Sony has launched a bunch of devices at this year’s IFA in Berlin. The company has announced its Xperia Z3 flagship alongside the Xperia Z3 Compact smartphone. This Japan-based giant has also showcased its Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact and Xperia E3 budget smartphone. These are all solid offering by the Japanese giant, everyone knows that their sales up to this point haven’t exactly been admirable. Sony has announced changes in their business model in order to try to change that. The company has announced they will concentrate on manufacturing high-end devices and reduce the number of their lower-end offerings.
The company has also confirmed it will release their Xperia Z3 flagship on T-Mobile network, they announced that right after the IFA event last month. T-Mobile has been carrying Sony’s devices in the past while other US carriers weren’t exactly interested in doing so. It seems like that’s about to change this fall, reports The Verge. Xperia Z3 will quite probably reach T-Mobile this fall along with some other US carriers, though the details are still unknown at this point. When asked about the Xperia Z3 Compact on the other hand, T-Mobile just said to its Twitter followers they should keep an eye on its newsroom, which kind of suggests we’ll see that device launched as well. Sony is holding an event in New York on October 9 where they’ll probably announce their Z3 family of devices and along with that announce US availability of said devices.
T-Mobile is a shoo-in for both Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact, the question is will the company carry the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact as well? We still don’t have any information about the availability of these devices on other carriers, but it seems like that will happen. Other than saying the company will concentrate on high-end devices, Sony also said they will put their focus on the US market, which basically means they’ll launch the Z line devices on other carriers as well. All we can do at this point is wait for the October 9 event and see which devices will Sony bring and which carriers will offer them.
