After being announced in November last year, the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact remains one of the thinnest tablets in the market. While the tech specs are a bit older, it is still quite relevant with a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, 8-inch Trilumionos display, 6.4mm thinness, 8.1MP rear camera and more. We managed to get our hands on the 4G LTE equipped version for a little unboxing video which you can check out in this article.

Asides from the usual pre-MWC leaks, the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet has now leaked with both tech specs and a pic. These have revealed a rounded corner design and metal trim much like the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. The leaked tech spec for the Xperia Z4 Tablet included a 2K or 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution display. Unconfirmed tech specs and features that are most likely true include a 10.1-inch sized display and IPx7 water and dust resistance just like it's previous versions. While we still recommend taking such rumours with a pinch of salt, we shouldn't have to wait that long for the full official reveal as MWC 2015 is set for just next week.

Although both Sony Xperia Z4 and Xperia Z4 Ultra are expected to be announced only in January at CES 2015, we have already come across the tech specs of these devices. Latest rumors suggest that the Xperia Z4 features a 5.4 inch Quad HD Triluminous display along with the powerful Snapdragon 805 SoC. There will be 4GB RAM onboard and a 20.7MP camera at the back.

The newly released Sony Xperia Z3 Compact offers a number of great tech specs and features in a small package that can easily fit into your pocket. While these features include the 2.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB RAM and 20.7MP rear camera with IP67 water proofing, it turns out that the 2600 mAh battery is also worthy of praise. This is because recent battery life benchmarks place the Xperia Z3 Compact around the top in terms of battery life on single charge. At 10 hours or so of continuous heavy usage, the Xperia Z3 Compact can easily last 2 days without having to charge on normal usage. Checking out the competition, it easily beats the much larger Apple iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5 and even it's bigger brother the Sony Xperia Z3. Check out the chart below for yourself:
