The Xperia ZL has been confirmed by Sony to be hitting our shores sometime in the near future, the only problem is that it will be SIM-unlocked. This means that AT&T and T-Mobile customers can pick up this 5″ full-HD device and swap out their SIM cards if they wish.

Inside, users will find a Qualcomm quad-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, as well as 2GB of RAM. There’s a 13.1-megapixel camera around back, and the handset runs Android Jelly Bean. Although the phone doesn’t support Verizon, users can use it with both AT&T and T-Mobile’s 4G LTE networks.
