Sony’s 8-inch tablet and new smartwatch leak in promo image
Sony accidentally revealed the existence of the 8-inch Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact last week, and not it’s done it again – a promotional shot may give us the first look at the device.
The image above was spotted on an official Sony Facebook page, part of a promo for the Lifeband wearable. The image appears to have been removed from the page since then, not before a tipster sent it to the folks over at Xperia Blog.
The device in the picture appears to be a smaller version of the Xperia Tablet Z2, and it’s very likely that it’s the rumored Tablet Z3 Compact. The device features a typical Xperia design, with a 4:3 screen format and thinner bezels on the sides (when held in portrait mode). Judging from the poolside setting, the Z3 Compact will definitely be water resistant, just like the Tablet Z2 and all the Xperia flagships.
The other device making an appearance in this leak could be the third-gen Sony Smartwatch, which is slated for an IFA release, just like the Xperia Tablet Z3 Compact. The star of the show at IFA 2014, however, will be the Xperia Z3. Read all about it in our rumor roundup.
