Sony Xperia Z3 now available from T-Mobile
The Sony Xperia Z3 is now available from T-Mobile. The manufacturer's flagship handset offers a 5.2 inch screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. Under the hood is a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 CPU, with the Adreno 330 GPU and 3GB of RAM on board. 16GB of native storage comes with the phone (of which 11.8GB is available to the user) and a 32GB variant will be offered as well. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those needing additional memory.

The rear camera on the phone measures 20.7MP with an aperture of f/2.0, allowing you to take great pictures, even under under low lighting conditions. The front-facing camera weighs in at 2.2MP. A 3100mAh battery packs enough juice to give you at least one full day without needing a charge. And at IP68 certified, the Xperia Z3 fights off dust and water. The phone is considered "Dust Tight" and will survive being submerged in 9.8 feet of water for as long as 30 minutes.

T-Mobile is offering the Sony Xpria Z3 at a price of $0 down with 24 monthly payments of $26.25. That works out to a retail price of $630 for the phone. Keep in mind that this is a completely different handset than the Sony Xperia Z3v that Verizon will soon have up for sale. That model combines the specs of the Xperia Z3 in a phone that resembles the Sony Xperia Z2.

If you were planning on buying it outright why not just get the international version from Amazon?

I do have the Z2 international version. However, at this pattern T-Mobile will have the Z4/5 when they release.

I would love to see what Z4 will bring. The Z series with even numbers are usually better :P odd numbers to me are just refresher. Hopefully AT&T would pick up Sony by the time Z4 releases.

Kind of gives me hope that my Z3c might ship early from Sony, though I'm not holding my breath for that.

I bought international z3c earlier this month and so happy I did, plus it was cheaper than buying through Sony USA

The article is wrong. It comes out on the 29th but you can pre order now. I even called the stores to be sure i didnt have the wrong date.

And so the True Z3 is released on T-Mobile, not that fake Z2-like Verizon version. Although specs are similiar, the rethought out asthetics and fit/finish is remarkable. The Z4 is truly going to be impressive next year I'm sure, love this new refined direction. As usual T-Mobile looks forward while Verizon looks backwards.

Even though the z3 shares many of the same specs as the z2, the "user experience" from what I've seen so far is much better.

T-Mo pre-orders always ship early, I ordered on Oct 18th next day air it was back-ordered on the 19th, processed on the 20th and shipped on the 21st. I received the Z3 on Oct 22nd. The Z3 is hands down the best device on the planet. I tried the Note 4 did not like it, way too much lag and poor battery life. Prior to the Note 4 I had the HTC One M8, to me the speakers sound better on the Z3. Like many folks across the net have said, pictures taken on the Z3 look much better when using manual mode. I am very satisfied.
