Verizon Wirless Will Carry Sony Xperia Z3v,$199 On Contract


Sony’s latest Xperia Z3 is debuting in United States in a roughly a month’s time since its announcement at IFA in September. Compared to previous Xperia Z series flagships, which landed in United States with a great delay and no carrier support, Xperia Z3v has landed in short time and with Verizon Wireless behind it.

Sony has insignificant existenece in United States compared to other OEMs and carriers don’t seem enthusiastic to carry its devices. Today’s Xperia Z3v launch might help change that. Although it’s good news that Sony is getting carrier support in states, it should try joining hands with other carriers too, as the big red is generally perceived as expensive one. I guess magenta would suit most people.

Xperia Z3v isn’t any different in terms of spec sheet. It is powered by a Snapdragon 801 SoC and 3GB RAM. Has 5.2 inch FullHD display, 20.7 MP camera which can record 4K videos and it’ll obviously support LTE on Verizon’s network. Another highlight of Xperia Z3v is that it’s IP66/68 certified which protects it from dust and water. It’ll have 32GB of inbuilt memory and microSD card support up to 128GB. Xperia Z3v also features a 3200 mAh battery which should give a solid battery life. Xperia Z3v will also support Qi wireless charging. Xperia Z3v will run Android KitKat (4.4) out of the box.

You can pick-up Sony Xperia Z3v on Verizon through carrier’s site and stores, from October 23. It’s cautiously priced at $199 for a new two year contract. Verizon Wireless is throwing in some offers for Xperia Z3v buyers, check them out in the source link below.
