We now have a release date for Sony's flagship Xperia XZ2 Premium smartphone in the US market, that's the good news. The bad news is the price. Sony announced this week that its feature-packed Xperia XZ2 Premium will be available to pre-order online at Amazon and Best Buy starting July 9, 2018, with a suggested retail price of $999.99. Let's just round it up a penny and call it a grand—the question is, will it sell at that price point? That's a tough ask, though Sony is far from the first smartphone maker to encroach the $1,000 mark. Apple did it with the iPhone X, and depending on which... Read more...

We have been hearing quite a bit about Sony's Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact handsets leading up to the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in Barcelona, just none of the information prior to today was official.

Starting at the top of the stack, the new Xperia XZ2 boasts an "extended" 5.7-inch Full HD+ display with a 2160x1080 resolution (18:9 aspect ratio) and HDR support. It's powered by Qualcomm's flagship... Read more...
Sony's upcoming 2018 Android flagships have been leaking for quite some time, but we're now getting our best look yet at the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. We'd give you two guesses as to who leaked these smartphone beauties, but you'll probably only need one guess (it's Evan Blass, of course). As you might expect from a flagship debuting in 2018, both the Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact are powered by Qualcomm's new 10nm Snapdragon 845 processor. The phones sport an aluminum unibody design, but don’t quite fully embrace the slim top and bottom bezels that are popular with today's flagship smartphones.... Read more...
Believe it or not, big ol' honking smartphones do not appeal to everyone. It is part of the reason why it took Apple so long to finally build bigger iPhone models, and to cater to folks who prefer a smaller handset, companies such as Sony continue to offer compact cellular devices. As it pertains to Sony, the company is getting ready to release a successor to its Xperia XZ1 Compact, as evidenced by an Xperia XZ2 Compact prototype that recently made an appearance. Over at the Xperia Blog, a reader posted images of the Xperia XZ2 Compact prototype, giving an early look at a phone that Sony is expected... Read more...
