Report: Sony Xperia Z3 pegged to land on Verizon Wireless as Z3v


The Xperia Z3 may have just been announced and confirmed only for T-Mobile, but according to a report by PCMag, Verizon is set to get the phone as well. Or, at least a variant of it, labeled the Xperia Z3v.

Sony has had a hit or miss relationship with U.S. carriers over the past few years. The first Xperia smartphones were available on AT&T for a time, and Verizon Wireless even picked up the sadly underwhelming Xperia Play in 2011. After that, Sony smartphones through a carrier were a rarity until the Z series was released on T-Mobile. Things haven't gotten much better for Sony, but that might change this year.

The Xperia Z3 shares a lot in common with its predecessor, the Xperia Z2, but the changes are enough to get excited for. For starters, it's the first phone to support PS4 Remote Play. And with a refined design and a impressive camera enhancements, the Z3 is the phone many people have been wanting from Sony for a while, and luckily, it may be readily available. 

While a Verizon Wireless release has not been officially confirmed, the Z3 has been rumored to come to Sprint as well. If Sony's latest and greatest finds a home on three of the four major U.S. carriers, it will be the biggest release of an Xperia smartphone for the country, and a big win for Sony.
