Sony announces Xperia Z4 tablet… but no phone

Sony has today announced the Xperia Z4 tablet, but rather curiously, hasn’t said anything about the expected Z4 phone.

The tablet itself is, like everything else at MWC, pretty unremarkable – its an Android rectangle, and that’s all you really need to know.

Though that said, the company is keen to point out the audio on the device – which has stereo front-facing speakers:

“Sony’s leading audio technologies ensure you never miss a beat. High-Res Audio reproduces high frequency sound in amazing detail for a studio quality experience. DSEE HXTM processing upscales the audio fidelity of tracks to near High-Res Audio quality. Xperia Z4 Tablet supports digital noise cancelling for those times when you need to block out background noise. And for high quality wireless music listening, Sony’s new LDACTM codec transmits data three times more efficiently than Bluetooth.”

The rest of the spec is largely in-line with the rest of the industry. It’s a 10″-er, is powered by a Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor and comes with 32GB of built in storage. The battery will apparently give 17 hours of video playback though – which would be impressive.

It’ll be interesting to see if Sony announces a Z4 phone now.
