UPDATE: A PR rep for Sony reached out to us to say that the date displayed on the Xpera Z4v site "is not accurate" and that there are no official announcements regarding the Z4v's launched at this time.
When Sony announced the Xperia Z4v last month, it spilled all of the device’s spec details but neglected to mention its launch date. Now it looks like we’ve got a date to circle on our calendars.
A Sony promo site for the Xperia Z4v encourages readers to “experience the freedom to play August 13,” suggesting that that’s the date on which the Xperia Z4v will launch at Verizon Wireless. That date just so happens to be a Thursday, the day of the week on which Verizon typically releases its new handsets.
As a quick refresher, the Xperia Z4v includes a 5.2-inch 2560x1440 display, Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a microSD slot, Quick Charge 2.0, Qi and PMA wireless charging, and a 2930mAh battery. It also packs a 5-megapixel wide angle front-facing camera and a 20.7-megapixel rear camera, the latter of which offers a wide angle lens and SteadyShot image stabilization. All of that is wrapped in a body that’s IP65/68 certified for resistance to dust and water.
Neither Sony nor Verizon have spilled pricing details for this Android 5.0.2 smartphone, but if the August 13 launch date holds true, it shouldn’t be too much longer before all of the Xperia Z4v’s info is revealed.
