Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium goes on pre-order in the US for $999.99

Right on schedule, Amazon has started taking pre-orders for the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium in the US today. The top of the line device which was announced back in April can be yours for a whopping $999.99.

To sweeten that financial blow somewhat, the retailer is bundling a free Xperia Ear Duo true wireless headset with every pre-order of the phone.

The Xperia XZ2 Premium will be released in the US on July 30. You can get one in Chrome Black only at the moment, while the Chrome Silver color version should become available at some point in the future.

The handset is the first to employ a 4K HDR screen, compliant with the HDR10 video standard. It’s powered by the Snapdragon 845, paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. On the rear you get a dual 19 MP + 12 MP camera system, with the latter a monochrome sensor. Selfies are taken care of by a 13 MP snapper, and the whole package is kept running smoothly by a 3,540 mAh battery. The XZ2 Premium runs Android 8.0 Oreo.
