Sony has packed the Xperia Z5 with beautiful design, top-of-the-shelf configurations and a top-notch camera unit. However, the handset has not made its way to the U.S. market yet. The U.K. market, on the other hand, offers the Z5. Apart from the regular flagship, a James Bond movie based edition will also be released, but the "Made for Bond" variant apparently may not be released in the U.S.
As it turns out, Sony U.K. has a special promotional page showing the Xperia Z5 "Made for Bond" version. However, Sony USA shows the James Bond version of the Xperia Z3+ instead. This means, the Sony Xperia Z5 Bond variant may not be made available in the U.S., according to Xperia Blog opines.
To add fuel to the fire, unlike the U.K., there has been no promotion on the Bond variant of the Xperia Z5 in the U.S., at least not until now. Phone Arena noticed that the Xperia Z5 sits at the top of the main official page specific to the U.K. When it comes to the U.S. page, the Sony Xperia Z3+ has been located at the bottom end of the main page.
Meanwhile, Sony has been making news for wrong reasons from the time the massive hacking saga took place in 2014, which ultimately led to the leak of many internal communication mails and classified information to the public domain. To top it off, the Xperia Z3+ and the Xperia Z4 have not been able to help the sinking ship, even though, the sales cannot be called as a total disappointment. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, known for the overheating problem, has reportedly played havoc in the sales, Phone Arena reported.
Sony recently acknowledged that the company might exit the highly competitive smartphone-making business in order to turn profitable. In Sony CEO Kazuo Hirai own words: "We will continue with the business as long as we are on track with the scenario of breaking even next year onwards. Otherwise, we haven't eliminated the consideration of alternative options," The Economic Times reported.
