Alluring red Sony Xperia XZ Premium now available in the US


Launched in Japan last month, the red version of Sony's Xperia XZ Premium can now be bought in the US, where Amazon is selling it unlocked alongside the phone's other three color variants (black, chrome, and pink - all available since June).

 

It doesn't look like the red (or rosso) Xperia XZ Premium that's sold in the US comes with Android 8 Oreo out of the box, instead running Android 7 Nougat. In any case, the handset should receive an Oreo update pretty soon.

 

Alluring color aside, Sony's red Xperia XZ Premium doesn't differ from the other color variants of the smartphone. This means it's got the same dust- and water-resistant body, and the same high-end features, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor and a 5.5-inch display with a very high (and rare) 2160 x 3840 pixel resolution.  

 

As you can see at the source link below, the red Sony Xperia XZ Premium is priced at $599.99 (US warranty included), and is compatible with GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. The smartphone would have looked nice on Verizon - aka Big Red - but, alas, it does not work on VZW, and neither on Sprint.
