Sony fans rejoice! The tech giant is finally announcing plans to bring two of its current flagship devices to the United States. You may remember that Sony announced the Z5, Z5 Premium and Z5 compact way back in September at IFA in Berlin but nary a peep about US availability. Until now.
Sony has announced that beginning February 7, you’ll be able to pick up the Sony Xperia Z5 and Sony Xperia Z5 compact. The phones will be sold unlocked and support GSM networks (Sorry Verizon and Sprint customers). As for pricing, the Z5 will run you $599.99, which is about standard for flagship devices, and the Z5 Compact will come in at $499.99.
The Sony Xperia Z5 has a 5.2″ 1080p (401 PPI) screen, 3 gigs of RAM, 32 GB of on-board storage and a 2,900 mAh battery. The Xperia Z5 Compact has a 4.6″ 720p (319 PPI) screen, with 2 GB of RAM, the same 32 GB of storage, and a 2,700mAH battery. The phones both share a huge 23 megapixel rear shooter. The compact has a 5 MP front facing shooter, while its big brother has an 8 MP selfie cam.
Will you be picking up either of the Sony flagships? Did Sony wait too long to bring them to the US? And what about the Sony Xperia Z5 Premium with its 4K screen? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
