Sony may joins the race of rumors for a bigger size tablets with the latest reports of the possible release of a 12.9-inches Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra. The reports for that are increasing with a new tech specs leak of the possible new device. The Japanese company is set to be side by side with Apple which is also rumored to prepare a 13-inch iPad. For now the tech giant from Cupertino didn’t show off something radically new from its tablet line, but it is speculated that it may launch such device in the coming 2015.
According to the new reports from a Chinese site PadNews.cn Sony may go on the same path with a bigger tablet with launching a full spectrum of devices under the Xperia Z4 brand. The first purported devices were the smartphones Z4, Z4 Compact and the possible phablet Z4 Ultra. Alongside them is the 10.1-inches tablet Z4 Tablet. But the new rumors suggested that it will be a second tablet device and it will not be a Compact version. It will be a 12.9-inches Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra.
Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra tech specs
The speculated tech specs of the new bigger tablet revealed by the Chinese site are really jaw-dropping. The 12.9-inches screen will have 3,840 x 2,400 resolution with 16:10 aspect ratio and this means 4K UltraHD. This is like to have a small TV in your hands. The unusual (for a tablet) aspect ratio and screen resolution is paired with a 6GB of RAM (2x3GB) and a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 processor. The internal storage is 64GB which is almost a standard now in the tablet area.
Also like the latest Sony’s flagship devices the new Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra will have a PS4 Remote Play. Following another tradition is that the new tablet will be extremely thin for its sizes – only 8.6 mm thickness. In this slim body Sony is fitting a massive 12,100 mAh battery inside.
Too good to be true
Everything sounds great. Like a tech geek’s dream are becoming true. Actually the new Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra sounds too great. So there is a big chance these rumors to be fake, but if they aren’t – Sony will pull out a big ace from its sleeve. Also those are not the first rumors for a such device from the Japanese company.
The Japanese company has its motives to put such monstrosity tablet in the market. The bigger screen means better consumption of a video or playing games, especially AAA which will be available via PS4 Remote Play. Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra fits very well in the new Sony’s strategy for more gamer-centric devices.
There are some drawbacks of a such device. Xperia tablets doesn’t come with integrated kickstands like Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 (one of the best examples of a 13-inches tablet segment right now). And the bigger the tablet – more effort is needed to be hold in hands.
Possible reveal dates are the two big electronic show in the early 2015 – CES in Las Vegas in January and MWC in Barcelona in March. But mind that there is no official confirmation from Sony for a such device.
Plausibility for a actual launch of a Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra – 50%
