Unannounced Sony tablet, smartwatch teased in official imageAlex Wagner - Editorial Director of News and Content
Apparently Sony has a bit of a problem when it comes to posting images of unannounced products on the web. Earlier this year it shared images of a Verizon-branded Xperia Z2 on three separate occasions, and now Sony may have accidentally revealed two more upcoming products.
In a page advertising its Smartband fitness band, Sony has posted an image of a small, white tablet and a black smartwatch. Neither device looks like any Sony product that we’ve seen announced to date, but there’s no mention on Sony’s page of what they might be.
We recently heard rumblings of an “Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact,” and the tablet shown in this image looks like it could be a smaller device in the 7- to 8-inch range, so it’s possible that this device could be the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. The smartwatch is a bit more of a mystery, but it’s possible that the wearable could be a follow-up to 2013’s SmartWatch 2.
It’s also worth noting that, considering Sony’s Xperia product history and the fact that these two products are shown by the pool, it’s possible that they’ll both feature some sort of water resistance.
Sony’s holding an event in Berlin next month for IFA 2014, so we could see one or both of these devices announced shortly. Stay tuned.
