The Sony Xperia 1 has caused a big splash, but fans have been resigned for a long wait before they can get hands-on. Sony only gave a vague ‘late spring' release window, but it looks like we're getting a better idea on timing. UK retailer Clove has listed the Xperia 1 up for pre-order at a price point of £849. Clove is expecting first shipments to arrive in late May 2019. This means there is still close to a three-month wait unfortunately.
Who plans on picking up a Xperia 1? Is the price point what you expected? Has Sony announced the handset too early, given the near summer launch? We’d love to hear your thoughts below.
