Even though Sony has an international presence when it comes to consumer electronics, the Japanese manufacturer's devices haven't made that much of an impact here in the US. Even though the company's Xperia lineup comes with specifications matching any top notch Android flagship out there, choices for consumers are too many and Sony hasn't been able to develop a strong consumer base. So when the company chose to launch the Xperia Z4 in a low key manner this year, it was evident that things needed to change. Well, for all of you who're waiting for the device to hit shelves here, you're in for some good news as the Xperia Z4 might be coming to Verizon.
Coming to Verizon: iPad mini 4, Xperia Z4, GPad X 8.3, Desire 526

Sony's Xperia Z4 Coming To Verizon Alongside Rumored LG GPad And Other Devices
Retired leaker Evan Blass, or @evleaks can't seem to quit his job completely it seems. The infamous leaker seems to have some new information about Sony's Xperia Z4, which at the time of its launch was to be available in Japan only. Looks like Sony's finally decided to move the Xperia Z4 outside its home territory, as, according to @evleaks, the Xperia Z4 will be coming to Verizon Wireless. So all you folks who want the Snapdragon 810 on Sony's latest flagship should now have some peace, given that @evleaks is on point, which he generally is.
A successful Xperia Z4 reception would also mean good news for Qualcomm, who has been denying on several occasions about any throttling issues present on the Snapdragon 810. And while the Xperia Z4 was rumored prior to its launch of not coming with the US manufacturer's top processor, Sony chose to rather unveil the device in limited quantities. It might have been a wise move on its behalf, as we soon saw Xiaomi launch the Mi Note Pro with what the manufacturer claimed was an upgraded Qualcomm SoC. Sounds interesting.
