Verizon to offer the Sony Xperia Z3v October 23rd for $199.99 on contract
Okay Verizon subscribers, this is the moment you've waited for ever since it looked like you would have the opportunity to buy the Sony Xperia Z2 on contract. Of course, that never happened, although you did get the opportunity to buy the Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. But today, we can tell you that Sony has announced the Sony Xperia Z3v for Verizon. The device will launch October 23rd and will be priced at $199.99 on contract.

Sony has been relying on T-Mobile to bring its handsets to the states. The Sony Xperia Z and Sony Xperia Z1s were both offered by the nation's fourth largest carrier. T-Mobile is also expected to offer the Sony Xperia Z3, although no launch date has been announced.

The Sony Xperia Z3v is a model made exclusively for Verizon. It offers a 5.2 inch Triluminos screen with resolution of 1080 x 1920. A quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 is under the hood with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 128GB capacity microSD slot is available for those who need more memory. The rear-facing camera weighs in at 20.7MP (with 4K video recording) and a 3200mAh battery keeps the lights on for as long as three days. With its IP68 certification, the Sony Xperia Z3v offers protection from dust and water. And the phone can connect to a PlayStation 4 Dual-Shock controller to play the console's games.

Even though the Xperia Z3v will have feartures from the Sony Xperia Z3, the phone will have the body from the Sony Xperia Z2. Check out the Sony Xperia Z3v by clicking on the video below.
