Xperia Z launch nears, phone pops up on PC Companion and SUS

by XB on 11th February 2013

in Xperia Z and Xperia ZL

The Sony Xperia Z has popped up on the company’s PC Companion and Sony Update Service (SUS) software, highlighting that the launch is getting closer. Four variants of the Sony Xperia Z are listed – the LTE global version (C6603), the HSPA+ global version (C6602), the Japanese version (SO-02E) and lastly the ‘Xperia Z’, which gives no clues on how it differs from the others. There is no Xperia ZL listed either, so its launch is likely to fall after the Xperia Z.

    I love my Xperia Z (SO-02E). I hope everyone who wants it gets it as soon as possible

  • Nad

    How can you tell if its LTE or HSPA+ version if preordered from the UK Sony website?

  • yoyo

    I agree

  • David Lettinga

    I can’t find whether or not this phone will work on Verizon’s LTE or not

  • I agree too :)

  • Dacha

    It will not. The Z only works on GSM networks.

  • Moe

    that’s going to be the C6606 (AT&T) LTE and hspa+

  • Moe

    That’s going to be Xperia Z C6606 which is compatible with AT&T LTE and HSPA+

  • lovebmw

    No news about the z6606? It could be an American LTE version

  • lovebmw

    LTE non USA frequency will not work in the USA

  • Can someone tells me which one should i get?
    I’m from Saudi Arabia and we barely have LTE in the area I live in. If I bought the LTE one will 3g works too. Right now I’m in the US and I don’t want to buy their Xperia Z (AT&T logo) is ugly in the phone.

    Why Sony why

  • Check what bands your carrier works on, and get the correlating american one.
    C6602 works on the same HDSPA bands as the C6603 but also 1700 and 1900.
    And yes, both versions will work on HDSPA and GSM if your carrier uses the bands supported.
