Sony Xperia Z Receives FCC Approvals

The smartphone is one step closer to landing in the US

Japanese mobile phone maker Sony Mobile is gearing up for the official release of its new Xperia Z handset, and has just made a new step closer to that achievement.

The company’s new Android-based flagship smartphone has received the necessary approvals from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

On the FCC website users can have a look both at a series of teardown photos with the device, as well as at Sony’s start-up guide for the smartphone.

However, it should be noted that Xperia Z was approved for use in the United States as model C6602, which packs only HSPA+ connectivity capabilities, and no LTE support.

Running under Android 4.1 Jelly Bean at the moment, the new device will hit shelves with a 5-inch full HD screen, a quad-core processor inside, 2GB of RAM, 13-megapixel photo snapper on the back, and front camera for video calling.
