Sony Xperia XZ was the last of the company’s flagship smartphones to be released in 2016. In actual sense, the Xperia XZ was the high-end model compared to the Xperia X Performance, which was released earlier in the same year.
Like its counterpart, the Xperia XZ hit the market with a high-end price tag of $699.99. Although many might have wanted to get themselves one, the price tag has meant that not so many have been able to buy the phone. But things have now taken a different turn, especially now that the Xperia XZs and Xperia XZ Premium have already been confirmed.
As at the time of this writing, you can get your hands on a brand new Sony Xperia XZ on Amazon at a price of just $353.17. The phone’s usual price tag is $499.99, which means that this deal sheds off an impressive $146.82, which is equivalent to a 29% discount. This deal only applies to the black color variant, but this doesn’t mean those interested in other color variants won’t be saving themselves a few dollars.
If you want the blue variant, you’ll get it for $387.89 and the silver variant comes in at $388.71. You can also pay $399.99 and the deal will see you get a 64GB microSD card on any of the three color variants.
The same Sony Xperia XZ has also been discounted on Daily Steals. In fact, the deal here is a lot better, where the price has been slashed to just $340, but this requires that you throw in the coupon code XPERIADS60, otherwise, you’ll end up paying $400, which is still a discounted price. At Daily Steals, you can have the Xperia XZ in Forest Blue, Graphite Black or Platinum color variants.
These are great deals for a phone that has about half a year on the market. The Xperia XZ features a 5.2-inch display screen with a Full HD resolution and under the hood, you get a Snapdragon 820 SoC paired with 3GB RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. There’s a huge 23MP shooter on the back panel and a 13MP selfie lens. Keeping it alive is a 2900mAh battery unit that supports fast charging technology and the entire body is IP67 certified for dust and water resistance.
On the software front, the Xperia XZ has Android Marshmallow running the show, but it can be updated to Android Nougat right away. Being unlocked models, you can only use the phone on GSM carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile.
