Sony CEO Kaz Hirai showed up at D11 and made an exciting announcement, if not a vague one. The Sony Xperia Z is their flagship, and has been for a while, but Hirai says that it will be coming to a US carrier soon. It’s taken a long while, but better late than never. He didn’t say what carrier, as he wants to give them the chance to make their own announcement, but he confirmed it’s coming.
We suspect that the device will be coming to T-Mobile, for a few reasons. First of all, photos of a T-Mobile variant were leaked by TmoNews, so that’s a pretty good sign that it’s coming to the carrier. Also, the device passed through the FCC with T-Mobile bands. All that adds up to us being excited for Sony to come back to the US with a current flagship.
With the Xperia Z, you get a 5 inch 1080p display, a quad core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of memory with a microSD slot, a 13MP camera, a 2,330 mAh battery, Jelly Bean 4.1, and of course a water and dust proof body. However, keep in mind that the front and back are all glass, so it isn’t exactly rugged. Are you excited to hear that this device will come to the US? Leave a comment!
