Sony's Xperia Z4 Tablet (with 2K display) mistakenly revealed ahead of MWC 2015

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.
