Sony Mobile has all the time had difficulties cracking the US market, notably since its Xperia telephones have largely been bought unlocked, moderately than by way of carriers. Sony’s smartphones will largely work on AT&T and T-Mobile (though that doesn’t essentially imply VoLTE is supported), however if you’re Verizon then you’ve usually been out of luck.
However, earlier this yr, we noticed the Xperia XZ2 Compact certified for use with Verizon (not the conventional XZ2 thoughts), and Sony has adopted this up with its 2018 mid-ranger. Sony confirmed that the Xperia XA2 is now certified to use on Verizon too – hopefully we’ll see a wider vary of Xperia telephones certified on Verizon going ahead.
Hoping to get your palms on a brand new Verizon-certified machine this #summer? We’re comfortable to announce that the #Xperia XA2 has now been certified for use on #Verizon networks. Featuring a 23MP digicam, the Xperia XA2 takes beautiful images.
