptious 4k JDI screen.

  • xperiafan324

    So you’re afraid that a new phone would do something that the old phones aren’t capable of? Then I guess you’re quite justified as that is EXACTLY what’s going to happen. It’s called progress bro, get with the program.

  • xperiafan324

    Yeah it’s definitely not a deal breaker, it’ll probably be the best tablet screen in the industry as it is a Sony, but still would’ve been cool to have those bragging rights. ;-)
    Battery consumption was supposed to be quite frugal for that 4k panel, it was supposed to be as low as 2k panels of similar size
    http://www.j-display.com/english/news/2013/20131023_2.html

    But yeah, it probably wouldn’t have been this thin with a 4k screen. So that’s definitely a reason for using 2k.

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    No its not that its the fact I recently got a z2 and the z4 will have loads more features like when the z ultra or z1 or z couldnt get timeshift video

  • Ryan Kumar-jassi

    If you follow this link try installing the apk first if it dont work youll need root but thats not to difficult to get

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    True dat. But there are some obvious, and great advantages being a blue to tether your mobile devices to a gaming console.

    Sony should advertise this feature with their mobile devices more often. In the US the only Sony commercials on TV are the PS4. Sony is known mainly for their PS4 here, but show off your Xperia phone or tablet bring able to stream games, and that’ll get even more attention.

  • Eduardo Otero

    Then is it the Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra???

    PS4 remote play is a good feature But sony should add more useful feature like multi windows to their flagship phones and tablets as well

    Feature like multi windows is something that costumers want and Sony’s small app is just ridiculous!

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Agreed, the small apps aren’t the best apps. But I rarely use multi window on my G3. Plus on a 5.2 inch screen I don’t think it would be too effective. Definitely a feature that should be on their phablets and tablets.

  • Snorky112

    no one uses multi window anyway

  • Ballsack

    As I own both PS4 and Z2, the remote play sucks so hard. The reason is it cannot handle 60FPS and this is essential when you play shooting games. They capped the FPS to 30. They should scrap this shit and move on, like releasing the fucking lollipop today, you sony bitch.

  • Andy

    “Bigger” might be the battery.
