The Sony Xperia Z (left) may soon arrive at T-Mobile
Documents listed on the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Web site suggest that T-Mobile may soon offer a version of the Sony Xperia Z.
Details show that this flagship Sony smartphone will support T-Mobile’s newly launched LTE network as well as pentaband HSPA+. In addition to the standard fare of photos and test results, the docs reveal the user manual and features such as Wi-Fi calling.
First announced in January at CES, the Sony Xperia Z has yet to find a home in the United States. Hardware specifications include a 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, a 13-megapixel rear camera, 2GB RAM, and a 2,700mAh battery. Powered by Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the water- and dust-resistant handset is strong enough to compete with the likes of HTC, Samsung, and LG.
Neither T-Mobile nor Sony have confirmed plans to offer the Xperia Z, but we can surely expect some noise soon.
