The LG Optimus G Pro and Sony Xperia Z Tablet have both been officially unveiled, confirming earlier reports suggesting release dates on the imminent horizon.
According to Sony, the Xperia Z Tablet represents a significant step forward, with the device being the thinnest of its kind ever produced. Powered by Android and with a suitably impressive list of specs and features, the Xperia Z Tablet .01-inched slimmer than the current iPad and sports a larger 10.1-inch screen.
The LG Optimus G Pro meanwhile has been confirmed as boasting a 5-inch screen and truly remarkable specs, taking it right into the realms of the high-end Tabphone hybrid market fast taking over as one of the world’s most lucrative.
Release confirmation for both devices has been offered for Japanese markets only, though the US can expect to find out the specifics for domestic versions during February. The 2013 Mobile World Congress will see the two new powerhouses shown-off in all their glory, along with the world’s most promising new and upcoming Smartphones, Tablets and other examples of high-end mobile technology.
Besides offering a compellingly thin, sleek and sender frame, the Sony Xperia Z Tablet also happens to be the lightest in its size range at 1.1lbs and boast remarkable dust and water-proof characteristics. The tab has been designed to work seamlessly with the Sony Xperia Z Smartphone by way of Sony’s “One Touch Sharing” feature – the Xperia Z Smartphone also offering a water and dust-proof design.
Back with the LG Optimus G Pro’s specs and features, we’re essentially being offered a revamp of the stunning Optimus G with a larger screen, 440ppi pixel density, larger battery and faster quad-core processor.
Both devices are expected to be confirmed for official US release date during or shortly after MWC 2013, which is due to take place at the end of next month.
