Sony is preparing to launch the Xperia ZL (C6506) in Canada during April, but judging by a tweet from the Sony Canada team, there is a chance that the Xperia Z is also on the horizon. When asked the question, Sony Canada responded that the handset will be arriving “this summer!”
This may not be hard confirmation, but there have been rumours for a while that the Xperia Z may see a North American launch during the summer. As of now, we haven’t seen evidence of a C6606 variant of the Xperia Z which would have the compatible North American LTE bands, apart from a PlayStation Mobile listing. If anything comes of this, we’ll be the first to let you know.
Update: Sony Canada has got in touch to confirm that they were referring to the Xperia Tablet Z instead of the Xperia Z. They also mentioned that the “timing for Xperia Z smartphone has not been announced at this time“.
