Xperia Z3 Price Revealed by British Retailer

Sony officially unveiled the Xperia Z3 and the Z3 Compact yesterday at IFA 2014, but the company still hasn’t said how much it’s charging for the two new smartphones. Thankfully we may not have to wait any longer to find out after British third-party retailer Clove revealed its own pricing for the Z3 lineup.

The bad news, however, is that the new phones won’t come cheap. It looks like an unlocked Xperia Z3 will set you back £520 (roughly $850) while its little brother could cost £432 (about $710). Of course Sony probably won’t charge the exact converted amount here America, and T-Mobile still hasn’t said how it plans to price the Z3 when it hits stores later this year.

The Xperia Z3 packs a 1080p 5.2-inch display, a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 16/32GB with microSD support, a 20-megapixel camera and runs Android 4.4 with some of Sony’s own software on top. Meanwhile the Z3 Compact offers pretty much the same specs, but comes in a small frame with a 4.6-inch 720p display for a lower price. Both devices also feature the company’s new Remote Play software, which lets you play full PS4 games from your smartphone if someone else is using the TV.

We can’t wait to get our hands on Sony’s new smartphone lineup—not to mention the Z3 Tablet Compact—and this may be the fastest we’ve ever seen a flagship Xperia phone make its way to U.S. stores. We’re curious to see how much the new phones will cost though, especially with T-Mobile’s penchant for aggressive pricing.
