After covering its smartphone bases with the Xperia Z and ZL we’ve talked about so much already, Sony is apparently getting ready to give its Android tablet line-up a boost as well. According to some mysterious tweets, the upcoming 10-incher is going to be quite the upgrade compared with the existing flagship, the Xperia Tablet S.
Dubbed the Xperia Tablet Z and nicknamed “Pollux”, the new slate will supposedly come with a 10.1-inch 1,920 x 1,200 pix res display, a quad-core 1.5 GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU and 2 GB of RAM.
All that’s way cooler than the 9.4-inch 1,280 x 800 touchscreen, 1.3 GHz Tegra 3 SoC and 1 GB of RAM of the Tablet S, but the step-ups don’t stop there. If today’s leak is to be trusted, Sony’s next spearhead is also going to boost the software from Android 4.0 ICS to 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, the front-facing camera from 1 to 2.2 MP and add in some new high-end connectivity options, like NFC and LTE.
To wrap it all up with a nice bow, Sony will be equipping the Tablet Z with 32 GB of internal memory, a 6,000 mAh battery, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0. No words on pricing yet, but the 10-incher is said to come in Q2 2013, so it shouldn’t be long until we’ll find out more about it.
