Sony Xperia Z1 Pricing Caught in the Wild
The Xperia Z1 was officially announced yesterday at IFA 2013 but the Japanese company failed to announce the pricing of the new flagship smartphone.
Fortunately, a couple of retailers around the world are already listing the price of the Sony Xperia Z1 and Clove UK is one of them, asking £564 (including VAT) for the 20.7 megapixel camera phone. The same British retailer writes that the handset will hit its store shelves on September 16. On the other hand, the Sony Xperia Z1 will have a price tag of $730 at Negri Electronics, but it will only ship as of September 20.
Moreover, Sony’s press release for the German market notes that the Xperia Z1 will cost €650 and that it will become available for purchase in Q3.
The same press release reveals the pricing of the new QX100 and QX10 camera lens the Japanese company introduced yesterday in Berlin: €450 ($500 on Amazon.com) and €200 ($250 on Amazon.com). Sony’s document also reveals that SmartWatch 2 will have a price tag of €200 and that it will be released in Q3, while the Smart Imaging Stand will cost €120 and the simple tripod will be €40, both being released by the end of September.
Sony’s new flagship smartphone is based on a Snapdragon 800 chipset, while sporting a 5-inch full HD Triluminos display, 2 GB of RAM, and an impressive 20.7 megapixel camera with G Lens and OIS, making it one of the most powerful smartphones in the world.
