Verizon is apparently gearing up to bring a slew of recently launched and upcoming smartphones and tablets in the U.S. Based on a tweet from the credible tipster Evan Blass, widely-known via the Twitter handle @evleaks, the Xperia Z4, iPad Mini 4, LG G Pad X and the HTC device will all be coming soon to Verizon. The exact release date is unknown at this point, notes Phone Arena.
It's not clear whether the Xperia Z4 en route to Verizon is the same as the Japanese version of the device. In any case, earlier reports stated that Sony will be introducing a new international variant of the Z4 as “Xperia Z3+,” according to Xperia Blog, which based its report on a White Paper.
The other smartphone expected to be offered under Verizon contract is the budget-friendly HTC Desire 526, says Phone Arena. This handset is currently available in India and it carries a pocket-friendly 4.7-inch display with 540 x 960 pixels screen resolution. Android 4.4.2 KitKat version drives this handset. Under the hood, the phone is powered by a quad-core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz and backed by 1 GB of RAM configuration. Other key HTC Desire 526 features include an 8 MP rear-facing camera with LED flash, 2 MP front-facing snapper, Li-Ion 2,000 mAh battery and dual-SIM support.
The Apple iPad Mini 3 was unveiled in October 2014 and the successor iPad Mini 4 is expected to be released around the same time frame in 2015. The LG G Pad X 8.3, on the other hand, is believed to be the successor of the LG G Pad 8.3 released in 2013. Reportedly, Verizon is selling the predecessor G Pad for $129.99 with a contract.
Here's the tweet from @evleaks reporting the devices heading to Verizon:
