Some of you may remember that Verizon and Sony were planning to deliver the Xperiz Z4v in the United States. If you were planning on sporting one of those devices this summer, we have some bad news for you. Verizon and Sony announced that they have cancelled plans to launch the device since they missed their summer release target.
“Verizon will no longer be launching Xperia Z4v, however we are committed to supporting Sony Mobile’s product portfolio and will support existing products,” Verizon said in a statement. “Sony is a strategic partner as we continue having ongoing discussions together as part of our future portfolio.”
Verizon announced the device back in June but that was the last anyone heard about it. The Z4v was supposed to sport a Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 20-megapixel camera, wireless charging, and a WQHD 5.2-inch display (2560 x 1440 pixels) that actually would’ve surpassed the regular Z4 in resolution, according to The Verge.
The Z4 is long behind Sony, who has moved on to the Z5 series outside the United States. The new phones include fingerprint authentication, an improved camera, and in the highest-end model, an ultra-sharp 4K display.
