T-Mobile has removed the Sony Xperia Z3 from its product portfolio. The news came directly from T-Mobile’s Twitter account in response to a customer looking for Sony’s flagship device.
It’s quite surprising to see the handset getting axed so early — it launched on the Magenta carrier in October last year so it’s roughly six months since its launch on the carrier.
Verizon also launched its version of the handset as the Sony Xperia Z3v, but it’s available on the Big Red as we speak.
This is definitely going to create problems for the Japanese manufacturer as the company is trying to penetrate the US market, but with moves like these, it’s going to be a little difficult for the company to create a solid footprint in the market.
This could be in anticipation of the upcoming Sony Xperia Z4 which is expected to see the light of the day in the coming weeks. We’ve seen a number of leaks regarding the Xperia Z4 in the past few weeks. The handset passed though the FCC lately, and is expected to bring a 5.2-inch display sporting a resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, a Snapdragon 810 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, 20MP camera for photos and videos, 5MP front-facing camera and Android 5.0 Lollipop as its operating system out of the box.
We’ll update you if we get to hear anything more about the launch of the alleged Sony Xperia Z4.
