We can confirm once more that the folks from T-Mobile are slated to get the 5-inch 1080p and fully waterproof Sony Xperia Z smartphone soon. We’ve seen countless leaks, support documents on T-Mobile’s site, and then last week they started teasing us with a device under water in a little teaser video. Today however, the official sign-up page has finally gone live.
If you had any doubts as to whether or not T-Mobile would be offering the Sony Xperia Z flagship smartphone, you can now rest easy. While we’re still awaiting final confirmation and all of the details, T-Mobile has launched the official sign-up page while saying “Xperia Z is almost here.”
Since seeing this at CES, and reviewing the smaller brother in the Xperia XL we’ve been patiently waiting for it to arrive on a US carrier. Initial leaks suggested T-Mobile and AT&T, but it looks like T-Mobile, at least for now, will be getting the exclusive on this fine piece of electronics.
As a refresher. The Xperia Z comes with a 5-inch 1080p HD display, quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, and is IP57 certified. So it’s water-proof, shock-proof, dust-resistant and more. Add in a 13 megapixel camera, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, on screen navigation keys and more and this is quite the smartphone.
The sign-up page means we can expect more details soon enough, but we’re still hopeful for a late June or early July release date. This phone should come in at a decent price with T-Mobile’s UNCarrier plans, so stay tuned as we’ll report all the details once T-Mo shares the info.
