Sony’s next tablet, presumably a successor to the Sony Tablet S has been leaked online ahead of its launch. The tablet, dubbed as the Sony Tablet SGPT1211, is expected to launch around Christmas and has passed the US FCC approval.

A slideshow of the forthcoming tablet was published by XDA-Developers forum member qsp, who claims to work for Sony. The slideshow was posted on a German site Mobiflip, which hints the device will sport the 'Xperia' brand.

The rumoured Xperia tablet is likely to come with a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, 8MP rear facing camera and a 1MP front facing camera for video chatting, a 6,000 mAh battery and a magnesium-aluminium alloy body. The weight of the device is 570 grams.

Pricing details too were revealed on the forum. The device is available in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB priced at $399.99 (Rs. 22,300 approx.), $499.99 (Rs. 27,900 approx.) and $599.99 (Rs. 33,500 approx.).

The device is expected to run on Google’s Android 4.0 ICS. The Sony Tablet SGPT1211 also supports a 9.4-inch display with a resolution of 1200x800. Sony will also bring its TrueBlack technology on the device to minimize glare and improve the representation of colour on the display. In the past, Sony has brought its Bravia technology to the smartphones enhancing the quality of their displays.

The new tablet is also expected to support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, and expandable memory via a microSD card slot, HDMI-out and 3G connectivity.

If you look at the leaked images of the device, it is very easy to mistake the device for a Windows 8 tablet, as the form factor of the device is very slim and just like Microsoft’s Windows 8 tablet. Its image also shows off a slide out keyboard on a stand just like Microsoft’s Windows 8 devices.

The Sony Tablet SGPT1211 is expected to be announced in September and may be available on store shelves around Christmas. Check out the slideshow of the device at the source link, below:
