Sony has confirmed that all of its recently introduced Xperia X smartphones will be available in the United States. Indeed, this is quite the departure for a company who has often overlooked the country as a place to sell its mobile wares.

Ask most people in the smartphone space whether or not you can get a Sony handset and you’ll get all sorts of answers. Are they available with a carrier? Which models? Do you have to go online-only to pick one up? Is it GSM or does Sony have something for Verizon? A hundred questions, a hundred answers.

Things could be clearing up for Sony, however, as we learn the company is planning to offer all four (yep, four) of its new Xperia X line of phones in the US. Expected to sell across a number of outlets including Amazon, B&H Photo Video, and Best Buy, the unlocked phones range from around $280 on up to $700.

Here’s a quick breakdown of each model:
