Don’t wait for carriers, go grab the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact officially in the US unlocked

Now that the Xperia Z3 flagship has been confirmed for launch through multiple carriers in the US, it doesn’t look like the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact will be getting the same treatment. Instead, the company is using its usual approach by making the handset available for purchase through its online store.

And as you’d expect, the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact is unlocked and SIM-free. It’s tagged at $529.99 and comes in four colors, namely white, orange, green and black. The phone is also LTE enabled and Xperia Blog notes that its supports bands compatible with AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s 4G networks.
