The next-generation Sony Xperia Tablet specifications may have leaked on net via a couple tweets that have slipped out of China. The current Xperia Tablet S
tooks its name from the Sony Xperia S flagship smartphone for 2012 and runs a Tegra 3 quad-core processor. The purported Sony Xperia Tablet Z would take its name from the new Sony Xperia Z
, the Japanese company's flagship smartphone for 2012.
According to the leak, the tablet is going internally by the codename "Pollux" and a model designation of C690X. It is also said to be the first tablet to be developed by the new Sony Mobile division, suggesting that it could also take a different design approach to the Xperia Tablet S and Tablet S that feature a signature folded appearance. Given that it could be as thin as 6.9mm, it is almost certain that it will sport a new look.
Specification-wise, the new Xperia Tablet Z would incorporate the same 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon Pro matched with 2GB of RAM that powers the Xperia Z smartphone. LTE connectivity will also be an option. Its 10.1-inch display will have resolution of 1920x1200 pixels with a 2-megapixel camera on the front and an 8-megapixel rear camera. Storage will be 32GB while its battery is said to be 6000mAh which should be good for around 10 hours on the go.
