Let me apologize to you and the forum. My original post about having the Z4v was a typo, I have the Z3v. There is no official word on a release date for that device. http://vz.to/1GamcKD

I'm also hoping for the Z5. Is the Z3+ newer also or just an older Z series? Sonys mobile site is showing that it's coming soon but in their FB page is showing that the Z5 is their latest model but they don't even announce the Z5 on their mobile site; just their Z3+. I'm confused.
The z3+ is sonys LM ast phone from ~6 months ago and is not in the US. A
version of it was supposed to come to Verizon as the z4v. Don't think
that's happening anymore(happily) so hopefully we're getting the z5.
A brief history of the last few years of Verizon and the "z" series cell phones....
A fact of life: If you like Apple or Samsung, V will treat you like a king. For LG or HTC they'll treat you like a Prince, or maybe a Duke. But if you yearn for a Sony phone, you'll be treated like a peon. Just look around in these Sony groups and it's obvious. V gives no shrift whatsoever (and repeated canned "we love you , just watch our news page" platitudes don't change that)....
Pretty spot on. It kind of falls back on the stupidity of consumers though.
If more consumers weren't blinded by "the big 2" Verizon would be forced to
put out others phones. It's good to have options the and the z2, z3 and now
z5 are great phones. The z3v was a z2 that came out AFTER the 3 and was a
Verizon exclusive that never got updates. Makes Sony look bad to uninformed
consumers when really its Verizon that is at fault. Unless you want a
Samsung, iPhone or Lg G series phone, Verizon really doesn't care about you.
The z4v has been cancelled. http://www.verizonwireless.com/news/article/2015/06/experience-the-freedom-to-play-with-sonys-xperia...
I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.
Yes that is what we were referring to. Now they need to announce and
release the z5 more than a month or 2 before the z6 is launched or they're
never going to gain traction/sell in this market. With sony phones it is
partly Sony's fault but is Verizon's as well. Verizon is notorious for poor
phone releases except when it comes to iPhone, Samsung and lg G series.
This offers consumers very little choice and is getting very frustrating.
