Sony-Xperia-T2-UltraListen up, Sony and T-Mobile US fans, as we have an important announcement to make. Actually, two. FYI, we’ve got both good and bad news for y’all. Which do you want first?

The good? Here it goes. The gargantuan Xperia T2 Ultra, announced back in January and only released so far in a dual SIM flavor in India, has visited the FCC with T-Mobile-friendly 4G LTE connectivity and a model number confirming it’s indeed headed Magenta’s way: D5316.

We’re likely looking at a single SIM version, and the 6-inch phablet is no doubt set to see daylight on T-Mo before spring ends. Also, we expect the big guy to be priced rather sensibly, since it’s not quite a force of nature: 720p display, quad-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon 400 chip, 1 GB RAM, 3,000 mAh battery, 13 MP camera.

On the dark side of things, this FCC approval may not be great news for potential Xperia Z2 buyers. We always assumed Sony would bring its latest flagship device on America’s number four wireless network sooner or later, but with the Z1s launched recently and T2 Ultra imminent, we’re starting to have doubts.

Remember, Sony’s currently plagued by manufacturing woes, preventing the OEM from properly and promptly releasing the Xperia Z2 on the old continent. Oh, well, if it takes them any longer, you can always score Samsung’s Galaxy S5 or HTC’s All New One instead.
