Design & Durabilityclose
Aluminium power button
Durable tempered glass
Waterproof headphone jack
This super light and super-slim tablet is a true feat of engineering. Stainless steel corners, an ultra slim frame and a tempered glass front give an elegant and durable finish. The result is an ultra-portable tablet that weighs virtually nothing in your hand.
Waterproof* and dust tight
The Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact has an impressive IP65/IP68 rating, which makes this slim and sleek tablet both waterproof and resistant to the tiniest dust particles. The display is made of scratch resistant, durable tempered glass.
Just rinse it off
The waterproof Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact tablet can easily handle a dip in the sink. In fact, you can take pictures with it while swimming in freshwater for up to 30 minutes, or even dive with it up to 1.5 m. Just remember that all the covers for the micro USB port, the micro SIM slot and the memory card slot must be firmly closed.
IP (Ingress Protection) rating
Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact has been given an IP rating of 65/68. This is a standard that measures a device’s resistance levels to both dust and water.
**In compliance with IP65 and IP68, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact is protected against the ingress of dust and is waterproof. Provided that all ports and covers are firmly closed, the tablet (1) is dust tight, (2) is protected against low-pressure jets of water from all possible directions in compliance with IP65, and (3) can be submerged under 1.5 meters of freshwater for up to 30 minutes in compliance with IP68. Abuse and improper use of device will invalidate warranty. For more information see Support page
Brighter, sharper and more colourful
Our brightest display yet
Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact raises the bar in brightness, with display luminosity that goes above and beyond what you’re used to. Combined with Sony’s intuitive contrast enhancement technology, viewing is sharp even in bright sunlight.
Always a great viewing angle
With IPS technology, the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact offers an improved viewing angle. So you get super sharp images and accurate colours, no matter which angle you’re looking at your device from.
TRILUMINOS Display for mobile and Live Colour LED
For the widest spectrum of colours
Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS™ Display technology creates a wider palette of rich, natural colours. With our BRAVIA® TV expertise, hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, for a more vivid viewing experience and a heightened sense of depth.
TRILUMINOS™ technology uses LEDs that emit purer reds and greens, creating a brighter and more uniform light that captures the true colours of the source. From lush landscapes to natural skin tones – Sony delivers a significantly wider colour range. So you can view every moment in astonishingly authentic colour and breathtaking quality.
Live Colour LED is a brand new technology integrated only into Sony devices, giving you the world’s deepest and most intense colours on a smartphone or tablet display. This new innovation combines red and green phosphor with blue LEDs and customised colour filters to produce a brighter and more uniform light. Capturing true colours without the risk of oversaturation.

Razor-sharp images with X-Reality™ for mobile
From still pictures and low-resolution videos to high-resolution films, Sony’s unique image software engine analyses each image to optimise colours, sharpness and contrast, as well as reduce noise. The super resolution function reproduces missing pixels, for spectacular clarity and astonishing detail – bringing your favourite moments closer to Full HD quality.
(1) Pixel reproduction:
Sony’s unique super resolution breathes new life into everything you see. This technology examines each pixel in an image and reproduces the ones that are lacking, giving you the sharpest images.
(2) Texture and outline improvement:
By selectively enhancing elements that help to render the texture and sharpen the outlines, images become clearer and crisper.
(3) Colour and contrast enhancement:
The Intelligent Image Enhancer reproduces the vividness of the image in its original colour. Pictures are selectively optimised by enhancing the contrast, making images appear more detailed and true to life.
(4) Noise reduction:
Intelligent Noise Reduction decreases noise that can occur in high-motion scenes or footage shot in low-light conditions. As a result, images become clearer and smoother.

Experience legendary sound
Get more out of every beat and note
DSEE HX (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) is a technology that lets you upscale low-res songs to near High-Resolution sound quality. It refines and restores heavily compressed MP3 and AAC files, delivering powerful, full-range audio.
Music like it was meant to be heard
High-Res Audio reduces distortion and noise at wider frequency ranges to reproduce high frequency sound in amazing detail. So every track you listen to resembles the sound quality as it was originally recorded in the studio.

Block out the noise
Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact comes with built-in Digital Noise Cancelling technology that reduces exterior noise by up to 98% when paired with the headset MDR-NC31EM. The technology removes the lower-frequency parts of the noise, preventing the high-frequency part of it from reaching the ear. This way, a noisy bus or a busy shopping mall won’t stand in your way of a great listening experience.
