Yes, but it Tegra K1 is not a option. At least the S805!
It's a tablet, it should have more than enough thermal room for it.

The Shield Tablet is a similarly sized mini tablet, and has the K1 and with no thermal/battery issues according reviews, including AnandTech who are typically somewhat Apple biased

So Sony's design/engineering team should be able to make a tablet with the K1 as well

Its probably a cost issue, the Snapdragons (specially the older 801) are probably much cheaper than the K1

specs are impressive... but triluminos again? we have seen in xperia z1 and z that triluminos sucks as compared to ips

The screen used in z and z1 is TFT triluminous is a just a technology where you have a wider range of colours. It's not the type of display used.

So do the performance go. Go compare some of Galaxy tablets with Qhd display to Z2 tablet in terms of performance and you will see the slight stutter.

it's all numbers game these days and you know that.
Whether it greatly affects the performance or not, consumers could care less about it.

QHD.> 1080p

Marketing 101,

the greater the better

Its a slight upgrade from 1080p to QHD. Its barely unrecognizable. Plus having a QHD display takes more battery life. For me 1080p is enough to watch movies and last all day than a QHD that will last barely half a day.

Read : 8 inches

not 5.5 inches

the difference is significant.

Premium tablet = Premium Specs

1080p is completely inexcusable for a tablet of that caliber

Did I even say 5.5 inches? Whered you come up with that?

you simply cannot comprehend.
it's a tablet

a tablet not a phone!

it is not "barely unrecognizable"

coz it's a tablet

a tablet!

275ppi vs 367ppi if it were QHD!

does the huge difference look insignificant to you?

gtfo, and get an eye check up

I agree, QHD is not needed on anything smaller then a 10" tablet and even then your talking more like 13" for a laptop screen before the difference is visible. ok if you are one of the sad people who look at the screen through a microscope at the display it is barely recognisable, and the simple fact is that I have QHD laptop and both my mobiles have 1080p and QHD and the difference is hardley noticable, maybe if i have proper 2k content encoded properly then it might be different but the content i have looks almost identical on ALL the devices

"QHD is not needed on anything smaller then a 10" tablet and even then your talking more like 13" for a laptop screen before the difference is visible."

Many people have better vision than you do. So for them, it is quite noticeable.

For instance, I notice a huge difference between 1920x1080p and 2560x1600p on a ~8" tablet. That's a lot of pixels you don't get with plain FHD.

Both the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 8.4 and the TabPro 8.4 offer this high resolution and it's awesome, especially for text.

One of my notebook computers is 15.6" and 2880x1620p (FHD @ 150%) and it's very nice. Much clearer than FHD. Personally, I would never go back to low resolution grainy screens.

Damn, if they put the radio/call function into this, and made it QHD, THIS would have been your Xperia Z Ultra 2!

I believe that sony is trying to lower their cost, the construction has simplified from z1 ( which was famous for gaps), the z2, and new one z3 which is simplest and least complex, while achieving slightly more space for bigger battery and screen

the have been doing this for years on TV's, ps3/ps2, psp and ps vita and cameras with minor revisions
