Waterproof and dust resistant
The Sony Xperia Tablet Z has an impressive IP55/IP57 rating, making this slim and sleek tablet resistant to water and dust. The water resistant Xperia Tablet Z can easily handle a dip in the sink. We even made sure it can keep going after 30 minutes underwater up to 1 metre. Just remember that all the covers for the micro USB port, the micro SIM slot, the headphone jack and the memory card slot must be firmly closed.
A screen as impressive as HDTV – HD Reality Display
Feel like you’re there with the razor-sharp, super-bright 10.1” HD Reality Display. Sony’s rich experience in display innovation continues. Having brought 3D, Blu-ray and 4k to consumer electronics, we’ve now brought Reality Display to an HD tablet. We use the expertise from our BRAVIA® TV engineers when developing our mobile screens, to bring you the same quality you’d expect from a top-quality HDTV.
The most vivid colours – through Sony screen technology
Xperia Tablet Z brings revolutionary screen technology to the tablet viewing experience. With a full wide colour gamut, Xperia Tablet Z reproduces the widest colour spectrum, so you can view every detail in vivid colour. Both still and moving images are brought to life, for a no-compromise viewing experience.
Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 – True Screen intelligence
The second generation of our acclaimed Mobile BRAVIA® Engine, Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 delivers an even better viewing experience by adding new real-time contrast optimisation to the sharpness enhancement, high-quality colour management and noise reduction. Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 is also able to analyse content type and adjust the image accordingly. Adding Mobile BRAVIA® Engine 2 to the Reality Display makes for the most intelligent HD mobile phone screen
Snapdragon™ Quad-core processor – lightning speed performance
We’ve matched our software with the powerful Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor. This advanced 1.5 GHz Quad-core processor gives you maximum performance and speed, and incredible graphics, without draining your battery. Run multiple apps simultaneously, surf the web with no loading time, and stream videos without a break. The Snapdragon™ S4 Pro processor is asynchronous, which means each core is powered up and down independently. So you get the precise amount of power when you need it, without wasting power when you don’t.
The Snapdragon™ S4 Pro has a dedicated Adreno 320 GPU (graphics processing unit). This is two times faster than the previous Adreno processor and it means you can play the most advanced, visually stunning 3D games, and browse the web quickly and smoothly.
Ultra-fast LTE/4G technology
With Xperia™ Tablet Z, speed is never an issue, even when you’re out and about. The Snapdragon™ S4 Pro has a built-in LTE/4G modem*. With it, speeds are up to 10 times faster than 3G internet connections, so you can upload content quickly wherever you are.
Significantly improve battery life with Battery STAMINA Mode
Smartphones use a lot of power, even when you’re not actively using them. All those apps that you have on your Android™ smartphone may still be running in the background, draining your battery. Battery STAMINA Mode saves you wasted battery drain. It recognises when you’re not using your display and automatically turns off the functions you don’t need, while keeping the notifications you want. As soon as you press the power button to wake up your screen, everything is up and running again.
Stunning shots in any light – 8 MP camera with Exmor R™ for mobile
Xperia™ Tablet Z boasts an advanced back camera, for taking beautiful HD pictures and videos – wherever and whenever. The 8 megapixel camera is built with the same modules as leading Sony cameras, for the highest quality results. The Exmor R™ for mobile sensor is the mobile version of the revolutionary Sony “Exmor R” sensor, which was developed to take exceptional photographs in candlelight. Now Xperia™ Tablet Z lets you take gorgeous pictures with a tablet, with low noise level, even in low-light conditions.
HD chat camera
Evening chat? We’ve included the Sony Exmor R™ for mobile sensor on the 2 megapixel HD front camera as well. So you can have high-quality chats even in less than high-quality lighting conditions.
Superior Auto. Superior photos.
From illuminated night views to close-up macro photos, Superior Auto recognises up to 36 scene types and adjusts the settings automatically, to help you get the best photos anywhere, at any time. As the default camera mode, Superior Auto turns HDR on or off depending on your scene. HDR mode takes multiple shots with varied exposures and then merges them together to make your photos look natural – even in backlit conditions.
