Sony's information on the Xperia Z3 and related devices has been coming out fast and furious, but we've been left waiting to hear about which of these devices will actually make it over to the US. Well, T-Mobile has announced that it will offer the Z3 online and in stores this fall.

No US carrier picked up the Z2, but T-Mobile carried the Z1s previously, so this announcement isn't without precedent. The carrier may be the least surprising one to pick up the phone, but it's still comforting to know for sure that at least one launch partner is set in stone.


Here's T-Mobile announcement post. Better yet, here's an unboxing video, complete with T-Mobile branding.

There's a rumor that Sprint will also carry a high-end Xperia device this fall, but we're still waiting for an official announcement. We will keep you updated as soon as we find out more.

    Tmobile has come pretty far. They use to have to wait a few months before getting these new devices.

      T-Mobile is making a pretty strong comeback after the 2011 mistakes.

    As lame as this sounds, more manufacturers/carriers should learn from Apple. That would make so much sense in this day and age. Announce the flagship alongside with a release date on the major carriers that are going to be carrying it. Maybe one day.

    • Ambroos

      Sony isn't focusing on the US. They won't make announcements about US availability of a phone on a European electronics event. At IFA, finally, we're hearing prices in euro instead of dollars. Let us have at least IFA and Sony, and go enjoy your everything else you have available that we don't.

      • Taylor00

        I really can't care less about anything Sony in the smartphone world, hence why I said other manufacturers/carriers. But OK.

    I think they should have reduced the top and bottom bezels just a little bit more.

    • Cris de Oliveira

      Xperia z3 compact has screen 4.6 inches. Iphone 5s 4. ;) Sony made a good job! (Y) Beautiful device.

      • joser116

        Yeah that's what I meant. I put the picture to show that even though compact Z3 has a bigger display, the phones size is not much bigger than iPhone.

    • Ryan Callihan

      I think that's a good size comparatively. You're comparing a device with a 5.2" screen to one with a 4" inch screen. The Z3 is a hair bigger than the 5S. Wait until the iPhone 6 drops and it mammoths the Z3 even though it'll only have a 4.7" screen..

      • joser116

        The picture is of the Z3 Compact.

        • Ryan Callihan

          ...and you said that in your original comment. Excuse me. I just can't read hahaha my b

          • joser116

            I didn't. I replaced "it" to "Z3 Compact" earlier to make it clearer. I can see how you might have thought it was the full Z3 considering the article is about it.

  • Jephri

    The nations best carrier keeps getting better.

  • Burrdoh

    Why not the compact?! Ugh.

  • randaddy

    Will the Tmobile variant also flaunt the dreaded locked bootloader a la Z1s? If so, please avoid it like the plague. Source: I bought a Z1s and regretted not getting the Z1.

  • Stuart Anderson

    So disappointed when phones have IP65/68 ratings and thus covered ports but dont have qi. WTF, Sony/T-Mo.

    • Jonathan Wagner

      The Xperia Z1 has wireless charging. The Z3 does as well.

      • Stuart Anderson

        Its not mentioned on sony's specs page. Nor on gsmarena.

        • Joemin97

          Go to Sony Mobile page and it shows a optional case that has wireless charging capability, kinda like nokia did with their phone add on backs.

      • Aooga

        ?? No it doesn't. I just tried putting the Z1 on a Qi charger and nothing at all happened. Do you mean the port on the side?

  • donster

    apple now with rounded edge. sony now with rounded edge. Nokia 925 already with rounded edge

  • Sky

    Compare Sony Xperia Z3 and HTC One M8

    • ki11ak3nn

      The M8 isn't that bad to hold though. I thought it would with all that bezel from the speakers. So this is pretty nice news. Can't wait to get my hands on a Z3.

    I can't wait for the Z3 to come out. It just sucks when UK and Germany get pre orders and here in the U.S. we don't get squat!! Sony really doesn't care about the US.....which is why they plan on being 2 billion in the hole. Sony shouldn't get scared of Samsung, LG, HTC, and Apple. They have the better hardware. Better design. Better product all around. You just have to give us a way of being able to buy your device and make ads. That's it. People will flock to buy the Z3 if they know about it. Water resistant, 20.7 MP camera, great battery!! Things people care about. They'll see the Z3 is better than any Galaxy or iPhone. That's just my 2 cents. I hope the Z3/Z3c does well here in the U.S.
