MWC 2015: Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet: super-thin, super-fast, waterproof

MWC 2015: Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet: super-thin, super-fast, waterproof

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 might’ve launched yesterday, but one thing we’re not expecting from Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 is the Sony Xperia Z4 flagship smartphone.

The Japanese manufacturer has, however, introduced the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet, which proudly claims to be one of the world’s thinnest, at 6.1mm.

The launch of the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet at MWC 2015 is perhaps slightly curious, in the sense that it arrives before the Xperia Z4 smartphone, or indeed any other device under the Z4 banner. Traditionally, the phone has come first.

Having said that, the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet sounds rather delicious, so we’re not complaining.

Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet specs include a 10.1in 2560 x 1600 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB expandable storage, 8MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, stereo speakers, optional LTE connectivity, Android Lollipop 5.0, and a 6,000mAh battery that Sony says is good for 17 hours of video playback.

Again, the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet’s claim to fame is being one of the thinnest tablets on the market. I’m reading “world’s thinnest” on some sites, though the Xperia Z4 tablet appears to be the same thickness as the 6.1mm Dell Venue 8 7000 and iPad Air 2.

In any case, the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet also offers IP68-certified resistance to dust and water, happily chilling in up to 1m of water for up to 30 minutes.

Fancy it? You’ll have to wait till June for the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet release date (ouch), and while there’s no mention of regional availability, the UK seems like a pretty safe bet. Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet price is similarly mysterious.

Sounds pretty good, right?
