T-Mobile has today become the second U.S. carrier to confirm that it will be offering the Sony Xperia Z3 this month. Unlike Verizon, however — which has its own customized version of the device — T-Mobile will offer the original that was first unveiled at IFA 2014 in Berlin last month.

You’ll be able to get the Xperia Z3 in T-Mobile stores beginning October 29, and online pre-sales begin this Wednesday, October 15 at 12:00 a.m. PDT. T-Mobile has stated that those who order early could receive the handset before its official launch date, so you may not have to wait until the end of the month if you’re willing to buy this week.

The Xperia Z3 will be available for $0 down if you pay $26.25 a month for 24 months.

In addition to its gorgeous 5.2-inch 1080p display, the Xperia Z3 boasts a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage, and a microSD card slot. Like all flagship Sony smartphones, there’s also a high-end Exmor RS camera on its back capable of taking 20.7-megapixel photos and 4K video.

The Xperia Z3 is also dust- and water-resistant with an IP65/68 rating, and it’s the first Sony smartphone with PS4 Remote Play, which lets you play your favorite PS4 games on your phone over Wi-Fi using a DualShock controller.
