Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet (with 2K display) mistakenly revealed ahead of MWC 2015
While Sony's Xperia Z4 smartphone might not be introduced in the near future (or at least that's what rumors are suggesting), it looks like we're going to see an Xperia Z4 Tablet at MWC 2015 next week.

Sony mistakenly revealed the Z4 Tablet in its official Xperia Lounge application, though it quickly removed any evidence of the slate's existence.

Fortunately, XperiaBlog saved a couple of screenshots, which show that the Z4 Tablet will be extremely thin, sporting a "2K" display (probably with 1440 x 2560, or 1600 x 2560 pixels). Sony is mentioning that the slate features "leading battery performance", and "the latest ultra fast processor" (we assume this is a 64-bit, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810).

Not long ago, we heard that the Z4 Tablet's display would be a 10.1-inch one. Other features should include 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of expandable internal memory, and Android 5.0 Lollipop. Like Sony's previous slates (including the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and the Xperia Z2 Tablet), the Z4 Tablet will most likely be dust- and water-resistant.

It seems that Sony plans to announce the Z4 Tablet on March 3 (on the second day of MWC 2015), though we might see the device in the flesh a bit earlier. Of course, it's rather weird for Sony to unveil the Z4 Tablet before the Xperia Z4 smartphone, but it seems that this is how things will go anyway.

I'd buy it whatever it ran. Although I am hoping that it runs Lollipop, because I really want to see how bad Sony makes it look. They did it with JB and KK, there's no reason that they wouldn't ruin it.

You bet. Better UI, better software support and more accessories for it. Seems logical.

Agree. They could just run windows with pressure sensitive screen from wacom.

Uh, yes... The vast majority of the world's pc's are running Windows. And soon Windows will be the same, no matter the device.

They won't be the same. Just developers will be able to develope apps for all platforms with less effort

Looks the same as the Xperia Z3 but slimmer. I really do love Sony as much as I do Samsung but come on Sony, do something interesting with your designs. Nice tablet, would prefer it over the Nexus 9.

Every time I see one of their devices I think to myself "Again". Their design language is getting a bit long in the tooth.

They've been using the same designs for the past two years. A welcomed change would be nice.

The Z3 was a greatly designed phone, the rounded bezels and the slim profile was a huge improvement over the Z2. If the Z4 had the same design but with slimmer bezels, then i have no doubt about it being one of the best looking phones in 2015.
p.s: just saw the leaked promos of the M9 on GSMARENA, and oh boy, HTC just screwed themselves over, just as previous leaks showed, the phone looks identically the same as the m8.

They should include new Wacom battery-powered pen, then they have my money.

The tablet looks gorgeous but I agree with what the Verge said..

Sony should sell everything else and only keep the playstation brand.

Yep, the thinness of it seems similar, tho It has no rounded corners, and the design used is similar to the Z3.

If the Z4 looks anything like this... guess all the rumors about Sony content on selling their mobile division is correct. The Z line was in serious need of a redesign.

Initially I was very disappointed because they didn't want to take advantage of all the technology at their disposal, but when I stopped thinking as a fanboy.
I realized that their products don't disappoint me at all, my Z3 is more than enough to serve all my needs.

I probably would not buy a Z4, because I'm sure Z3 is still very good for 1 or even 2 years but I will surely buy their tablet.

"Of course, it's rather weird for Sony to unveil the Z4 Tablet before the Xperia Z4 smartphone, but it seems that this is how things will go anyway".
What's weird about it? The Z4 Tablet replaces the Z2 Tablet, which is one year old. The Z3 smartphone is only 6 months old and not in need for such a fast replacement. Is there a rule that smartphones are default products on which tablets are based on?

The Z3 compact Tablet looks nothing like the Z3 and was released months after. Surely that's a sign that the naming is just marketing .

Still its based on the z3 as it has rounded edges and the sides are rounded as well. The z3tc is just to thin to get the same sides. Same was with the z2t but that one was imo much better looking than the z2 phone. With the z3 line it's the other way around

Very nice love the Sony 10.1" tablets. 32gb aswell let's hope no 16gb version as most retailers only seem to stock the lower gb versions of Android tablets.

A good alternative to iPads as the global shares of tablets are declining in favor of phablets they must do something interesting this time.

The design is probably good id its like the z3tc. The sides do look like it but the z2t was the best looking tablet imo. But it's time to sell i guess.

2560x1440 display is enough for now, in my opinion 3860x2160 which means UHD display sounds good but I'm still glad it didn't happen for this because it eats battery life time.... Fpr televisions or PC:s UHD display will be good option but not for smartphones or Tablets.....

I don't care if there is 16GB or 32GB if there is Micro SD card slot for up to 128GB or 256GB then I'm okay with internal memory.... I hope for better battery time than Z2 or Z3 compacts tablets

I will purchase for this one, I'm sure of it because of 64-bit processor
