Since we announced the Xperia™ Z3 series at IFA last month, consumers have seen firsthand – and agreed – that our new Xperia Z3 smartphones and tablet bring together the best of Sony’s design, innovation and entertainment to go beyond ‘good’ and deliver an experience that is truly ‘great’. Today, we’re excited to extend that experience with news from the U.S. that the latest addition to the Xperia Z3 series, Xperia Z3v will be coming to Verizon starting 23rd October.

Xperia Z3v brings many of our latest innovations and standout features to Verizon customers in the US, such as the highest waterproof rating*, Hi-Res Audio support, PlayStation®4 gaming through PS4™ Remote Play** and the camera expertise of our Cyber-shot and Handycam divisions in the 20.7MP camera. In addition, we’ve collaborated with Verizon to bring some additional capabilities with their customer in mind, such as wireless charging using the latest inductive ‘Qi’ technology.

Verizon will also be the first carrier in the U.S. to offer Sony’s SmartWatch 3 – the first “smartwatch” specifically designed for the upcoming Android Wear updates – including offline music playback and GPS support.
