Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact Leaks Through Sony DocumentBy cheatmaster 05:26 Wed, 21 Jul 2021 Comments
At Sony's IFA press event at the beginning of September, we were so far expecting to see the Xperia Z3 debut alongside the smaller Xperia Z3 Compact. These smartphones have been leaked a few times already, so they're definitely coming - and given Sony's usual release cycle, the IFA event fits for their announcement.
Now though it looks like a recent tablet may join those two in Berlin next month. A Sony support document for an accessory (a Bluetooth speaker with a charging dock, in fact) lists the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact as being compatible.
So it seems like Sony may finally be entering the small tablet space, after a few iterations of 10.1-inch flagship slates (the latest being the Z2 Tablet).
Although no information is known about the Z3 Tablet Compact just yet, we assume it will come with a 7" or 8" Full HD touchclassy screen and specs very similar, if not identical, to those of the Xperia Z3 and Z3 Compact smartphones.
Hence, a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset could be running the show, aided by no less than 3GB of RAM. The rear capturing camera of the tablet may very well be downgraded, though, as a 20.7 MegaPixel (MP) snapper on such a device makes small sense.
The incredible success in terms of sales that small tablets have enjoyed over the past few years have already forced Apple into the realm, and now Sony may be preparing to follow suit.
