Sony launched its flagship smartphone for 2013, the Xperia Z, at the International CES event in January this year. The Japanese company has not yet confirmed a release date of the smartphone in the U.S. but it seems that the handset is heading to T-Mobile.

According to a recent report from TmoNews, T-Mobile is testing the latest Sony Xperia Z and may launch the handset soon.

"It's taken me the better half of two weeks to confirm this unicorn was definitively floating around in T-Mobile's world, but it seems Sony may be ready to make a return to the Magenta network. After having an 'it's complicated' status for what seems like an eternity, I've managed to 'confirm' via three separate sources that the Xperia Z (Yuga) is being tested," reports TmoNews.

The TmoNews report also shows a leaked image of the Xperia Z with the T-Mobile logo at the bottom of the device. However, the report also says that the image may not be legit.

The Xperia Z has received a lot of attention since its release in February this year. However, U.S. customers are still waiting to lay their hands on the handset as none of the carriers has said when the device will be released.

The Xperia Z sports a 5-inch full HD Reality Display with 1920 x 1080 resolution, Mobile BRAVIA Engine 2, and has 443 pixels per inch (ppi). The display of the handset is made with a shatter-proof sheet on scratch-resistant glass. The Xperia Z features a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor with Adreno 320GPU.

The smartphone also has 16GB of on-board storage, and 2GB of RAM. The handset is equipped with a 13.1-megapixel rear-facing camera, 2.2-megapixel secondary camera, and runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. The Xperia Z is one of the first high-end smartphones that is dust and water resistant.

We will have to wait until T-Mobile confirms the launch of the Xperia Z. Until then we have to take the news with a pinch of salt.
