Deal: Sony's 2016 Xperia XZ flagship (US variant) is down to $300, the lowest price to date!


If you only have $300 to spend on a high-end unlocked smartphone, perhaps you'll want to know that Sony's Xperia XZ now costs $299.99 - brand new - at B&H. We're talking about the official US variant of the phone, which obviously comes with a warranty for Stateside consumers. These units are intended for GSM carriers like T-Mobile and AT&T. This means that you won't get LTE if you're on a CDMA carrier like Sprint or Verizon.

As a reminder, the handset was initially released for $699.99 in the US (back in October of 2016), so it's not among Sony's newest devices. Still, it's not a bad proposition at this price point.

Some of the main features of the Xperia XZ include the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 SoC, 3 GB RAM and a 5.2-inch, 1080 x 1920 display. There's also a 23-megapixel main camera with 4K video recording among other treats, and a 13-megapixel front camera with a wide-angle lens for those all-important group selfies. A 2,900 mAh battery keeps the lights on.

Pfff, and we are in 2018, what do you expect? Of course it has to be 400USD, or who would even be interested in these. Hopefully newer Xperia XZ will have waaay less bezel to compete with Samsung galaxy s9

The Xperia XZ is not Sony's flagship. PhoneArena clearly has that wrong. Sony's current flagship is the Xperia XZ premium.

It's $300, not $400.

Xperia XZ is NOT the same as the XZ Premium, which has a 5.5 in screen and 3230 mAh battery - - the true flagship
