Deal: Unlocked Sony Xperia XZ now costs as low as $582 in the US


While it doesn't look like Sony Mobile is preparing anything special for Black Friday (at least not in the US), we do have good news if you're planning to buy an Xperia XZ. The smartphone - Sony's current flagship - can now be purchased for as low as $581.98 unlocked. More exactly, Amazon is selling the silver/platinum version of the Xperia XZ for $581.98, while asking $599.99 for the blue and black models. Best Buy is also offering the Xperia XZ for $599.99 (in all three color variants). Check out the source links below to see the deals for yourself.

Regardless of what version of the Xperia XZ you may want to get, the phone is at least $100 cheaper than at launch, when it was priced at $699.99. Mind you, the handset is officially offered by Sony via Amazon and Best Buy, coming with US warranty and GSM/LTE carrier compatibility (AT&T, T-Mobile, Cricket, MetroPCS, etc.)

The Sony Xperia XZ recently received the latest security update from Google, though it still runs Android Marshmallow. The device will be updated to Android Nougat at some point, possibly before the end of the year.

A couple of months ago, when we reviewed the Sony Xperia XZ, we concluded that it was too pricey at $699.99. But now that the handset can be had for less than $600, it may be worth it. Tempted?
