The Sony Xperia ZQ is the Brazilian version of the Xperia ZL (C650X). The model on offer in Brazil appears to be the C6506 SKU, with support for the same LTE bands as the North American SKU (Bands 1, 2, 4, 5 and 17). We’re still not clear, why Sony Brazil felt the need to rename the Xperia ZL to Xperia ZQ in the region, but the handset offers no differences from what we can see.
The Xperia ZQ has gone up for pre-order on the Sony Store Brazil site for BRL 2,049 (£671, €790, $1028). Pre-orders will stay live until 21 April, with stock shipping the day after. Seems like quite a hefty price to pay compared to other regions. Anyone Brazilian readers planning to pre-order?
