Verizon may launch a 4G LTE Sony Ericsson Xperia Play
Introduced by Verizon Wireless back in May, the Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is certainly not among the carrier’s flagship smartphones. It is an interesting handset, though, with its PlayStation-styled gaming keypad, and probably that’s why Verizon seems to prepare an LTE version of it.
According to Android Central, an LTE-capable Xperia Play does exist, and employee training has apparently started yesterday – so Verizon could launch it before the end of the year. It remains to be seen if the LTE Xperia Play comes with other enhancements besides 4G. A new generation processor and decent internal memory would certainly be nice.
AT&T is already selling a 4G Xperia Play, but that’s just an HSPA+ device, not an LTE one. At the moment, the non-LTE Sony Ericsson Xperia Play is offered by Verizon for free on contract.
