The unlocked version of the HSPA+ version of the Sony Xperia Z1 is already available in the United States, but if you’re waiting for a more carrier-friendly version, we have some good news for you. If you don’t remember, it was rumored earlier that Sony Xperia Z1 is hitting T-Mobile in the near future. It seems the rumors might be true as the handset was recently spotted at the Bluetooth SIG.
The handset was spotted at Bluetooth SIG with a model number C6916, which appears to be a T-Mobile variant. The earlier Sony Xperia Z had the same last two digits “16” (C6616).
Sony Xperia Z1 comes with a beautiful 5.2-inch full HD Triluminos display boasting a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and X-Reality for mobile. The handset is powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 chipset clocked at 2.3GHz with Adreno 330 GPU and 2GB RAM.
Other specifications include 16GB internal storage with a microSD card slot, 3,000 mAh battery and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean out of the box. The handset is IP58 and IP55 certified making it a dust and water-resistant handset. The most impressive feature is a 1/ 2.3-type 20.7 megapixel Exmor RS CMOS image sensor and BIONZ for mobile image processing engine.
There are no details about the launch and availability of the handset, but it seems that the handset will arrive soon in the US market. In addition, there are no details about the pricing of the handset, but we hope that it will carry a price tag close to the unlocked version. We’ll update you as soon as there’s more information about the launch and pricing of the T-Mobile variant.Filed Under: Android News
