Even the most exacting smartphone buyer out there would have a hard time arguing against the notion that the Sony Xperia Z2
is a great buy, which is precisely why we expect the Japanese manufacturer's latest flagship to sell well. Many of you will be, over the coming months, looking to grab a unit of the Z2, and that's where we'd like to come in and help. Right now, the expected global release date for the Xperia Z2 is March, and we already have an overall idea as to how Sony will approach pricing its new flagship.
Sony Xperia Z2 price and release date in Europe
Now, seeing as the Xperia Z2 has been official for less than 24 hours as of this writing, concrete information is not exactly abundant. But we're not at all clueless, either. So, for example, we already know that the Xperia Z2 will be priced pretty much identically to how Sony went about the Xperia Z1. In Europe, this means a premium price tag of anywhere between €599 and €699, or £599 in the UK. Here are the exact prices, broken by country (as seen on Sony's official site):
|Germany||France||Spain||Italy||The Netherlands||Sweden||United Kingdom||Poland||Sweden|
|Price||€ 599||€ 699||€ 699||€ 699||€ 649||SEK 5,995||£599||2 799 zł||5 995,00 kr|
Obviously, all of these are going through a pre-order stage, and we're not yet aware as to when exactly the Xperia Z2 will start shipping.
Sony Xperia Z2 price and release date in the USA
We have even less intel on Sony's plans for the Xperia Z2 as pertains to the US, but, once again, we don't feel entirely lost. If things are kept equal, the Sony Xperia Z2 should see a release Stateside several months after the handset has become available in, say, Europe. What's more, unless Sony manages a serious feat with carriers, it'll likely arrive as yet another T-Mobile exclusive for $599 on a 24 month commitment ($25/mo), or free with a different, 24 month commitment that will see you pony up anywhere from $75 to $95 a month.
More as we get it.
