A potential successor to the Sony S1 tablet has been leaked through some confidential internal only information that has appeared on Mobiflip.
The Sony Xperia tablet follows a similar design to the S1, however this time features a thinner, sleeker aluminium rear measuring up at just 8.8mm which is 42% thinner than the S1. It is rumoured to have on board; a quad core Tegra 3 processor, finger-print resistant Tru-Black display (of which we were extremely impressed with on our review of the original Tablet S here) as well as be running Android 4.0 or later, and providing users with the option of 16GB, 32GB or 64GB of on board storage.
Now, in what could be purely coincidental timing to this leak, a new Sony tablet has appeared in FCC documents with the model number of SGPT1311. It is clear that this is tablet hardware, and it follows the naming protocol of the other Sony tablets. The FCC have granted approval for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and mobile data network connectivity.
It should only be a couple of months before we find out for sure, as the Sony Tablet S1 is creeping up to a year old. Are you looking forward to a new Sony tablet? The S1 in our opinion was, and still is one of the best Android tablets on the market, so we are excited at what Sony has up their sleeve for the next generation.
