You can now pre-order Sony’s latest flagship smartphone, the Xperia XZ Premium, in the United States from Amazon and Best Buy. The handset is priced at $799.99 and will start shipping in time for delivery at customers’ homes on Monday, June 19.
That’s an awful lot of money to spend on a smartphone, even more so when you consider that the U.S. version doesn’t ship with a fingerprint scanner, which is strange because it looks like the hardware is there, so we’re guessing it’s been disabled in the software.
So what do you get for eight hundred dollars? Well, in addition to a stunning 5.5-inch 4K display, the Xperia XZ Premium sports a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, a 3,230mAh battery and a 19MP rear-facing camera with 960 fps slow-motion video.
The Xperia XZ Premium supports CDMA and GSM networks
Obviously, the variant of the Xperia XZ Premium that’s up for grabs from Amazon and Best Buy is unlocked and supports both CDMA- and GSM-based networks, meaning it’ll work with just about any carrier in the United States, including AT&T, Sprint and Verizon.
