Rumor: Sony Xperia Z to get its own Nexus edition Following the unveiling of Nexus editions of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One flagships, the latest rumor has Sony getting in on the action, building a Nexus model of their Xperia Z flagship.
The device is set for launch in July through Google Play just like all other Nexus phones.

Sony has been quietly working on AOSP (Android Open Source Project) versions of Jelly Bean 4.2.2 for some time and an alpha version for the Xperia Z and Xperia Tablet Z is now available. A fully working version of stock Android would need to be available before the phone could launch as a Nexus later this year.

The hardware itself has been very well received by critics and users alike.

Sony has not confirmed nor denied the rumor.
