Sony first unveiled its Xperia Z4 Tablet at the beginning of March during the Mobile World Congress (MWC), with it scheduled to become available at the end of May. It’s main claims to fame its use of the Snapdragon 810 CPU and being only 6.1mm thick while maintaining Sony’s trend of making its flagship devices waterproof.
We are now in the second week of June and still waiting, with the release of the Z4 Tablet having been delayed until June 29th unless something causes a further delay. No explanation has been given by Sony, but one has to wonder if the Snapdragon 810’s well-known overheating issues are behind the delay. Being only 6.1mm thick, the Xperia Z4 Tablet may well prove too hot to handle if the CPU’s heat isn’t dispersed well enough. Despite using v2.1 of the Snapdragon 810 in the Z4 Tablet (as well as the Xperia Z3+), it would seem that the overheating issues are still present. June 29th is still a little while away, so hopefully Sony can resolve whatever issues there are and get the Xperia Z4 Tablet released by its self-imposed deadline.
