Sony Xperia Z4 tablet could be described as the upgraded version of the Xperia Z2 tablet, and rightly so. But this tablet is not only thinner than its predecessor, it is also lighter and has a brighter display, amongst other new tweaks.
Where to Buy Sony Xperia Tablets
The Xperia Z4, to an extent, looks like its predecessors in the Sony Xperia Z series. But it is slimmer at just 6.1 mm, compared to the then impressive 6.4 mm thinness of the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
The new tablet is equally very light at less than 400 grams, with its maker describing it as “the lightweight champion” in its class. Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet has an elegant, smooth frame.
The slate features an angular design with the contoured edging Sony has come to be known for as well as a matte polycarbonate back panel. The bezel around the screen ensures a compact tablet seemingly built to rival iPad Air.
Display and Cameras
Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is fitted with a 10.1-inch IPS display with an enhanced resolution of 2560 x 1600 pixels and a pixel density of 300ppi. The screen uses the same technologies as can be found on Sony TVs, making for better colour and contrast.
The 2K display is brighter and gives off vivid colours to ensure best viewing experience. You should expect crispy clear views on the tablet.
There is an 8.1 megapixels rear camera and 5.1 megapixels front-facing camera.
Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet features a powerful processor – a 64-bit, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset – to deliver very responsive performance. There is a RAM of 3GB and on-board storage memory of 32GB, extendable with a microSD.
Sony Xperia Z4 tablet runs on the latest Android 5.0 (Lollipop) overlaid with Sony’s own user interface. Its battery has an impressive capacity of 6000mAh, backed by the company’s STAMINA Mode for power conservation. The battery can support up to 17 hours of video playback, according to Sony.
Available in both Wi-Fi only and 4G LTE models, Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet is waterproof as can be seen from its IP 65/68 certification, so you are free to use it in your bathroom, by a swimming pool and even in the rain.
Connectivity options also include Bluetooth, NFC and MHL. Xperia Z4 Tablet can be converted into a laptop using a special keyboard dock accessory.
