After rumors hinted as much, Verizon is here to finally make the Sony Xperia Z3v official. The phone, which is an exclusive version for their network, packs all the things you loved about the regular Z3, only brings a few additional hardware improvements to the table.
Most notably, Verizon’s version of the Z3 comes equipped with wireless charging and a slightly larger 3,200mAh battery (oddly enough, Sony says it’s still 3,100mAh). Everything else is your standard Xperia Z3 with a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage, micro SD card slot, 20.7MP camera, and Sony’s trademark water resistance. Weird thing is, looking over the press images, it seems the body is actually the Xperia Z2 (no rounded edges) — the same one we saw leaked many moons ago.
Verizon says they plan to launch the phone on October 23rd for $200 with a 2-year agreement with the Sony SmartWatch 3 also joining the device later this month.
