We all know the flagship Sony Xperia Z smartphone was first shown at CES 2013 in January. But the availability of Xperia Z smartphone hadn’t been officially announced in the U.S. until now. The unlocked version of the device is now up for sale at Sony’s U.S. web store for $629.99.
The Xperia Z and the Xperia ZL is quite similar by their specs. Both devices have 5-inch full HD screen, 1.5GHz quadcore processor, 2GB RAM, 13 megapixel camera, 16GB of internal storage and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The Xperia ZL comes with plastic chassis, but the Xperia Z sports premium design and materials. Check the full specification at our product page.
The global and unlocked version of the Xperia Z supports GSM cellular networks, so it can be used at any network like AT&T or T-Mobile in the U.S. The device should be able to support well with AT&T 4G LTE and possibly T-Mobile’s variant when its LTE network becomes available. There has not been any official announcement from U.S. carriers yet, confirming they will be carrying the Xperia Z. So users can’t buy at a subsidized price with a two-year contract for now. Let’s hope for the best this summer.
