The Sony Tablet S could soon have a successor.

Sony unveiled the Xperia Z, its new flagship smartphone, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week, and it looks like the Japanese company is planning a new tablet to go with it. Leaked specifications for the Xperia Tablet Z has surfaced online, revealing a 10.1-inch display, LTE connectivity, and a speedy quad-core processor.

The 10.1-inch display is expected to boast a 1920×1200 “full HD” resolution, and it’ll be accompanied by a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor — that’s the same chip that’s baked into the Xperia Z smartphone. The specifications also reveal 2GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 6,000 mAh battery.

On the back, the Xperia Tablet Z is expected to offer an 8-megapixel camera, and a 2-megapixel camera on the front. You can also look forward to Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, and 4G LTE. All of this is to be packed into a slim shell measuring just 6.9mm. That’s 3.6mm thinner than the Google Nexus 7, and 0.3mm thinner than the Apple iPad mini.

Like the Xperia Z, the Xperia Tablet Z is also expected to be waterproof and dust-proof, with an IP57 certification. It’s also likely to sport a similar design, UnwiredView reports, moving away from the look of its predecessor, the Tablet S.

Of course, we must note that these specifications are just a rumor right now, so take them with a pinch of salt until we get them confirmed by Sony. The Xperia Tablet Z could get its official unveiling at Mobile World Congress next month, but we’ll bring you any further information as soon as we have it.
