Sony has announced the launch of its new Xperia Z4 tablet and it’s one of the lightest and slimmest 10-inch tablets on the market.
In addition to the 10.1-inch, 2k display, the tablet features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit processor, supports LTE connectivity and is also waterproof.
It also has a 6,000mAH battery that Sony is capable of 17 hours of video playback and comes with 32GB of internal storage.
Camera-wise, the Xperia Z4 Tablet has an 8MP sensor on the rear and a 5.1MP wide-angle front camera for video calling or selfies.
Sony’s also focused on improving multimedia performance for the Z4, which includes a surround sound audio effect, and if you plug in headphones the tablet senses what type or style of headphones they are and automatically adjusts the settings to suit.
It also supports noise cancellation so if you are on Skype or using the tablet for a video call or to make a video, you can block out background interference.
Pricing and release details for the tablet are yet to be confirmed, but we’ll update when we hear more.
