Sony may launch a new Xperia tablet at this year's IFA, if a certification listing on Indonesia's Postel website is any indication. The device, which sports a model number SGP621, has a similar naming convention to earlier tablet models in the Xperia series, the Xperia Tablet Z (SGP321) and the Xperia Z2 Tablet (SGP521).

The number "2" in the model number suggests that the upcoming tablet will feature LTE connectivity. For instance, the Wi-Fi only edition of the Xperia Z2 Tablet has a model number SGP511.

It is likely that the upcoming tablet will be of a smaller form factor, as rumors regarding the device suggest that Sony is considering an 8-inch form factor. As for the specs, there is no mention as to what the tablet will feature under the hood, but seeing as how Sony has positioned the previous two tablets as high-end products, it is safe to say that the upcoming tablet may feature similarly high-end hardware.

While there's no further information regarding the tablet other than the model number, it is likely that we'll be hearing more from Sony at the IFA, which will be held in Berlin next month. We'll be covering the event extensively, so stay tuned for more information.

Would an 8-inch Xperia tablet be more enticing? What kind of specs do you think the device will feature? Let us know in the comments.

Perhaps this is the reason why Sony killed off the Z Ultra series. I'm curious to see how it looks...

Love my Xperia Tablet Z, slim, fast, powerful and can easily take a knock, but an 8 inch Xperia tablet, that's a day one purchase for me.

8 Inch Xperia Play tablet with front facing speakers and an attachable controller. Otherwise I'll stick with my new Shield tablet.

SQ805, 3gb RAM, 32gb internal, IP58, 8" Full-HD, NFC, OTG, USB 3.0, micro sdxc slot, QI charging...

I don't think they will put 805. But will be cool though along with Google play edition.
