Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium Is Officially Available in the U.S. – Here’s Where You Can Buy It From
Sony’s Xperia XZ Premium is only the second smartphone in the entire world to feature a 4K display and those who didn’t want to pay attention to the Galaxy S8 or the LG G6, here is your chance to become the proud owner of another great flagship.
Xperia XZ Premium Touts Impressive Hardware and Stereo Speakers With a Camera That Can Record Video at an Extremely Slow 960 Frames Per Second
Currently, only the black and chrome versions of the Xperia XZ Premium are in stock at Amazon and Best Buy. Both online retailers state that a pink version will be available starting July 3, so for those that are all about the color, you will have to wait till you can get your hands on one. Since you’ll be getting an unlocked model, the phone will only work on GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. If you’re a Verizon, Sprint, or US Cellular user, you will be out of luck.
Underneath the premium chassis, you get a Snapdragon 835 and 4GB RAM pairing, and that my friends, is just the start of the impressive hardware tucked inside the Xperia XZ Premium. You also get 64GB of onboard storage that allows you to expand it up to 256GB via a microSD card slot. While the phone features a fair amount of bezels at the top and bottom, it is because the device features front-facing stereo speakers designed to deliver superb audio quality. Front-firing speakers are always a plus so we’re glad they were placed in this phone.

Keep in mind that the fingerprint sensor has been disabled for the Xperia XZ Premium units being sold in the U.S. so you will have to find another way to lock and unlock your smartphone. The rear camera is going to be one of the key selling points and can capture images up to a maximum resolution of 19MP. Hybrid autofocus will lock into the image at 0.03 seconds and the slow-motion video capture feature can record footage up to 960 frames per seconds.
If that does not get you rattled up to purchase the phone then we don’t know what will. On a side note, the phone will cost $799.99, making it an extremely expensive phone, but you get what you pay for right?
