Yesterday, when T-Mobile was the only carrier announced as getting the Sony Xperia Z3 this coming fall, it was assumed Magenta would have exclusivity on the device in the US. But according to PC Mag, that might not be true.
PC Mag is reporting today that they have received a document detailing the Xperia Z3 as coming to Verizon under the name Sony Xperia Z3v. According to the document the Verizon variant will feature prominent Verizon branding (duh), and come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. The document also depicts the Verizon Z3 as having Amazon Music, the Amazon AppStore and Kindle preloaded on the device.
If Verizon does indeed end up carrying the Sony Xperia Z3, it will be the first Sony device to grace the carrier’s shelves since the Xperia Play three years ago in 2011. This may be just what Sony needs to gain some momentum and take a chunk out of Samsung’s market share.
