Sony just announced the Xperia Z3v, a new addition to its smartphone lineup headed to Verizon later this month. The Z3v offers the latest high-end hardware found in the Xperia Z3 that Sony announced earlier this year, but it’s design actually looks more like the Z2.
The Xperia Z3v offers a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor—the same one found in the Z3—along with a 3200mAh battery, a 5.2-inch 1080p display, 3GB of RAM and up to 128GB of storage via microSD card slot. It also has the same awesome 20.7-megapixel found on Sony’s recent flagship phones that’s capable of shooting 4K video. It’s also resistant against dust and water. Also, like the Xperia Z3, the Xperia Z3v supports Sony Remote Play when connected to your PS4, which could be a huge attraction for PS4 owners.
The Xperia Z3v will be available from Verizon starting on Oct. 23 for $199.99 with a two-year contract. Also, for a “limited time,” Sony said that Xperia Z3v customers will receive $200 off of an Xperia Z2 tablet. We’ll have hands-on coverage with Sony’s new smartphone soon, so stay tuned for even more info on the Z3v and everything else the company is announcing today.
