The Sony Xperia Z3 was launched back in September 2014 by Sony during the IFA event. Subsequently, the device was launched in the U.S. through T-Mobile and later via Verizon as the Xperia Z3V. And just under 7 months after its release, T-Mobile has decided to stop selling the smartphone altogether.
The confirmation was provided by the official Twitter page of T-Mobile which redirected users to a page which only lists refurbished models of the Sony Xperia Z and the Z1S. This is a big setback for Sony as it has been striving to make an impact on the U.S. mobile market for quite some time now.
Until the Xperia Z3, all Sony flagships were only available through T-Mobile in an unlocked and off contract avatar. But with that option no longer available, customers will have to purchase the handset directly from Sony by paying the full retail price or head over to Verizon Wireless and get the Xperia Z3V.
Will you be impacted by the disappearance of the Sony flagship from T-Mobile’s online store?
