Sony’s Xperia XZ2 Premium is coming soon to the U.S., but when it does it won’t be cheap.
The Xperia XZ2 Premium will be available for pre-order from Amazon and Best Buy starting July 9th. Pricing will be set at $999.99, and customers that pre-order from Amazon will get a free pair of Xperia Ear Duo wireless headphones ($279.99 value). The XZ2 Premium will launch on July 30th.
The specs of the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium back up its “premium” moniker. There’s a 5.8-inch 3840×2160 HDR display on its face along with a Snapdragon 845 processor and 6GB of RAM inside its shell. It’s got a dual rear camera setup that has a 19MP color sensor and 12MP monochrome sensor with an ISO of 51,200 for super low light performance.
Other notable specs of the Xperia XZ2 include 64GB of built-in storage, a microSD card slot, a 3540mAh battery, and a 13MP wide angle front-facing camera. This Android 8.0 phone also includes a USB-C port, but it does not have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Sony has been bringing its unlocked Android phones to the U.S. for a few years now, and it’s good to see that continue with the Xperia XZ2 Premium. This definitely isn’t a cheap device, but if its super high-res screen appeals to you, you’ll be able to snag one of your very own next month.
