Sony Xperia Z price revealed
The Sony Xperia Z, formerly known only by its "Yuga" codename, might very well be the embodiment of a badly kept secret. Candid photos of it have leaked more than once already, not to mention that a Russian blog even got the chance to give it a thorough preview. And now, yet another piece of the Sony Xperia Z puzzle has been thrown on the table, namely the retail price of the device.
According to this leaked, seemingly legitimate image, the Sony Xperia Z will cost 19,990 Thai Baht. That equals to about $655 off-contract, which seems like a price you'd expect attached to a smartphone of this rank. The handset's pricing might differ in other markets, but perhaps the gap will not be that wide. For those who need a refresher, the Xperia Z packs a 5-inch, 1080p screen, a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro system-on-a-chip, 2GB of RAM, and a 12MP Exmor RS camera. Add to all that the water-tight body and the presence of Android 4.1 out of the box and you get a high-end smartphone that will surely make a geek's heart skip a beat.
The Sony Xperia Z is expected to be announced during CES 2013 in Las Vegas. For those who'd like to keep an eye on the show, check out the CES schedule of events and the list of devices that might make an appearance.
