Sony Xperia flagship reportedly coming to Sprint, likely the Z3

While the Xperia Z family has managed to attract quite a following in recent years, Sony hasn’t been too aggressive in bringing its devices to the United States. With the Xperia Z, the handset was sold in unlocked form and through T-Mobile. The Xperia Z1 was also sold unlocked in the US, but as the Xperia Z1S on T-Mobile. And then there’s the Xperia Z2, which still hasn’t launched with any carrier and can only be purchased outright and unlocked.

There have been rumors in the last year that Sony would finally expand its US presence, starting with bringing the Xperia Z2 to Verizon. Unfortunately, this launch still hasn’t happened and it seems a little too late in the game now, though who knows for sure with Sony. The bigger question is whether or not Sony’s next flagship can find its way to any U.S. carriers this time around. If new reports from Reuters and the Wall Street Journal proves correct, the answer is yes.

Reportedly Softbank and Sprint will be teaming up with Sony to bring a new Xperia flagship device over to the Sprint network in the US and Softbank in Japan.The report doesn’t specifically call the device out as the Xperia Z3, though that seems like the most logical fit.  Providing this report is accurate, it’s unclear whether this is an exclusive agreement, or if this could mean we’ll see the Sony Xperia Z3 on more than one US carrier.

While we certainly wouldn’t get our hopes up, it would be nice to see Sony launch its flagship on all major U.S. carriers like we’ve seen more recently from other OEMs like HTC, LG and Samsung. What do you think, if the Xperia Z3 does arrive to your preferred US carrier, would you be interested in picking it up?

    I know I love my Xperia Z Ultra. Sony makes some really nice mobiles (smartphones and tablets). Looking forward to all Sony offers.
