Sony Slips, Shows Off Unannounced Tablet and Smartwatch in Promo on Facebook

sony-logo-1

With IFA kicking off next week, the week before is usually packed with unintentional leaks. The newest leak is from Sony, who may have accidentally shown off two upcoming products in one promo that was placed on its Facebook page.

In the promo, which looks to have been taken down by now, a man sitting poolside is pictured using an unknown tablet, while also wearing an unknown smartwatch. The smartwatch, could either be an upcoming SmartWatch-branded device, or even better, Sony’s first Android Wear-powered smartwatch. The design, to us, gives off a Samsung vibe, especially in the clasp region of the bands. 

As for the tablet, the only upcoming device rumored from Sony that could match this description is the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. Much like other Sony-made tablets, it should be water resistant, meaning the gentleman who is holding it by the pool isn’t being completely irresponsible. In terms of specs, the Tablet Compact might come with a 7-8″ 1080p display and Snapdragon processor, but not much else is known at this time.

Thankfully, as previously noted, IFA starts next week, and many of our unanswered questions will be satisfied.

    Z3 coming to Verizon October 2014.

  • Dan

    Does anyone else care that it looks like that guy has not pants on?

    • TylerChappell

      I have no complaints about guys not wearing pants whatsoever.

    • TalonDesigns

      By the pool… Um. Shorts maybe?

  • paul_cus

    Tablet looks cool, but I won’t be in the market for one of those for awhile. Happy with my Tablet Z.

  • Big Diq Myke

    Love T-Mobile!!!

  • santi

    I’d honestly buy the compact
    The current z3 is pretty awkward to hold in portrait mode

  • Tony Byatt

    I’m interested in that smartwatch if it runs AW…

    Seems like it would be a good “active” device…

  • Cael

    I’d be interested in a smaller Sony tab depending on the battery life.
    I’d get the watch if it was $99…because it looks cheap from that shot.

  • Finire

    I’m really hoping for the Z3 phone to come to the US… I’ve been beyond impressed with the Z2 Tablet so far.

    Didn’t they say a while back they were not going to do android wear, because they spend too much time and money into their own os to drop it? http://www.engadget.com/2014/03/25/sony-turns-down-android-wear/

    “yuck looks like a samsung watch whaa.” “i’m only gonna buy the 360″ said everyone on droidlife.

    • Suicide_Note

      Or the new round LG watch.

      • Zach Cline

        I wouldn’t even bother with the LG watch . It will probably be junk just like their last attempt at it

        • Suicide_Note

          Possibly, but they’re definitely capable of putting out good product. Before the G2/3 and the N5, most folks tended to disregard LG.

          I’ll reserve my final judgment until I actually see the finished product, but the fact it has a fully round and utilized display is one up on the 360 already.

        • Bryan Mills

          U wot m8?

          How do you know Moto 360 isn’t junk?

    • bkosh84

      Pretty much. Fanbois on this site are worse than Apple ones…

  • Jared Denman

    Doesn’t matter. We won’t see it here in the US.

    • Bryan Mills

      Only their phones don’t come to the US. Except the select few.

      • Jared Denman

        It was a joke. #sarcasm

        • Bryan Mills

          It was a bad joke, since this doesn’t even mention their Z3.

  • Bryan Mills

    TASM2…so bad.

    • MichaelFranz

      not really…..i thought it was great and opened up the series for a lot more.

      • Bryan Mills

        Have fun waiting til 2018 for the 3rd one

        • MichaelFranz

          considering they are expanding the spiderman universe with the sinsister 6 and venom vs carnage. I think loyal fans will be happy as long as the movies are done right. thats the problem with most people saying it was bad and saying “oh man why did they kill gwen”….i just shake my head

          • Bryan Mills

            Just recolor her hair and boom, we have Mary jane.
