Sony Xperia Z UK launch and pricing details unveiled
Officially announced yesterday at CES 2013, alongside the slightly smaller Xperia ZL, the new Sony Xperia Z will be seemingly released in the UK in March.
Both Phones 4U and Clove say they will start selling the Xperia Z on March 1. While Phones 4U doesn’t mention the price of the handset, Clove is currently asking £528 (about €648 or $846) for a SIM free unit.
O2 and Three have also directly confirmed that they’d offer the Xperia Z. Moreover, Engadget has it that Vodafone UK is going to stock the new smartphone, too. Unfortunately, none of these operators mentioned exactly when they would sell the Xperia Z.
There is no word if EE will want to offer the device, but it could certainly do it, adding it to its LTE line-up.
The Xperia Z and Xperia ZL are Sony’s first smartphones to come with 5 inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) displays. The Z is dust proof and waterproof, and features: Android 4.1 Jelly Bean (upgradeable to 4.2), NFC, quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 2MP front-facing camera, 13MP rear camera (with Sony Exmor RS sensor, LED flash and HDR), 16GB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support. The handset is 7.9mm thin, weighs 146 grams, and comes with a 2,330 mAh battery.
