Sony’s current flagship smartphone Xperia Z2 is now available for purchase in the United States. Sony’s official online store is offering the unlocked Xperia Z2 in the US for $699.99. The Japanese manufacturer started selling the handset across Europe and some other countries in April-May and the Xperia Z2 has officially arrived in the US in about 3 months which is pretty soon considering the company’s track record.
Earlier, Sony had confirmed that its unlocked Xperia Z2 would be available in the US only through its online store. However, later, a leaked image of the Xperia Z2 was spotted with the Verizon logo and speculations were rife whether the device will be available through Verizon. Well, this seems unlikely now at least for the present.
