Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra - 6GB RAM, 4K screen, 12100mAh Battery and more

The leaked insane specifications of Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra suggests that this device could be the most powerful android device. In addition to a super-sharp 13-inch display and more RAM than you could ever need in a mobile device, the device is also expected to have a giant battery, a 64-bit processor, and of course, PS4 Remote Play.

According to information obtained by Chinese website PadNews, a slate known as the Sony Xperia Z4 Tablet Ultra is looming on the horizon. Not only is it rumored to be big, the tablet could potentially also pack some downright crazy hardware, like a 12.97-inch display with a 3,840 x 2,400 pixel resolution. Indeed, this means we could be in for a 4K Ultra HD screen with a 16:10 ratio.

However, the overall impression of the rumored Z4 does lend itself to some skepticism. The features seem more like the wishlist of a truly dedicated tablet fan and not a realistic leap from what’s currently available with Sony tablets (or almost any other tablets for that matter). Given that the rumored release date of the Sony Xperia Z4 is in January of 2015, the likelihood of all the listed features is even smaller.

Sony Xperia Z3 Camera Problems

Sony Xperia Z3 has the best-in-class 20.7MP camera with Sony's Exmor RS™ for mobile sensor and the first ISO 12800 in a smartphone. The large 1/2.3” Exmor RS™ for mobile image sensor ensures smooth, clear capturing with true-to-life details.

The images below are some of the advertised on Sony's official site.

The phone even with such capabilities it has some problems. Some users have reported an issue with their brand-new Xperia Z3 cameras having a big pink-ish blob in the middle, most often when they try to take a picture indoors. The problem is being discussed on Sony's official boards, as well as on Reddit and XDA Developers' forums.

Sony has advised users Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact adjust the white balance in the camera settings to get rid of the appearance of pink spots. This action actually fixes the problem, but the image will not correct color rendition. Return to factory settings does not solve the problem.

Have you encountered a similar problem and were able to find a solution there?
