At Mobile World Congress today, Sony has announced the launch of its latest Xperia Z4 tablet, and it’s one of the very slimmest and lightest tablets that you can buy.

Besides the 10.1-inch, ‘2k’ resolution display, the tablet also features the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core 64-bit processor, it supports 4G LTE connectivity, and is also waterproof.
It’s packed with a huge battery at 6,000 mAh that Sony claims can play back around 17 hours of video, and comes with a respectable 32 GB of storage built-in.
In terms of the camera, the Xperia Z4 has an 8 Megapixel sensor on the back and a 5.1 Megapixel front camera for video calls and selfies (though quite why anyone would want to take pictures on a tablet is a mystery to us).
Sony has also beefed up the multimedia performance of the Xperia Z4, which includes special surround sound audio – and if you connect the headphones, the tablet will automatically sense what type or style of headphones they are and adjust the settings accordingly.
The tablet also supports noise cancellation – which means that if you’re on Skype or using it for a video call (or even just to record a video), it should help to block out audio interference in the background.
Unfortunately, so far, there’s no word yet on pricing or availability.
