T-Mobile USA’s Sony Xperia Z confirmed by FCC
As reported earlier this month, T-Mobile USA intends to launch its own version of Sony’s Xperia Z. The FCC is now confirming this, as it has approved a T-Mobile-bound Xperia Z, unveiling photos of it, as well as its User Manual.
The handset comes with AWS LTE and HSPA+ connectivity, and could become T-Mobile’s third Full HD smartphone, after the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4. It will probably be offered for a downpayment of $100 or $150, plus monthly payments of $20 (or more) for 2 years.
The new Xperia has a waterproof and dustproof case, featuring: a 5 inch display, NFC, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm processor, Adreno 320 GPU, 13MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing camera, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support.
The Xperia Z has been sold in almost 5 million units around the world (since February when it was first released). It currently runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and will be obviously updated to newer versions of the OS in the future.
