T-Mobile Teases Xperia Z With New YouTube Clip, Promises More Detail Tomorrow

T-Mobile’s new YouTube clip shows the world a smartphone that can work under water. Whatever could that be? How about the Xperia Z? Ding ding ding! Word from my sources is that a joint press release by both companies is expected next week (the 18th to be exact)…but, the video caption promises “more details” tomorrow on T-Mobile’s Facebook page.

The video itself is pretty limited in detail other than to show the person jumping into a pool while capturing video. First, let’s stop right here and remind all of you that “vertical video syndrome” is a no-no. Don’t EVER capture video unless your phone is landscape? Capiche?

The bottom line is just about every sign that can point to the Xperia Z on T-Mobile, is doing so. I fully expect another teaser tomorrow with an announcement next week, but I’d love to see a announcement tomorrow…wouldn’t you?

    Even as an iPhone owner, I despise what the iPhone did in terms of making the idea of recording video like that acceptable. Not turning the phone on the side when recording video should be punishable by a smack to the head.

      Acceptable– by those who do not know how easy it is to shoot video the correct way.

  • thepanttherlady

    *EXCITED* :)

    HAHA I accidentally captured a video in the vertical mode in grad school and I got lectured by my teacher so I redid it in Horizontal mode and he accepted it; it was a pretty funny moment. Looks like a great phone. It is either this one, The HTC one or Samsung G4 developer edition for me. Maybe the Nokia 925 if it ever comes out. Such hard decisions! Also could this be the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active I know AT&T per Engadget is having a press conference tomorrow could T-Mobile be getting this phone too?

    • mueller2051

      There a t Mobil pre registration page for Nokia 925. At http//bit.ly/nlw925. T-Mobile text me the link

      • CJ

        It has been there for a month :)

    • Noel

      They probably will..the GS4 Active is a lovely device. In my view this is the device Sammy should load with stock Android instead of the regular GS4..my only problem is its height, taller than the regular GS4.

  • williejackbrainer@gmail.com

    Really pump about this phone. Can’t wait until the Google Edition drops. I had enought of the S3 and its receptions problems lol

    • Richard

      i never had reception issues on my s3 when i had one from tmobile.

  • Binny Gupta

    It might be the s4 active.

  • Jay J. Blanco

    Yesssssss I’m excited about this phone!

    • thepanttherlady

      You should be! :)

      • Jay J. Blanco

        No more water proof cases for my S3 :-)

        • thepanttherlady

          Even though I know this is water resistant, I have yet to test it out. I always figure with my luck, I’d have bought the one with a defect. :

        • Jay J. Blanco

          Lol oh no!

  • JBrowne1012

    I wonder if the warranty will still be voided for water damage if it breaks…

    • thepanttherlady

      There are white stickers inside each flap (5 of them) that indicates water damage. I’m sure the warranty will still be voided only because “they” have no way of knowing whether it was a defective phone or whether the user failed to close all flaps properly.

      And THAT is the reason why I haven’t tossed mine into a body of water for “fun”. LOL

      • Bklynman

        Hey Lady how did u get one? :(

        • thepanttherlady

          I bought the int’l unlocked version, model C6602. Runs awesome on T-Mobile’s network just doesn’t get LTE.

          If T-Mo offers the purple version I’ll be getting it since I want to try out the LTE. :)

    • Sean Walsh

      If the water damage is because of a faulty seal, it will be covered by Sony’s warranty. You can also get a protection plus service plan from Sony with in the first 2weeks of buying the phone. the service plan does cover accidental damage. You can go to a Sony Store, or call Sony’s support.

  • sushimane

    im paying off my note 2 for this phone haha

  • Creeepy!!

  • gdwhite85

    Forget the phone….what about the tablet…..The Tablets they have currently are obsolete…..we need a new tablet offering!!!! Come on T-Mob…….Let’s go.

  • David Lebron

    Can’t wait. I’ll be attending the event in July where I have a chance at getting seated with one :)

    • Moses JC

      Idk man the last 2 high end smart phones we were supposed to get s4 & HTC one. We didn’t get seated. Well at least not in my market

      • David Lebron

        We had a few stores get seated with the HTC One in my district.

      • David Lebron

        Leaving this message from my seated Xperia Z

  • VG

    Now after 5pm Thursday on the east coast … Any updates from TMo or Sony about this phone?

    • thepanttherlady

      Whoever monitors T-Mobile’s FB page just keeps saying “stay tuned”. Beyond annoying. :/

  • Reptar978

    I’m really hoping its the Xperia Z cause I’ve always wanted a sony phone because of their camera capabilities!

  • Laciel

    Lol almost 10pm here, whatever happen to the announcement, this is some very shitty marketing and bad PR.

  • GwapoAko

    Any update on this?
