Xperia XZ pre-orders in Europe come with free Sony headphones in tow
Sony has been using the same tactic every time it launches a new high-end smartphone, free stuff with each pre-order. Well, this year is no exception and customers who pre-order the Xperia XZ in Europe will get a free pair of headphones.

Those of you who can't wait to get their hands on Sony's newest Android phone will be pleased to know that pre-ordering the Xperia XZ in Europe will also get you the company's MDR-XB950BT headphones worth around £150.

The promo is available in most European markets including the UK, Germany, Italy, Poland, Sweden and the Netherlands. However, you must pre-order the Xperia XZ until October 5 in the UK and October 10 in the rest of Europe, respectively, if you want to take advantage of this offer.

Sony Xperia XZ is now available for pre-order all over Europe, but the price the phone varies by country and retailer. Even in the UK, you can grab one for either £500 (Carphone Warehouse) or £550 (Clove). The good news is everyone seems to have the free Sony headphones promotion available, so you can choose whatever retailer suits you best.

It's also worth mentioning that Sony announced the Xperia XZ will be available in three different colors: Forest Blue, Mineral Black and Platinum.

If you're still on the fence whether or not to pre-order Sony's high-end smartphone, then you check out our full Xperia XZ hands-on where we discuss what's new design-wise and what's been regurgitated by the Japanese company.

On a side note, before pre-ordering the smartphone, customers in the US should take into consideration the fact that the Xperia XZ will not have a fingerprint scanner like the European version does.

Still deciding to pre-oder this or wait for the Note 7. I really don't like the lack of FM radio on the XZ, otherwise it would have been the XZ for me.

The Note 7 doesn't have FM radio neither...

It may not be enabled by default (like the S7), but I'm 99% it does. The Note 7 works with nextradio, which means it has to have an FM radio.

If you are in the U.S., the XZ doesn't come with a fingerprint scanner. If that is important to you.
