Rumors about a possible new Sony tablet
have been making the rounds since January. Back then, it was tipped by @evleaks that a slate codenamed "Castor" was in the works, packing a quad-core Snapdragon 800 SoC under its hood. And now, thanks to the very same reliable source, we have a much more complete specs list for this clearly high-end device.
The tablet, which is probably going to be known as the Sony Xperia Tablet Z2, will have a 10.1-inch Triluminos display with a resolution of 1920 by 1200 pixels. A whopping 3GB of RAM should be on board, along with 16GB of storage and a slot for microSD cards. On the back of the slate will be located an 8MP camera and a 2MP snapper will be available for video chit chats. The battery's capacity will stand at 6000mAh, which is actually pretty good considering the fact that the tablet should be only 6.4 millimeters thin. Android 4.4 KitKat is said to be coming pre-loaded on the device. Last but not least, the Sony Xperia Tablet Z2 will be water-resistant, just like last year's Tablet Z.
It goes without saying that the above information should be taken with a grain of salt. Sure, tweets by @evleaks have almost always been reliable, but a rumor is a rumor and should be treated as such. In any case, it is clear that Sony's MWC 2014 press event
is going to be an exciting one.
