European pre-orders for the Sony Xperia XZ Premium to start next week with bonus high-end headphones

Sony's long-awaited Xperia XZ Premium flagship, which was revealed all the way back in February at this year's Mobile World Congress, will soon be available for pre-order in Europe, after previously being made available in the UK. Some of pre-orders will also come with a premium gift of their own as well: a pair of high-end wireless noise-cancelling headphones.

The device's launch price will be between €749 and €769, which is $815 – $840, though the American price is likely to be slightly lower. While no specific release dates have been given, we know that the pre-orders will start as early as next week. The impressive pre-order bonus Sony promises are a pair of its own over-ear, Bluetooth-enabled MDR100ABN headphones, which normally retail at €300. However, their supplies will unfortunately be limited to an undisclosed amount. Some Nordic countries won't get access to this bonus, however, but will get a free Quick Charge 3.0 charger instead.

As previously revealed, the device's official launch in the region will be June 1. We still don't know, however, whether pre-orders will ship earlier than the launch date. We also don't yet know when US pre-orders will begin, though we imagine they're not that far off as well.

The Xperia XZ Premium, which Sony describes as a "premium flagship", was the first officially-revealed device running Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 835 processor. It also sports an impressive 4K-resolution display (2160 x 3840 pixels), as well as the same sensor as the Sony XZs, which is capable of shooting ultra slow-motion clips at 960 FPS, though it takes some pretty great pictures, too.
