    One of the top 3 carriers in Japan, AU by KDDI announed today that Sony's next flagship the Xperia Z5 will be available from its website in late October. (No pricing information yet)

    The Sony Xperia Z5 packs a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 810 quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage (expandable up to 200GB via microSD), a 23MP rear-facing camera, a 5.1MP selfie shooter and a 2,900mAh battery.

    How many of you are looking forward to this device when it hits state side?

    This is starting to look like my next phone. Currently using a N5 and was all ready to upgrade to N5X. But the 2gb RAM/no wireless charging/no OIS maybe a bridge too far for me.

    If I have to go without wireless charging, I want to at least do it with a device that feels modern....

    UPDATE: I should also add that my thinking is affected by an absolutely abysmal repair experience that I had this year with LG on my N5. Three months in total, sending the phone to their Texas facility 5 separate times, rude treatment by management. This was for a repair that I paid for and I honestly doubt it would have been any better if I had a warranty.

    I'm on Verizon... I want an unmolested sony phone.

    Might as well wish for a unicorn, that's far more likely to happen

    Can't believe they are still putting glass on the back. I think I'll stick with my z3v for another year or two even though it's still on lollipop.

    Those that are considering Sony phones in the states, beware of nonexistent support and accessories.

    True there aren't much in the way of accessories, but the TYLT wireless charger does work great with it, but hell i just want to see this phone in the US on Verizon (or even the Z4v if it's even going to arrive) before X-mas, or before Liftedplane gets his unicorn ;)
