Sony recently introduced the Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Compact, but the company remained mum on the details of a US launch. That changes today, with Sony announcing both US pricing and availability for the Xperia Z5 and Z5 Compact. Both phones will be launching on February 7, with the Xperia Z5 priced at $599 and the Z5 Compact priced at $499.

The phones are remarkably similar in specs, with the only changes being in the display, battery and RAM. As a refresher, the Xperia Z5 features a 5.2-inch 1080p TriLuminos display, 3GB of RAM, 2900mAh battery and 23-megapixel rear camera with an Exmor RS sensor and an autofocus speed of just 0.03 seconds. The Xperia Z5 Compact features the same camera, a 4.6-inch 720p TriLuminos display, 2GB of RAM and a 2700mAh battery. Both devices also feature IP65/IP68 dust resistance and waterproofing.

So there you have it, the details on how US customers can get their hands on Sony’s new devices. Are you planning to purchase the Xperia Z5 or Xperia Z5 Compact?
