Sony Xperia T2 Ultra headed to T-Mobile?

When Sony announced the Xperia T2 Ultra in January, it said that the handset would be available in markets like Asia and Africa. But it looks like the new giant Xperia will also be released in the US.

According to notorious leakster @evleaks, the Xperia T2 Ultra is headed to T-Mobile USA. For now, there is no word on when the handset will be launched at T-Mobile, and neither on how much it’s going to cost.

T-Mobile has been a good partner to Sony lately, releasing a few smartphones made by the Japanese company - the latest being the Xperia Z1S. So adding the T2 Ultra to its lineup won’t come as a huge surprise.

Unlike the Z1S, the Xperia T2 Ultra is not a high-end handset, and it’s not waterproof. It offers midrange features, including a 6-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, LTE, NFC, a 13MP rear camera, quad-core 1.6GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery. The T2 Ultra is quite thin, measuring 165.2 x 83.8 x 7.65 mm, and it appears that it will run Android 4.3 at launch. Depending on price, this could be a successful device. We’ll let you know more when we have new details.

I'm awaiting that day so I can quickly trade my Z1s in for it. Z2 is THE phone to have in my mind right now. I'll pass on the S5, but am quite curious on the G3 and if LG can keep up their upward swing.

Last device on Verizon was Xperia Play 3G, and it was a flop. I'm pretty sure AT&T carried it as well. If Sony can put this on all four carriers like HTC, Samsung and LG do, they can step up and sell more devices.

Nokia does the same thing. They only carrier their flagship phones on one or two carriers

Didn't Sony or some guy from Sony say the company wasn't ready to fight in the US market? I remember reading that somewhere. It was no more than 3 months ago, if I remember correctly.

You also have to remember that it is a two way relationship. Sony is not a primary tier company when it comes to phones. They have not typically faired well in the US so why would a carrier take a gamble and spend marketing on a phone and phone company that hasn't faired so well.

:-/ Like I've said before, with specs like this it better be cheaper than the Nexus 5 and at max only $100 more than the 8 GB Moto G at $179. I don't care that the screen is big it's not worth more than the $350 Nexus 5 16 GB....

If you want same size: Nexus 7 4G (2012) is $200. Nexus 7 LTE (2013) is about $350. You can buy both on Amazon now. Very few people would buy T2 Ultra if it's more than $300.

The t2 Ultra isn't so mid-range, don't forget it has a 13mp camera, and premium screen, I don't think it's so mid range, resolution is irrelevant, although if they had used the s600 rather than the s400 and I would have purchased this.

Sorry for asking, but how is the screen premium?

Compare it to the old Z Ultra and you'll see that it's mid-range.

this is midrange, performance will be on par with xperia Z but lower in 3d gaming. Wish sony would quickly make another variant of this nice phone but make it have snapdragon800/tegra4 (not 801, 805 or 4i) and 32gb on-board storage "Xperia T2 Ultra Plus" or "Xperia T2 Ultra Gaming Edition" with 500-550$ unlocked price tag ^_^

why is it saying 1.6ghz here when the official one is only 1.4ghz? Ive done some web digging and it seems sony is underclocking this phone worldwide at 1.4ghz (Max is really up to 1.6ghz). Is T-Mobile getting a better version? Sony announced the Xperia T2 Ultra is to be available here at Asia-Pacific for $430 Single Sim LTE Unlocked. Dual Sim 3G Only Variant is TBA.
