The upcoming James Bond movie Spectre will showcase a lot of Sony technology. The recent Miss Moneypenny TV advert was used to show off the Sony Xperia Z5 and RX100 IV camera for example. However, despite the Xperia Z5 officially being the ‘Bond phone’ for the movie the handset won’t make it to all regions around the world.
In the United States, there is no sign of the Xperia Z5 launching either unlocked or through a carrier right now. We recently brought word that the Xperia Z3+ may be landing in the US soon (most likely unlocked) and now there is new evidence to back that up.
The Sony ‘Made for Bond’ promotional website lists some of the key Sony kit. In the UK version of the website, the Xperia Z5 features prominently at the top of the page. However, on the same site for the US, the Xperia Z3+ is featured instead (and interestingly at the bottom of the list.) Whether this means that the Xperia Z5 isn’t landing in the US anytime soon remains to be seen, however there’s no doubting that Sony Xperia US fans are getting short-changed again.
