Is the Sony Xperia Z2 coming to Verizon as an exclusive?
Now that the new HTC One (M8) has been introduced and is available at Verizon, customers of the nation's largest carrier might soon have another high-end Android phone to consider. According to a report out of Japan, the Sony Xperia Z2 is heading to Verizon. The report states that the Sony D6508 (which is allegedly Verizon's version of the flagship model) had received Wi-Fi certification on March 3rd. The phone will support LTE/CDMA2000/WCDMA/GSM connectivity.

The Sony Xperia Z2 will launch in the second quarter. Surprisingly, it will be a Verizon exclusive. Considering that T-Mobile had offered the Sony Xperia Z and the Sony Xperia Z1, it had been expected that the nation's fourth largest mobile operator would be adding the Xperia Z2 to its line-up.

If the report is true, the Xperia Z2 will be the first Sony branded smartphone to grace the shelves at Verizon since the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY back in 2011.

Thanks for the tip, Ryan!
