Patience pays off – after EU and Korean pre-orders, Americans are next in line to get a Sony Xperia XZ Premium. At least those with $800 to spare.
Amazon, Best Buy, Frys and other retailers will offer the Sony flagship (but no carriers, for now). You’ll be able to pre-order on June 12, the phone will be shipped a week later on June 19. You should be familiar with the specs that make the XZ Premium unique (if not, read our review), but do keep in mind that the fingerprint reader will be disabled.
Also on June 12, pre-orders for the plus-sized photography buff, the Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra, will begin. Pre-orders will ship out on June 21, regular sales commence later on July 2. Well be publishing a review for that one soon, for now check out some high-quality selfies from the optically-stabilized 16MP front camera.
By the way, the Xperia Touch projector, a battery-powered, Android-running pico projector will also on pre-order (on June 16). Theres a catch, though, two in fact – first, it costs $1,700, second, it will only be available at Sony Square in New York.
