Right before Sony’s Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona next week, images of two unannounced Xperia devices have surfaced on the web. Both the images have been published by Xperia Blog and are believed to be the two devices Sony plans to unveil at the Mobile World Congress this year.
The first image shows off the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet that is expected to be the main highlight of Sony’s MWC event. The Xperia Z4 Tablet will succeed the Xperia Z2 Tablet from last year and is expected to include a 2K resolution display and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 chipset. Based on the recent Xperia Lounge screenshot leak, it is also believed to have excellent battery life, with Sony claiming it to have ‘industry leading battery performance’. After seeing the kind of battery stamina the Xperia Z3 and the Xperia Z3 Compact are capable of, we are pretty sure the Xperia Z4 Tablet will not disappoint in terms of battery life.
Apart from the Xperia Z4 Tablet, Sony is also going to unveil a mid-range Android smartphone at the event, the Xperia M4 Aqua. The leaked image shows the Xperia Z4 in a red color option and we see that it doesn’t have any flap cover for the USB port. This should be great news as Xperia smartphone owners haven’t been too pleased with the plastic USB port flap on their devices in the past. With no annoying plastic flap cover, you will no longer have to worry about it getting loose over time and compromising the water resistance of the device.
From earlier benchmark leaks, the Xperia M4 Aqua could include a 5.2-inch 1280 x 720 HD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core chipset, 2GB RAM, 16GB of internal storage with a microSD card slot for further expansion, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front-facing camera, and will run on the latest Android 5.0 Lollipop version. The device will be water and dust resistant too, as suggested by the ‘Aqua’ suffix.
It should be noted that Sony will not be holding a formal press conference at the Mobile World Congress this year, so these devices will most likely be announced online next week.
