We learned yesterday that Sony’s flagship smartphone might get a tablet companion in the Xperia Tablet Z. While it’s not yet official, we certainly hope that it’d be announced sooner rather than later – especially after finding out the specs.

Fortunately, word has it that Sony – with the help of Japanese carrier DoCoMo — will unveil the new tab in its home country on January 22. Upon introducing the device, the Tablet Z will also be showcased in select DoCoMo stores until January 27. This information was briefly listed on DoCoMo’s website, but has since been taken off.

The Sony Xperia Tablet Z has yet to pose for the camera, but here are the specs once more to get you excited:

  • 10.1-inch full HD display
  • 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 32GB internal storage
  • 8.1 MP rear camera, 2.2MP front-facing camera
  • NFC
  • LTE
  • Water- and dust-proof IP55/IP57
  • 6,000mAh battery
  • 6.9 mm thin
  • Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
