A certification listing on Sony’s Indonesia Postel website has given away the possible near-release of a new Xperia Tablet. The device is listed as SGP621 and contains a similar naming convention to it’s older tablet brothers in the Xperia series – The Xperia Tablet Z (SGP321) and the Xperia Tablet Z2 (SGP521). Oddly with no “SCP421” in the naming fashion.
Android Central speculates:
“The number “2” in the model number suggests that the upcoming tablet will feature LTE connectivity. For instance, the Wi-Fi only edition of the Xperia Z2 Tablet has a model number SGP511.”
This new tablet will possibly be revealed this year at IFA in Berlin, Germany.
We’ve learned it’s unlikely that this new model will be smaller in size as rumors indicate that Sony is considering production of an 8-inch form factor. We have no further information on hand in regards to the specifications, price or release date – unfortunately, all we have is the above model number.
We do know however, that Sony’s last few tablets have all been of high-end quality and specification, so this new edition could very likely follow the same trend.
Here’s hoping all will be revealed in Berlin next month at IFA. When it does, we’ll let you all know.
