The new device that, in addition to the previously described Sony Xperia Z2 phone, attracted the most attention of visitors to the Sony stand on the first day of the MWC, is the successor to the original Xperia Z Tablet, the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet model.
Exactly one year after the introduction of its predecessor, Sony brings its customers a worthy successor that has retained all the good features of the original model and further improved those areas where it is necessary to remain at the very top of the Android tablet range.
Xperia Z2 Tablet Features
Like its predecessor, the Xperia Z2 Tablet has a certificate that guarantees its resistance to water and dust (IP58), scratch-resistant panels on the front and back, a 10.1-inch FullHD (1920 x 1200 pixels) screen in which built-in the latest Sony technology for better display of content on it (X-Reality mobile picture engine, as Sony, calls it) and all this without increasing the old dimensions of 266 x 172 x 6.4 mm (more precisely, they managed to reduce the thickness by 0.5 mm).
The backbone of the interior consists of a powerful Snapdragon 800 processor whose four cores run at 2.3GHz, Adreno 330 graphics chip, 3GB of RAM, and 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via microSD memory cards up to 64GB. The latest version of Android 4.4.2 (KitKat), which is covered with Sony’s already recognizable graphical interface, also ensures that everything works quickly and fluidly.
The resolutions of the main and auxiliary cameras remained unchanged, and they are 8MP for the main and 2.2MP for the auxiliary, with the difference that the main camera received the latest (improved) Exmor RS sensor, so we can expect slightly better photos and videos compared to last year’s model. It is important to note that both cameras have recording capabilities in 1080p resolution with support for the HDR option.
Xperia Z2 Tablet Conclusion
With a refreshed chipset, an improved camera, reduced thickness, and its distinctive design, Sony sovereignly rule when it comes to the 10-inch Android tablet market. With the retention of all that was good on the original model, when we mention it primarily mean the resistance of the device to water and dust, excellent battery, and excellent design of the case, Sony did not need much effort to make a tablet device that has at least the intended success as in the past model.
And since they did a great job, I can rightly hope that this success and sales will be surpassed. What is more important to point out with this model is that it will be offered in two colors, black and white, as well as a version that only supports WiFi connection and one that will have the ability to use 4G / LTE networks in addition to the same.
