IFA 2024 is just a week away, but people still can’t wait until the newest products from their favorite tech companies are finally revealed. Leaks about Sony’s newest tablet, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact, have been few and far between for the past months, but now a source has leaked the specifications of the device. While its predecessor, the Xperia Tablet Z2 has had no joy in terms of sales, it has been pretty well-reviewed in the tech community, so the new tablet is still hoping to make a dent in the market.
The main difference between the previous and the new tablet is when it comes to the display. The 8-inch Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact will reportedly have a 1920×1080 Full HD IPS screen and will include Sony’s proprietary Triluminos technology as well as the X-Reality picture processing engine. It will be running on Snapdragon 801, same as with the Xperia Z2 Tablet but with a higher-clocked variant and will have 3GB RAM.
Other than that, the other specs are basically like the previous tablet. It will have 16GB internal storage, an 8MP Exmor RS rear camera, a 4500-5000mAh battery and for connectivity, it will have LTE, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0. An ad on the Xperia Facebook page may have teased the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and its water and dust resistant capability as it showed a man sitting beside the pool using the tablet.
The 7-8-inch tablet market is still dominated by Apple with its iPad Mini Retina, and with another one set to be launched this October, its competitors have to scramble to come up with something pretty special to entice consumers. Now we don’t know if the leaked specs will come true and if this will be enough for the fickle market to switch its attention from the iPad to the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact.
