Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet pictures revealed, white and black versions shown
Shortly after revealing some of the features of Sony’s rumored Xperia Z2 Tablet, @evleaks is now back with what appears to be a press photo of the unannounced device. Given the reliability of the source, we have no reasons to doubt that this is what the new tablet will look like when it hits shelves.

While @evleaks posted only one (frontal) image of the Xperia Z2 Tablet, another Twitter account, namely @gadgetleaks, seems to have more press photos. We can’t verify their authenticity, since this new account doesn’t have tweets older than one day. Still, the images don’t contradict the photo revealed by @evleaks, so they could be genuine.

Overall, the Xperia Z2 Tablet doesn’t look too different from last year’s Xperia Tablet Z. But its features are definitely better, including: Android 4.4 KitKat, a 10.1-inch Triluminos display with 1920 x 1200 pixels, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, 8MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 16GB of expandable internal memory, and a 6,000 mAh battery. The new tablet should be waterproof, with its body being only 6.4mm-thin.

Sony will probably announce the Xperia Z2 Tablet at MWC 2014 next week, when the Japanese company may also unveil its new Xperia Z2 smartphone.

The tablet Z was the best tablet by far when it was released. Amazing design and weight, alongside being waterproof was unheard of in a tablet. It had an amazing display too. But Sony didn't capitalise on its success. No marketing whatsoever. And now the competition has caught up, not completely, but is getting there... This should still be the best tablet of the year until it gets a successor. But I can't help feeling disappointed about the screen resolution...

what do you mean caught up? they can't catch up with the waterproofing but they beat the z with hgher display resolutions, bigger batteries, more power saving features (rgbw screens), and faster updates. sony fan here but we can't be that blind not to see reality.

For 1080p videos, this display should be better. No scaling. For web browsing and reading text, I admit I'm disappointed too. Bigger batteries and rgbw doesn't matter, it's the end result, and the end result of the original was good. For most companies, updates are a change of numbers. Sony genuinely provides loads of new features with its updates. Now, when the Xperia Tablet Z was unrivalled, and this should be even better, is when you hold to use it. It's so light that you can hold it really, really comfortably for extended periods. And to hold it in the kitchen or swimming pool is amazing. The UI is elegant and smooth, that alone is a huge plus over most other tablets. Most people boast amount Nexus tablets, but they don't do much in the way of using all that space.

Wow, much innovation by Sony. Introducing an all new tablet which completely and utterly changes the experience compared to last year's with the all-new latest processor Snapdragon 800.

Yes, lighter, better water resistance, no flap on the headphone jack, a tonne of new software features, thinner. No other manufacturer came close to the original except the iPad Air, which came more than half a year later.

Seriously? What about the new Note 10.1? Better camera, memory, processor, ram, screen, s-pen, totally new UI, all new design(inspired by the note 3's design), and bigger battery.

How do you know it has a better camera? Same question with memory. And the processor is the same... Same question with RAM. New UI doesn't equal to better. Same with the design, which is typically ugly. The lack of software buttons don't help with the design, nor with the usability. The battery doesn't matter, it's the end result, and the original had very good battery life. No one in the world doubts the s-pen isn't useful for some. For others, not so much. If only this used as wacom too - there were rumours of such with at least one Sony tablet this year. At least use the ability of the Z Ultra to register pretty much anything.

I agree on this one. I like bezels on a tablet, but this one gets QUITE A LOT of bezels. Really, it now looks like a picture frame. And please, 6000 mAh battery?

Why shall they change their design when its beautiful? Look at iPhones. They are all like each other with minor changes and no one complains. That's because their design is beautiful and the case is the same with Sony.

It seems like a nice spec bump to keep the device relevant, if not particularly exciting. Now they just need to release an 8 inch version with the same internals.

sony would excite me if they released an 8 or 7 inch tablet instead of this one. guess they haven't fully consumed last year's supplies yet. people please buy them so sony can start using new materials and designs. lol

Bezels are important for tablets. You need the extra space around the screen to securely hold it.

I agree, but we don't need this kind of bezels.
