Leaked Verizon screenshot shows that the Sony Xperia Z2 is still coming to the carrier

Leaked Verizon screenshot shows that the Sony Xperia Z2 is still coming to the carrier
For those of you who have given up hope of seeing the Sony Xperia Z2 wearing Verizon colors, a screenshot sent to us by a loyal reader, shows that the dream might not be dead after all. The image shows that Verizon is training reps on Sony's current flagship model. While T-Mobile offered the Sony Xperia Z and the Sony Xperia Z1, back in March, Verizon was rumored to be getting the Sony Xperia Z2.

But a month later, the Xperia Z2 was no longer rumored to be heading to any U.S. carrier, and was expected to be available via Sony's online store only. Still, we passed along a couple of pictures showing a Verizon branded Xperia Z2, including one from Sony that was quickly removed.

The question that many might have, is why would Verizon decide now to offer the Sony Xperia Z2, when the Xperia Z3 could be coming as soon as September?

Thanks for the anonymous tip!

If the phone comes and has 32gig of storage I'll get it over the g3 if not I'm not sure what I'll do. the z2 is still arguably the best phone out so I wouldn't say its too late but it should of been planned a lot better we will see how vzw gimps this device!

no it's too late, too close to the release of the Z3. They should just cancel releasing the Z2 and go right to the Z3. The only Z2 I'd buy at this point is the compact and even than I'd rather wait for Z3 C. Sony needs to step up their game, they haven't released a phone to Verizon since 2011.

If the phone was actually decent it would have fair sales but the camera is not all that good for all those mega pixels, the phone is to big and the screen on my S5 is better. I wanted this phone 5 months ago but like other comments TOO LATE!!

Actually the camera is great with the right settings! Professional photographers have told me how great my pictures are, and I'm not even professionally trained. Even my friends say my pictures look more like pre loaded screen savers! Have you even used a Z2? I've used the S5 and Z2 and the S5's screen is amazing, but so is the Z2's! And I actually prefer the Z2 cause I don't like my phone looking like a cartoon haha.

I think what you said still can be believed. Because according to DoxMark Z2 is the best performing cameraphone for stills joint first place with the Nokia 808 Pureview. And 3rd place when it comes to 1080p video recording just behind its predecessor the Z1 (2nd place) and the S5 (1st place). Even so I was very impressed with Sony's SteadyShot because its even better than other phones with OIS especially during walking motion, and as far as i know Sony's digital SteadyShot is the best video stabilization in mobile phones. But i'm 100% sure when it comes to manual setting no other phones can beat 808 or 1020 at least for now.

It may be a bit late but I would still consider this phone as an addition to my M8, hell i'd still buy a Z1 compact if made available to verizon

You really think that the delay is Sony's fault are you forgetting who there dealing with?? If it was up to Sony the phone would of been out months ago Verizon was prolly 5 weeks trying to decide where to put there ugly ass logo and massive 4GLTE logo like we don't know what that is yet!

it's both their faults, sony is stupid for thinking they wouldn't do good in the states on the largest carrier when they already knew how popular their devices are

i have the Z2 on ATT and I love it. Great camera and plenty speedy. I do wish they would've gone with 32gb internal storage but it hasn't really been a hindrance so far. By the time it's an issue, I'm sure I will be using another phone. Kinda thinking about getting the G3 since ATT just announced it will be in stores this week.

I bought it on swappa a couple months ago. It has all the radios for AT&T LTE and works great. I haven't had any problems with the Z2. Camera is solid and I really like having a dedicated camera button.
