SIM-free Sony Xperia Z1 available in the UK now
Announced by Sony only a couple of weeks ago, the new Xperia Z1 flagship smartphone is now in stock in the UK. However, only the black version of the handset is available now, with the white one expected to arrive next week.
Clove is asking £564 (€672, or $898) for an unlocked Xperia Z1, also offering a free Sony SmartWatch 2 (which will be shipped in late September).
Handtec is asking £557.99 for the Z1 (free SmartWatch 2 included), while Digital Phone Company has priced it at £549.99.
If you want a purple Xperia Z1, it looks like Carphone Warehouse is the only UK retailer that will sell that – it should happen before the end of the month.
As previously reported, Three UK has also confirmed that it would offer the Z1 this month.
Running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean (upgradable to 4.4 KitKat), the Sony Xperia Z1 features an 8.5mm case that’s dustproof and waterproof (IP58 certified), LTE connectivity, NFC, 5 inch Full HD Triluminos display, 20.7MP rear camera with Sony G Lens, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor clocked at 2.2GHz, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3,000 mAh battery.
A mini version of the Xperia Z1 might be announced by Sony in the next few months, or in early 2014.
