The white paper for the Sony Xperia Z has been published. It confirms that the Xperia Z will come in two variants:
– model number C6603 will support LTE (bands 1, 3, 5, 7, 8, 20), HSPA+ & GSM
– model number C6602 will support HSPA+ & GSM bands only

Each model supports slightly different HSPA+ bands too. The C6603 model supports 850 (Band V), 900 (Band VIII), 2100 (Band I) MHz. The C6602 model supports the same above frequencies along with the 1700 (Band IV) and 1900 (Band II) MHz bands. This means T-Mobile USA users should be able to use 3G on this phone without issues.

The white paper also confirms that the embedded battery capacity is 2,330mAh giving 11 hours of GSM talk time. As expected, it will use a micro SIM card like most new flagships. The only other interesting nugget we came across is that whilst the Xperia Z will launch with 16GB of internal storage, a whopping 5GB will be used for firmware alone. This means that you will be left with 11GB for apps and media.
