Sony Xperia Z4, plus unannounced LG G Pad X and iPad mini 4 reportedly headed to Verizon
Verizon is seemingly getting ready to release several interesting devices, including the Sony Xperia Z4, two unannounced tablets from Apple and LG, and a new Desire from HTC. According to Evan Blass (aka @evleaks), all these devices are "coming to Verizon", though there's no word on exactly when they'll be released.

We don't know if the Xperia Z4 that's headed to Verizon is similar to the Japanese version of the handset. Sony is supposedly preparing a global variant of the Z4, so we assume that's the one that will be sold by Verizon.

As for the upcoming Verizon tablets that we mentioned above, these are, reportedly, the Apple iPad mini 4, and the LG G Pad X 8.3. Since the iPad mini 3 was announced in October 2014, we're not expecting the iPad mini 4 to be unveiled before October this year. We don't know anything about the LG G Pad X 8.3, but this is likely the successor to the LG G Pad 8.3 from 2013 (which Verizon is currently selling for $129.99 on contract).

Finally, it's said that the new Desire that Verizon will launch is the HTC Desire 526, a cheap, 4.7-inch (540 x 960 pixels) Android KitKat handset that's already available in India.

Hopefully, we'll soon hear more about Verizon's plans regarding these devices.

Apple needs to buy AMOLEDs from Samsung. Not that iPhone's LCDs are bad because I like them very much, but with S5 Samsung raised the bar very high for other displays. It would be great if 6S had one

No, I ran out of ideas :( But I don't think there is any reason to wait for Z4 as it will probably run underclocked all the time so the performance will be on similar level to Z3. I didn't mean to troll

i've been waiting for a Z3 for At&T since it was first announced. Sony keeps losing by not going with the carrier. Not everybody wants an iphone or a Galaxy.

Sorry people, I am sure will Sony will happily sell millions of phones to you guys in the States! Unfortunately, there is only one major issue stopping that happening and it is not Sony's fault, as the gatekeepers in the States are the Network provider much like here in the UK. The majority of phones go to the Networks who in turn shift them in great numbers to their customers and in the process subsidising the costs. Me, gave that game up last year and buy my handsets Sim Free so not tied to any networks! Don't blame Sony, blame Verizon, AT&T, TMobile or whoever.

No I still blame Sony.. Sony, just like all other mfg has a chance to sell their products on the carrier but choose not to. Also Sony being Sony makes 5 million variants that look the same but have different bands. Make one damn phone with all the bands and be done

I hope the LgXpad 8.3 has a 805sd,with 420 gpu set up ,stay quad core, soon as I can find the specs an price which will be 500$ as long as it has350ppi,and1080 dosplay,a 4200-4500mah battery should get it through 12to14 hours straight video,6hours of on screen time with 4g or wifi bout 8,that's hoping they go big and smart,no1440 screens on it or they will have to stick a 5000mah in there for the 100 more ppi,and it'll be as much as the samsung galaxy s10.5,which I still might get but if I can get the Xpad in 2 months I'll wait and see,and I still like the 8.3ggpad with s4 secs,but its almost been two years for a nice tablet from LG,it'll go nice with g4 and 55 inch LG led:lcd tv only paying 502 a month for 30 gigs and 7 phone and a hotspot device,so at 500 or 600 usd, as long as it stays a 8 inch tablet that's faster than my g3 and a little brighter with a little different speaker placement,yea I'll pay the 40 bucks a month more for this or it'll have to be the sammy s 10.5 whinch would be same price at 7 months if it has the 815 octo in it I'd make an exception especially with the 430gpu in it,wgo knows maybe the 810 will be in it an it'll work with this tablet better than 5.5 inch phones,but it's probably 805 815 or their own in house chip to try it out on their Xpad,that make sense show off their in house chip ,show us they don't need snapdragon on everyone.time to look around the blogs and see what the buzz is.

i think that the SD810 would work well for tablets, because tablets have more TDP headroom, so the SD810 wouldn't throttle as much.

Just bring the Global Version Z4. I'm sure a lot of people don't mind the Omnibalance because it still holds up greatly well against competitor. IMX230 would be nice though.
