Like the global version of the Xperia Z3, the new Verizon model is a waterproof phone with a 20.7MP camera and support for PlayStation 4 RemotePlay (which lets you stream games from your PS4 to your phone over a WiFi network).

Most of the specs for this model are the same as for other Xperia Z3 model, which includes a 5.2 inch, full HD display, 3GB of RAM, a 3100mAh battery, and a microSD card slot. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor.

The Verizon model ha a slightly different case though, and supports wireless charging. It’ll also probably come preloaded with some Verizon apps and wallpapers.

  1. I was hoping for the Z3 Compact to come to Verizon. I’m going to pass this Z3v.
