Sony to launch new Xperia Z4v handset in US, through Verizon

In a Tuesday announcement, Sony Corp revealed that it will soon be launching its new Android flagship smartphone -- the Xperia Z4v -- in the US. The handset will work exclusively on the Verizon Wireless network.

According to the announcement, the new Xperia Z4v handset -- with the 'v' in the name standing for Verizon's exclusivity -- will likely hit the US markets next summer. The expected cost of the handset will be $199.

Some of the key specifications of the Xperia Z4v handset include a 5.2-inch screen with 2,560-by-1,600 resolution; a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor; 3GB of RAM; a 20.7-megapixel primary camera; a 5.1-megapixel 'selfie' camera; a 3,000mAh battery; and 32GB of onboard storage capacity, with microSD slot to expand storage to 128GB.

The Xperia Z4v handset measures 5.7 by 2.8 by 0.33 inches; and it runs Android OS version 5.0 'Lollipop' out of the box. For music lovers, the Xperia Z4v has been paired with a new hi-resolution Bluetooth codec called LDAC, which can only be supported with Sony's new MDR-1ABT headphones.

Moreover, boasting the same gaming capabilities as last year-launched Xperia Z3v model, the new Xperia Z4v comes with a feature called 'Remote Play' which gives the handset the capability to serve as a second screen for the PlayStation 4 console.
