Sony planning US Xperia Z3 event for 9 October

by XB on 25th September 2014

in Xperia Z3 series

sony-inviteSony Mobile is sending out invites to the US media for an event being held in New York on 9 October 2014. The invite has a #DemandGreat tagline hinting that we’re likely to hear about Sony’s US plans for the Xperia Z3 series. We already know that the Xperia Z3 is landing on T-Mobile US, but Sony may have secured the handset on additional carriers (Verizon maybe?) We’ll bring you word as soon as we hear more.

  • Whatever! I’m the truth


    people will be interested in iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4, Note edge and don’t give a shit about. Xperia Z3, for sure!!

  • Niek van Rijswijk

    Good, this is what Sony needs to do. Be like samsung: On every carrier /store you can get a samsung device. Some good marketing too and sony should be much better.

  • Wolfmachien

    FUCK the Z3, iphone 6 and the galaxy s5. overpriced pieces of shit with no fucking improvement over the previous version (Z3)

  • Ardesclarm665

    all best

    wooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwww rude

  • not another fanboy


  • Ethan ‘blaze’ Parker

    This shows Sony means serious business this time around!

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Leave him alone, Xperia Z3. It’s way more satisfying to watch a troll starve.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    Ever watch Sony’s promos/commercials before? Not just the ones for T.V’s and cellphones, but speakers and headphones, they’re great, amazing. Sony should already start pumping out commercials about their products in the U.S. Especially there Z3 line up and PS4 Remote Play.

    It’s obvious Sony isn’t well known in the U.S. for cellphones, but now with remote play they can stand on their PS4 and use that to boost their popularity, and hopefully income.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    To be honest, it’s more of the iPhone 6 than anything. Plus and Note 4 are phablets, and people who generally want a phablet will go for it. As for the Edge, it’s a limited edition device, and for now is mainly a very niche’ device.

  • BruceLeeRoyJenkins

    So you don’t like the Z3, iPhone 6, or S5. SO what’s the point in even being here at all?

    No news about xperia Z3X or any upcoming high-end phablet?

  • danon910

    That’s my birthday! Thank you Sony for the nice present in advance

  • nfs2010

    Agreed. PS4 remote play needs to advertised big time in the US. PS4 has been a huge hit here. All Sony needs is carrier support and ads flooding the TV & Radio channels. Considering Sony’s media business strength (films and all that) along with PS4 popularity, it should be easy for them. I just don’t get why they haven’t cracked the US market yet.

  • nfs2010

    Hopefully, they will get Z3 on AT&T this time. Come on Sony – before last year and Xperia Z series, ATT was the only major carrier that carried Sony phones (X10, Ion, Xperia TL). How’d you manage to lose ATT – WTH ? Z series could have sold so much better on ATT compared to those ill-fated phones :(

  • nfs2010

    Oh, forgot to mention Xperia play :P, which was carried by ATT & Verizon as well. Can’t forget that dude who regularly bitched here for Play 2 :P. He had a point, guys.

  • Wolfmachien

    I don’t like the z3 because i think it’s just a waste of resources to produce a new device that has the same features as the z2 except for a few software optimizations. It’s not entirely about the price of the device its about its perceived value from a consumer’s POV. I am willing to pay not just $ 847(Z3 price in india @ 52k INR) I will buy a phone worth more if I think the improvements are significant. The pricing should atleast look reasonable for a consumer to spend his money on the product. Do you think everyone is going to spend around 10K INR more if they know that there is a totally similar product from the same company with no difference in tech specs other than having an LTE modem? Sure, some people do like to spend money to get their hands on the latest device but are there enough of them to buy the phones in enough quantities for sony to make profits despite all the costs involved.

    I love sony because of its product design so It should be pretty clear why I hate the s5, the plastic back looks ridiculous and the design is pitiful at best. The iphone 6 is just another iphone. Don’t care for it much.

    P.S: I am a sony fanboy, have a cybershot K790, xperia arc, xperia z1 and I don’t have to wait to get a xiaomi, I already have a mi3.

    All I’m asking is is it justifiable if you just decide on the pricing of a product based mostly on the price of a competitors product? [iphone>wannabe iphone(s5)>Xperia z3(wanna be s5?)]

  • Tjaldid

    I seriously doubt that was true the picture was outrageously fake

  • Tjaldid

    Also a lower price point just to start with to get some market share

  • Guest

    I guess the European and Asian markets ain’t working out for SONY.

  • Dale Smart

    The phone is amazing a great upgrade from the Xperia T
    It came out today in England

  • ea

    wish you all the best!

    SONY #DemandGreat

  • Wolf0491

    Guess I’ll wait another 2 weeks before ordering see what they do.

  • TechGuyChris

    GO SONY!!!!!!

  • build6

    it doesn’t matter if they’re working out – you can’t be a serious player in the phone market with insignificant US presence. Xperia has to be in the US if it is going to have a future.

  • Whack

    Z3 is for xz user.. Xz1 n xz2 maybe could wait for version.. If you want bitching about the high price, have you seen how ridiculous expensive iphone 6 is? And if you don’t have money, Sony don’t force you to buy their every latest product.
    Stop bitching around.

  • Robert

    Xperia Z1/Z2/Z3 are best smartphone in the world!!!!!! iPhone 6 has fail!!!!!!!!

    You sound like you’re just jealous of other people who are more fortunate to be able to afford better smartphones. Sony doesn’t really care what price the competing products have, they price their devices according to the manufacturing and R&D costs. Same goes for Samsung. Do a proper research first before whining here (or anywhere else).

  • Reza

    Such a good move Sony..

  • Whatever I’m the truth!


    people will be interested in iPhone 6, 6 Plus and Galaxy Note 4, Note edge and don’t give a shit about. Xperia Z3, for sure!!

  • Wolfmachien

    yes, I am jealous of the people getting the new phone but wait, what is new? nothing except for an LTE modem.So, yes I am jealous.

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Poor people who still buys iPhone, come back when you feel better and I will show you a real smartphone with android :)))

  • Okazuma

    Too late.
    Sony should have done This event before che iphone’s launch

    Xperia hardware is great, but their software support is garbage.

  • Albert sims

    Actually sony xperia has been a trend setter but Noone will ever notice if they wait 2years to bring their phones to the us. I had a xperia z (the first water proof phone) for at least half a year before it ever came to t-mobile.

  • Erich Bergen

    Sony make the best Phones.
    Samsung and appel are worse.

  • paul4id

    This is a feature that we don’t even know yet whether it will work well or not, and restricts appeal to gamers when they have ideal phones for the normal masses.

    They would be better focusing specifically on the Z3 Compact and its small yet efficient dimensions compared to the competition yet maintaining powerful performance, huge battery life, camera,waterproofing, and cheaper.

  • US Citizen

    Give me a z3 compact in the US or I will end up buying a different company!

  • Timbo1

    Only took them 4 tries….

  • Jumbo

    Damn… this is a good move by Sony… I’m sure a lot of iphone 6 users are going to jump ship, the X3 is not bendable and you do not have to worry about wearing tight jeans too!

  • chenga91

    Please put it on AT&T

  • ki11ak3nn

    I dont have a PS4. Xbox One. I still plan on getting the Z3, but remote play won’t work for me.

  • ki11ak3nn

    You have to realize though that not everyone likes small phones. Sony should advertise for both phones. So people can choose which one they want.

  • ki11ak3nn

    iPhones are for teenagers and old people. The Z3 is a real phone, for adults. Doesn’t matter about the iPhone coming out. I’m sure the Z3 will still sell well. Only competition is the Note 4.

  • Okazuma

    I hope you’ll right.

  • phil g

    Here’s Sony’s chance to make an impact on the US market. I hope they have at lest 2 carriers signed to carry the Z3. Also price will be key, I think Sony should undercut Apple and Samsung to make people notice. Sony needs to back the Z3 with a solid marketing campaign. Hopefully this is a step in the right direction for Sony mobile in the US.

  • XxRampage07xX

    I am wondering… if Sony would bring its Xperia Z3 Compact to US too or just Xperia Z3. Because I prefer Z3 Compact more.

  • Devraj

    Happy birthday mate….Stay blessed!!

  • Sumo

    People will ONLY be interested in the iphone 6 due to its ‘bendable’ qualities… If you want a living phone boomerang… the iphone 6 is for you. If youw ant a phone which doesn’t bend and has way better specs then the iphone 6, X3 is for you. It’s a choice. Now that’s the truth!

  • Jumbo

    Hey… every company does that, but at least it’s not too late right?

    The European and the Japanese market is Sony’s stronghold in terms that they get 60% of their sales from the region. So they want to focus too on the American market slowly to get everything right in one go instead of rushing and doing it half-baked.

    So whats the point for you to whine over here? It’s not that Sony will be like “Oooh! That wolf guy is whining coz he’s jealous. Let’s throw him a truck of XZ3”
    Be more mature man.

  • Rakus

    Ive had iphone 4 and 5. Now a note 3, Ive waited for the Note4 and Iphone 6 to be announced/released and now my last phone im waiting to see is the Nexus 6. Then i will make my decision on my next device. But if sony comes to AT&T with the Z3……no contest id be getting that beautiful beast. and id use remote play and die of happiness. PLEASE COME TO AT&T SONY!:)
