Sony definitely makes a great smartphone. They usually have superior displays and their cameras are top notch. The latest, Sony’s Xperia Z2 flagship unveiled at this year’s CES back in January is a grand display of what Sony has to offer in the smartphone department and it could be a fantastic showing of their prowess, if it could only make it to other regions that have a reputation for spending quite a bit on their devices. Like on a U.S. carrier for example. The Sony Xperia Z2 has been rumored to be coming to the U.S. market via major wireless carriers a couple of times this year so far, with Verizon Wireless exclusivity even being talked about, yet here we are with the first week of July already past us and there has still been no official word.
Thanks to this screenshot acquired by Phone Arena today, it looks like the Xperia Z2 could be heading to Verizon Wireless sometime in the near future after all. The image displays the screen of a Verizon computer that someone is using to go through training on the Xperia Z2 device which would only serve a purpose if the carrier was going to be picking up and selling the device on their network. If we’re to believe this is the case then a VZW launch of the phone can’t be too far off as these types of training sessions usually happen closer to a phone’s launch date.
Even if it is true however, is it too little too late for Verizon and Sony to give this phone a chance through official carrier channels? The phone has already been available in other locations for months, and on top of that the device costs a pretty hefty sum. That could likely change of course with an official launch on a major U.S. carrier like Verizon but time will have to tell in this case. If you’re currently a Verizon Wireless subscriber would you consider buying the Sony Xperia Z2 as your next flagship or would just as soon wait to see what Sony has to offer as its successor?
