Sony outs the world's thinnest 10-inch tablet, the Xperia Z4 tablet measuring just 6.1mm


Sony's Xperia lineup is known for its beautiful design and the Japanese giant has continued its legacy by releasing the world's thinnest 10-inch tablet, the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet. The device is just 6.1mm thin, making it even thinner than the Apple iPad Air 2. It is super light too, weighing just about 389 grams. Under the hood, the tablet features a powerful Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit processor with 3GB of RAM. There will be 32GB of internal storage on the base Wi-Fi only version. Up front, a beautiful 10.1-inch display will sport a 2K resolution. The device is IP68 certified which means it can survive underwater up to 1.5 meters for around 30 minutes. At the back there will be an 8.1MP camera and up front, there will be a 5MP shooter. The 6000 mAh battery can provide up to 17 hours of continuous video playback. The Xperia Z4 tablet will come in Wi-Fi only and 4G LTE versions. It will run on Android 5.0 Lollipop version right out of the box. No official pricing or release dates have been revealed but expect the tablet to retail for around $500 (RM1813) when it hits the Malaysian market sometime later in the year.
