Sony announced US prices and release dates for the Xperia XZ Premium, Touch, and XA1 Ultra

Posted on 1st Jun 2017 @ 3:09 PM

Sony is really trying to make a push this year. At MWC, the company unveiled four new smartphones, alongside its interactive projector – the Xperia Touch. And while some users around the globe are already enjoying three of the four handsets, two of them have yet to arrive in the US. Good news is that we now have official release dates for the new Sony products that have yet to make it to the US.

Sony confirmed that the Xperia XZ Premium will be available for pre-order on Amazon and Best Buy beginning June 12, 2017. The phone will be launching a week later, and starting June 19, users in the US will be able to buy it unlocked through Amazon, Best Buy, Fry's, and “other participating retailers”. The suggested retail price of the handset will be $799.99. If you'd like to know a bit more about the phone, make sure to check our Xperia XZ Premium review.

When it comes to Sony's interactive projector, the Xperia Touch, release date will be June 16. The device will be available exclusively at the Sony Square display room at 25 Madison Ave in New York City. The projector will carry a suggested retail price of $1,699.99. It might seem like a lot, but considering it's currently the only consumer device of its kind, we're sure there would be more than enough buyers.

In case you're waiting for Sony's mid-ranger, the Xperia XA1 Ultra, you're also in luck. Pre-orders of the phone will be starting June 12, followed by online availability on June 21, and in-store sales on July 2. Sony hasn't given a price for the XA1 Ultra, but if the European prices are anything to go by, we'd say that the mid-ranger will sell for about $400.
