Sony Xperia XZ2 Tablets To Launch Soon
Sony has not launched a flagship tablet since 2015. Most of the brands have been doing the same, due to decreasing tablet sales number. However, Sony might reconsider its decision on the same, by launching a flagship tablet in 2018. According to a report, the teardown of Sony’s camera app has hinted towards two tablets from the Japanese smartphone maker. The company is most likely to launch an 8 inch and a 10 inch tablet. These devices might launch under the Xperia XZ2 moniker, which was launched at MWC 2018.
Sony is expected to launch these tablets in the summer of 2018 along with the Xperia XZ2 Pro. The Xperia XZ2 Pro is expected to be the most premium offering from the company, which might have a 4K resolution display with flagship class hardware. Apart from Huawei and Samsung, not many smartphone makers have launched premium Android-powered tablets in the recent past. This is mainly because Apple has been dominating the tablet industry with its iPad lineup. In fact, Apple has a 23% market share in the tablet industry.
Sony Xperia Xz2 tablet Specs
The leak does not mention any specifications. However, going by the flagship device standards, it is likely to launch a device with at least 1080p resolution. Under the hood, the device is likely to be powered by a Snapdragon 800 series processor. Additionally, we might see different variants of these tablets with Wi-Fi or LTE capabilities.
As this leak was seen on camera application, the devices are likely to have a camera similar to the Sony Xperia XZ2. If that so, this could be the first tablet to support slow motion 960fps video recording. However, considering this as a tablet, these devices will have a mediocre camera and a massive battery, which can last for a complete day or two. These tablets are likely to run on Android 8 Oreo.
