T-Mobile has been on a roll this year. It first ditched contracts in late March and then it started to offer the best deals in the industry on hot devices like the Galaxy S4 and HTC One. Now the carrier is getting even more great smartphones.
TmoNews obtained a product roadmap from T-Mobile that lists July 14 as the launch day for both the Sony Xperia Z and the Lumia 925. Barring any sudden love for Sony from the other major carriers, both the Xperia Z and Lumia 925 will be exclusive to T-Mobile.
So, what will these new devices bring to the table? The Xperia Z is Sony's latest flagship device, and as such, comes equipped with some pretty serious hardware. It has a 5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon S4 quad-core CPU, 2GB of RAM, 13MP rear camera and support for 4G LTE. It's also dust and water resistant.
As for the Lumia 925, it's Nokia's continuation of its popular Windows Phone 8 line of devices that began with the AT&T exclusive Lumia 920. The Lumia 925 is more similar to Verizon's Lumia 928 as both devices feature a number of upgrades over the original Lumia 920. The 925 features a 4.5-inch OLED display, 1GB of RAM, an 8.7MP camera and 32GB of internal storage. Unfortunately, the 925 doesn't have the Xenon flash that the 928 has, instead opting for a dual-LED flash.
Like all rumors, you should take this information with a grain of salt. I don't doubt the authenticity of the product roadmap, but launch dates change all the time. T-Mobile is certainly no stranger to delaying product launches at the last minute. Let's just hope that it's not hit with any major delays as yours truly is really looking forward to the Xperia Z.
