Sony has unveiled its new Xperia Tablet Z, confirming the device will launch in Japan this spring.

The tablet is the successor to Sony's existing Tablet S and will feature Google's Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.

Sony has also confirmed it will use the same rugged technology to ensure the Tablet Z is water and dustproof.

The Tablet Z's 10.1in screen will house Sony's custom "Reality Display" and "Mobile Bravia" technology. The same technology can be found in the company's forthcoming Xperia Z smartphone, which made a splash at this year's CES in Las Vegas.

Sony claims the technology allows the phone to offer equivalent display performance to that seen on most HD TVs.

In terms of thickness, Sony said the Xperia Tablet Z will measure in at a minuscule 6.9mm and weigh just 495g.

The Tablet Z will feature an 8.1MP rear camera, featuring Sony's Exmor R sensor, designed to improve the camera's low light photo taking prowess.

Sony's confirmed the tablet will be powered by an unspecified 1.5GHz quad-core processor and boast 4G and near field communication connectivity.

There's currently no word on the Tablet Z's price or when it will be made available in the UK and at the time of publication Sony had not responded to V3's request for comment.
