Verizon cancels Xperia Z4v launch

by XB on 5th October 2015

in Xperia Z4 and Z3+ series

Verizon cancels Xperia Z4vThe omens weren’t good and now Verizon has made it official – it will no longer be launching the Xperia Z4v. Verizon has released a statement confirming the cancellation, but it extends an olive branch by stating it still remains “committed to supporting Sony Mobile’s product portfolio”.

Does this disappoint you? Were you looking forward to the Verizon Xperia Z4v? Given that we’ve seen no news of the Xperia Z5 being picked up by US carriers, does this mean we could see Verizon picking it up instead? Sound out in the comments below.

Verizon statement on Xperia Z4v cancellation

Verizon will no longer be launching Xperia Z4v, however we are committed to supporting Sony Mobile’s product portfolio and will support existing products. Sony is a strategic partner as we continue having ongoing discussions together as part of our future portfolio.

Thanks Pace!

    Sony just wasted money making this phone… Hay, I hope Sony’s fortunes will turn around sooner

    Too bad, was looking for a QHD IP 68 phone, now I may not ever get one on VZW.

  • Igor Eisberg

    Funny thing, that is…

  • PoweredBySony

    maybe the didn’t make the phone at all

  • Gitarooman

    Thank God!

    It’s a pity for Verizon customers because their versions of the Xperia line are normally better than the international ones. If this was cancelled to give place to a Z5 with built-in Qi charging, Verizon customers will be better served in the end.

    That said, if there was mass-production of the Z4V, Verizon better pay Sony for the costs.

    good bye and so long. it was probably going to be garbage.
    Sony move on and bring the Xperia Z5 family over to the U.S.
    I don’t want to but this phone from over seas.
    and I bet that most of verizon users are shitsung or crapple users.

  • Svnjay

    They did.

    The Z5 Premium is supposedly to make its way to Verizon, and it was tipped by inside information from Verizon.

    Probably Sony figured out that buying only thousands of 2k panels does not justify the cost, so in the end, they will just scrap z4v, and use the technology to make z5v instead.

  • jamie evans

    If Verizon is going to carry the Z5 Premium, it’s OK. and Z5v with QHD would be cool

  • Less lagdroid and less horrid sony quality in the world – the better.

    Companies make profits and they also try to cut their losses when the market is not responding.

    A few vocal and diehard Sony fanboys will not help seize market share from other rival companies.

    Over here, the Xperia Z5 is still nowhere to be seen in telco shops. Meanwhile, the new iPhones are mostly sold out (especially the rose gold models), and Samsung is super aggressive with its advertisements and its sales reps are found everywhere.

    If Sony does not want to be serious about making top Android phones, it should sell its mobile business to someone else who is serious (e.g. Huawei and the Nexus 6P).

    If Sony want to play it safe (Japanese notorious conservative mentality, I’ve worked for the Japs before so I know), and be content with revenue coming from its Playstation, Bond movies and cameras, then please let Xperia go the way of Vaio.

    It’s so funny that i have to fall of my bed :”D

  • Alvin

    just prototype/pre production units

  • Emil Oskarsson

    Ehm no I don’t want the Xperia products to fall in any other hands then sonys so…. Too bad people buy shitsung and crapple phones :/

  • Geese Howard

    Time to bring the real gun Verizon – Z5. DO IT FOR FUCKS SAKE!

  • Whats the funny thing? It hasn’t been updated since June?

  • I actually look at this as good news that model was known to have over heating issues and the Z5 is already out too. I would rather they release a Z5v which by Verizon’s statement sounds like that might happen.

    “supporting Sony Mobile’s product portfolio”
    that’s lukewarm. CDMA is shit. and that all phones don’t support all bands of LTE is stupid.
