Sony Xperia Z2 finally goes on sale in the United States for $699.99


Three months after its global availability, Sony has finally put the Xperia Z2 on sale in the United States. The handset will not be sold via any carrier and instead interested consumers would have to buy it unlocked from Sony’s US web store. 

Sony is selling the D6503 variant in the United States, which supports T-Mobile and AT&T’s LTE networks. Verizon and Sprint owners though, should clearly stay away from the handset as it does not support the neccessary CDMA bands.

Interested buyers can grab the Xperia Z2 from Sony’s website for $699.99, down from its usual price of $750 thanks to a discount by Sony. Sadly, the company is not including its SWR10 SmartBand or the noise canceling headphones that it bundled with the device in many other regions of the world.

A quick reminder of the Z2 specs is below:

  • Waterproof and dust-resistant
  • 5.2-inch 1080p Triluminous display with Live Color LED
  • Snapdragon 801 clocked at 2.3GHz
  • Adreno 330 GPU
  • 3GB RAM
  • 16GB storage space
  • microSD card slot
  • 20.7MP Exmor R sensor with G-Lens

While the Xperia Z2 does not offer any ground breaking features, it is, arguably, better than the HTC One M8 and the Galaxy S5.
