Sony Xperia XZ1 is already $50 cheaper in the US

It's not often that a flagship smartphone gets a price cut shortly after its official launch, and yet this is exactly what happened with the Sony Xperia XZ1. Available in the US since a few weeks ago, the Xperia XZ1 can now be bought starting at $649 - $50 off its $699 launch price.  


This lower price makes the Sony Xperia XZ1 only $50 more expensive than the smaller (but still powerful) Xperia XZ1 Compact, which was released last week for $599.


At the moment, only the black and blue versions of the Xperia XZ1 are offered for $649. If you want to get the handset in pink or silver, you still have to pay the full $699 price. You can find all four color variants at Amazon, Sony's official US distribution channel for the XZ1 - see the source link below.


At launch, the Sony Xperia XZ1 was the world's first smartphone to run Android 8 Oreo out of the box. That aside, the handset is notable for offering a 19 MP rear camera with super-slow-motion video recording (920 fps), alongside plenty of other high-end features.

Yes, bezels, but also stereo speakers, 3.5mm headphone jack and Digital Noise Cancellation. Also Oreo out of the box. Not everyone wants an S8 without Digital Noise Cancellation and Oreo update in 2018. Yes, I'm also not extremely happy with the bezels of Sony flagships but I don't care to sacrifice important features just to have a bezeless design (which ultimately doesn't even have any particular practical advantages; some bezel is good to actually hold that thing and keep you from straining your thumb).

This. I'm indifferent about the bezels.
