Sony has a problem getting phones into the United States and has continuously released its flagship device several months after it was already available in Europe and Asia. That trend is set to continue into 2014 with the release of the Xperia Z2, but the one change is the carrier set to offer the Z2. Though Xperia phones have typically launched on the GSM/HSPA+ networks of AT&T and T-Mobile, the next Sony flagship appears to be Verizon-bound.
A promotional photo of the Sony Xperia Z2 appeared on the Sony Google+ earlier this morning. Though the image was meant to highlight the water-resistant body, the top of the phone showcased what's clearly a large Verizon logo. The image was soon taken down because Sony has not confirmed any launch plans for the US. The image is still up on Sony's Polish Facebook page, so you can still see the photo there.
Sony has so far remained mum on its launch plans for the US. It seemed more plausible to expect the Xperia Z2 to be sold unlocked like it has done in previous years. Though this photo is no guarantee, we can probably expect to at some point see Verizon release the Z2.source: Sony, via: PocketNow
