Sony’s latest flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z3, is coming to Verizon on October 23, as the Xperia Z3v.
The Xperia Z3v is nearly the same device as the Z3 smartphone, the only differences being a plastic build with an aluminum accent strip in place of the rounded metal material, as well as a slightly larger battery and Qi wireless charging. Sony claims the new 3200mAh battery will last over a day for some users.
Other than that, the Z3v has the same Snapdragon 801 processor, 5.2-inch display, waterproof body, and built-in Playstation 4 streaming ability as the flagship Sony announced at IFA. The Z3v runs the Android OS with a light Sony skin.
Beginning October 23, Verizon customers will be able to purchase the Sony Xperia Z3v in either black or white, for a starting price of $199.99 with a two-year agreement.
Verizon also announced, the Sony Smartwatch 3 will also be available on its network later this fall for a price of $250.
