Recent rumors suggested that the Xperia Z2 was coming to Verizon, but the carrier ended up offering the Xperia Z2 Tablet instead. However, Americans looking to get their hands on Sony’s flagship smartphone now have the option to buy the device directly from its maker. Available at a discounted price of $700, the unlocked Z2 will work with most US GSM-based networks, like AT&T and T-Mobile, however LTE compatibility may vary.

So what do you get for such a high premium? The waterproof and dust resistant Xperia Z2 sports a 5.2-inch 1,920 x 1,080 display, a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 20.7-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2.2-megapixel front-facing shooter and Android 4.4 KitKat.

If you’ve been hoping to get your hands on the rugged Z2 and don’t mind shelling out the price of a Nexus 5 and a Nexus 7 combined for a single device, then head on over to the source link below and place your order.
