Sony’s Xperia Z2 flagship to reach Verizon mid-August with LTE-A support

Sony’s flagship Xperia Z2 smartphone is nearing its launch on Verizon according to the latest leaked details. The smartphone will apparently go official sometime mid of next quarter and it will go by the codename Sirius Viv D6503.

The Sony Xperia Z2 has been spotted multiple times with Verizon’s branding and those images were not leaked, but accidentally posted by the Japanese conglomerate themselves. It’s been over a month since we’ve heard anything new on the smartphone, but @evleaks has managed to get his hands on some crucial information about the handset. The long wait which is expected from Verizon, is said to be due to testing and certification of a new variant that will support LTE-Advanced connectivity. This would basically mean that the device will be able to operate on the carrier’s XLTE network.

Additionally, there was also a report from the same leakster stating that the Xperia Z2 Tablet would be making its arrival on Verizon, but no information about the release date has been provided as yet. There’s a possibility that both devices could make their debut on Big Red at the same time. Sony’s flagship smartphone has been well received around the globe. The company has promised to offer the handset unlocked and SIM-free though its online store, but hasn’t as yet. Nevertheless, the device is still available through other means.

– Platform: Android 4.4 KitKat
