Sony announced a slew of new devices during this year’s edition of MWC, but some of them weren't released in all markets. Now, the company revealed pricing and release dates for the Xperia XZ Premium, Xperia Touch, and Xperia XA1 Ultra.
Sony Xperia XZ Premium will be made available in the US starting June 12, 2017. The smartphone will arrive for pre-order at Amazon and Best Buy, while the release will take place one week later, on June 19. Users in the US will get the opportunity to buy the phone unlocked through Amazon, Best Buy, Fry’s and other retailers which weren’t mentioned in the press release.
Moreover, the suggested retail price of the new device will reach $799.99. The phone runs the latest Snapdragon 835 platform and comes with 4GB of RAM, a 5.46-inch display with 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution and a battery capacity of 3,230mAh. Its most appealing feature is the rear 19MP camera sensor with Motion Eye technology and its 13MP wide angle snapper.
The Xperia XZ Premium is the world’s first 4k HDR screen in a smartphone and comes with protection against water and dust. In addition, the smartphone is offered in a number of colors, including Luminous Chrome, Deepsea Black, and Bronze Pink, and will support GSM networks.
Sony Xperia Touch interactive projector will make its way to the US on June 16 and will be made available at the Sony Square display room in New York City. It will carry a retail price of $1,699.99.
Pre-orders for the mid-ranger Xperia XA1 Ultra will begin on June 12 and the phone will release on June 21 in the US. In-store sales will commence on July 2, but Sony didn’t reveal the retail price for the new smartphone. Still, the device carries a price of about $400 in Europe and the US pricing should be quite similar.
The Xperia XA1 Ultra comes with a 6-inch edge-to-edge Full HD display and a 23MP main camera, coupled with a 16MP sensor in the front.
