It has been over three months since Sony’s flagship, the Xperia Z2, hit shelves internationally, and now it has finally found its way to the United States of America.
The device won’t be sold with a contract with a carrier, rather its availability will be limited to a standalone GSM Unlocked version; disappointing for those who were hoping for a plan with installments. Consumers will have to purchase the device from the US Sony Web Store.
The American Z2 is the D6503 Variant and will run fine with AT&T and T-Mobile’s 4G LTE; however, since it is a GSM device it does not support CDMA bands, hence preventing usage on Verizon and Sprint.
The device features top notch specifications with a 5.2″ 1080p Triluminous LED display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, Arena 330 GPU, 3GB RAM, 16GB internal storage and the option for expansion. As with most Sony devices, it boasts an outstanding camera, with a 20.7 Megapixels Exmor R sensor and G-Lens, as well as waterproofing and dust resistance.
You can purchase it from the Web Store here for $699.99, about $50 cheaper than its regular price; however, there will be no added bonuses like a SmartBand or special headphones.
