I would say the majority of our readers are Android enthusiasts. What that means is most of you understand and care about specs in the devices you choose to buy. Luckily for us fanatics, Sony announced, an ultra powerhouse, the Xperia Z4 10″ tablet.
First things first, the tablet will arrive with a 2k display for your viewing pleasure, and that will be powered by the new Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64 bit processor. In keeping with tradition, Sony improves upon its design by reducing the weight down to 389g, and reducing the thickness down to a meager 6.1mm, which is 40% thinner than the ball point pen on my desk. To keep things humming along, the Z4 will have 3GB of RAM, and it will have 32GB of on-board storage with the ability to expand memory up to 128GB using the microSD card slot.
The Xperia Z4 tablet will arrive with dual front facing stereo speakers, and on top of that, Sony pushes the development of high quality sound by offering High-Res Audio using DSEE HX which upscales the audio fidelity of digital music tracks. The tablet will also support digital noise cancelling for times when the background noise forces you to increase the volume to levels dangerous to your ears.
The rear facing camera is a standard 8MP, while the front facing camera is a 5.1MP wide-angle shooter, which is great for video calls. The Z4 will also be able to connect to the Playstation 4 using remote play, and to make sure you stay competitive, you’ll be able to use the DUALSHOCK4 controller on your tablet.
For a tablet with a 2K display paird with a Snapdragon 810, you would expect battery life to suffer. Instead, Sony claims an impressive 17 hours of video playback on a single charge.
To round things off, the Xperia Z4 will run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, and like its predecessors, the Z4 is waterproof and dust tight(IP65 and IP68).
On paper, this is quite possibly the best tablet any manufacturer has to offer.
