Sony, a day after announcing its Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact smartphones in India, has now sent another invitation for an event scheduled for October 9 in New York.
The Sony invite image (seen above) shows the date and time along with a text in bold letters written on a wall saying "Demand Great."
We already know that Sony has been promoting its Xperia Z3 models on Twitter with #DemandGreat hashtag, indicating the New York launch most probably the US launch of the Xperia Z3 family - the Xperia Z3 (Review | Pictures), Xperia Z3 Compact (Pictures), and Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact. While some are expecting a new device to be announced, it seems quite likely that the event is for the Xperia Z3 family.
Adding to the release date speculation, T-Mobile, a US telecom operator, has confirmed that it would start selling the Xperia Z3 in the coming weeks. CNET added that Sprint might also sell its own carrier-locked Xperia Z3 handset soon. However, Sony is yet to confirm the aforementioned details.
Sony launched its Xperia Z3 and Xperia Z3 Compact handset in India on Thursday for Rs. 51,990 and Rs. 44,990 respectively. Both smartphones feature IP65/68 certification, which makes them dust-proof and waterproof. Sony says both smartphones have 4G LTE support for Indian bands.
Both smartphones also feature PS4 Remote Play, which allows users to stream their PS4 games onto the smartphone over the home Wi-Fi network - this functionality will only be rolled out in November. Check out our previous coverage for the detailed specifications of the smartphones can be seen here.
