Sony Xperia XZ1, XZ1 Compact, XA1 Plus price and release date


There aren't too many manufacturers who release smartphones as frequently as Sony. The Japanese company has been dishing out both high-end and mid-range models on a six-month basis for quite some time now, and it just announced the latest members of the Xperia family at IFA.

The new Xperia XZ1, XZ1 Compact, and XA1 Plus are quite an interesting bunch. The first two can be seen as successors to the 2016 Xperia XZ rather than the 2017 XZ Premium, while the third one looks like a cross-breed between the XA1 and XA1 Ultra

If you're interested in purchasing either of the three handsets, you're probably wondering when they will be available and at what price. This information can be seen in the table below, so save the date and get your wallet ready. Keep in mind that prices in Euro currently aren't available, but we suspect that Sony will just change the currency sign and stick to the same numbers.
