Sony has finally decided to sell the unlocked Sony Xperia Z1 LTE, released back at the IFA 2013 in Berlin, in the US. Customers interested in the handset can order one directly from Sony’s website for $619.99 for the 16GB model in all three colors: black, white and purple.
At the moment, only the black color option is available with the remaining two colors expected to reach the shores by the end of this month. If you can’t recall, Sony has already released the HSPA+ version of the Sony Xperia Z1 in the US, with T-Mobile having exclusivity of the handset.
As a refresher, the Sony Xperia Z1 rocks a 5-inch 1080p display with Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.3GHz and 2GB of RAM. On the storage side, the handset comes with 16GB of storage with microSD card slot. Other features include 20MP camera with G Lens, 2MP front-facing camera, WiFi, Bluetooth and a 3,000 mAh battery to provide enough juice for the handset.
Unfortunately, the product listing mentions Android 4.2 Jelly Bean as its OS out of the box, but it’s worth noting that Android 4.4 KitKat is rolling out for the handset in some regions, with Android 4.3 in some.
It’s also worth mentioning that Sony has already launched its successor, the Xperia Z2, which is set to arrive in the coming weeks in most regions worldwide.
