Article by: Raphael Labuguen – Sony’s new flagship smartphone is now available online, including the United States. Unsurprisingly, the device is not cheap with an average price tag of $800.
At GSM Nation, the Sony Xperia Z with unlocked SIM card slot is priced $849, while Clove in the United Kingdom is selling the same handset for $794 and ships with a free wireless speaker.
The Sony Xperia Z is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz, 2GB RAM and Android Jelly Bean 4.1 mobile operating system with Sony’s own custom user interface.
One of the biggest features of the Sony Xperia Z is its 5-inch 1080p full HD display, aside from its “revolutionary” 13-megapixel back-facing primary camera. According to Sony, the Xperia Z will support Long Term Evolution, but it would depend on region.
Sony hasn’t announced pricing or availability for the carrier-locked Sony Xperia Z model for the United States market, but some sites suggest that at least one US wireless carrier will offer the handset with LTE and on-contract, possibly AT&T or Verizon Wireless.
