Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium now available for pre-order in the United States

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium now available for pre-order in the United States
Sony announced last month that its newest flagships smartphone, the Xperia XZ2 Premium is going to be available for pre-order on July 9 for no less than $999.99. Starting today, the high-end device can be pre-ordered via Amazon and Best Buy for the price Sony announced back in June.

There's a catch though, as pre-orders won't ship until July 30, so you'll have to wait three more weeks if you decide to get one today. On top of that, the only color option available to those who want to purchase the smartphone is Chrome Black.

As some of you probably know by now, the Xperia XZ2 Premium should be available on the market in two colors: Chrome Black and Chrome Silver. The latter might be released in the United States later on, but for now, the Chrome Black version is the only one available for pre-order.

Last but not least, customers who pre-order the unlocked Xperia XZ2 Premium will receive a pair of Xperia Ear Duo wireless earphones. Even so, you'll have to come up with a pretty large amount of money to get Sony's latest flagship.

It is for die-hard SONY fans. I'm using XZP, but will never buy this device! This is fat, heavy, ugly bezels phone. And don't give me that crap for ergonomics and PPI of the screen. Human eye can't recognize more than 300-400 PPI and that 4K HDR recording is gimmick. Will never buy it. My XZP may be my last SONY phone.

Human eye not seeing 300-400PPI is a load of bullcrap made up by marketing to cover up inferior screens. Next year this time we will see 4K on AMOLED and there will be an article on PA about playing soggy biscuit with each other over a Displaymate article.

When SONY release first 4K screen, they make comparison on two phones with same screen size - 4k vs FHD. That was Sony Z5. When they ask customers to point 4k screen, half of the people point wrong device. From statistic point of view - there is no difference - people can't recognize 4k screen in normal usage. It is possible if you using some kind of VR device.

Actually there are people who can clearly see those pixels at 441 ppi and below. I myself included on that group. But I agree with you that the phone is fat heavy ugly back and the bezels are huge. What's happening to sony's design team? I don't care for the price, the same thing for the price of iPhone X. Price isn't an issue for those who wants it and can afford to pay for it.

if the garbage of the iPhone x costs $ 1200, the $ 999 of the xzp 2 is a Present

The iPhone X runs laps around this ugly brick, in more ways than one.

Better screen than iphone : wider gamut, HDR, BT 2020 certified Better videos : 4K HDR Better pics at night Better battery life: all flagships last more than iphone, not big deal Faster charging Higher IP rating Better audio quality Better built: Gorilla 5 Ear Duo is almost $300, better than Airpods

Bla bla bla You and Ciro can keep repeating the same crap over and over again, but that won't make it a fact. The iPhone X is better than this in almost every category, and even for an Android guy like me, I would definitely get the X way before getting this already outdated device.

I have no idea what Sony is smoking here. There's no way this joke of a phone is worth $999. There are much cheaper phones that are a lot better than this lemon.

$999 may be a steep price but I feel like the XZ2 premium is worth it. Your getting ip 68 water and dust resistance, stereo speakers, 4k screen with high refresh rate, qnovo battery care, fast software updates, dual camera, well built design, wireless charging, hi res audio support, Ldac support it has everything but a headphone jack.

LMAO :)) Yeah, looks like you have too much money and class :))) Last time Sony made a phone worth buying was Xperia Z3 :) But keep up your " sawtooth crapmoled pentile" and whatever crap you're posting. It's fun :))

I've Just Pre-Ordered it. A huge upgrade from my Z5 Premium, and I can't wait for it. @yann, 4k is not a gimmick, You have to see it side by side to 1080. There is a huge difference. @blan.inc Wireless charging, best mobile camera on the market, water proof, fastest CPU and GPU on a phone, 4kHDR display and so so so much more.
