We’ve already spent some time with the Sony Xperia Tablet S, but now it’s time to look forward to the rumored Xperia Tablet Z. Whispers of this particular tablet have been around for a while now, but today, we’re getting some details on the hardware this new slate will ship with. The information comes from the Xperia Info Twitter account, which pegs the tablet with a codename of “Pollux.”
We’re also hearing that the new tablet from Sony will sport a 10.1-inch screen displaying at 1920×1080 resolution, so we’ll be working with full HD on the Xperia Tablet Z. With a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 pro processor and 2GB of RAM under the hood, the Xperia Tablet Z should be at least relatively speedy. Users will have 32GB of internal storage to take advantage of, and the claim that the Xperia Tablet Z will be waterproof and dustproof is sure to get those who like to spend their time outdoors excited.
The tablet has been tipped to use a beefy 6,000mAh battery, along with a 8.1MP camera around the back and a 2.2MP camera on front. In terms of wireless connectivity, potential users can expect Wi-fi a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0, and NFC capabilities. Finally, this latest rumor tells us that the Xperia Tablet Z will be running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and will come ready to take advantage of LTE networks.
Unsurprisingly, Xperia Info also says that the Tablet Z will sport a design similar to that of the Xperia Z smartphone, which seems like a given. Keep in mind that none of these specifications have been confirmed, so it’s possible that we’re all being taken for a ride. Then again, it’s possible that the entire list is correct, so now we wait for Sony to make an official announcement. We’ve been hearing that Sony is aiming to launch the tablet in the second half of 2013, so that announcement we crave might still be a few months out. Stay tuned.
