Sony has sent out invites to select members of the media to attend a press event in New York City on October 9, where the company will likely have some US-based announcements for their new Xperia Z3 smartphone family.

Sony first announced the Xperia Z3, along with the Xperia Z3 Compact and the Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact at IFA 2014, However, the company has had little success in recent times in getting major carriers in the USA to sell their mobile devices. It's possible this press release event will allow Sony to make some US wireless provider announcements for its newest products.

Are you looking forward to Sony making some US-based Xperia reveals in early October?
