Sony Xperia 1 will be released in the US in July
« on: May 20, 2019, 06:13:50 AM »


Smartphone makers usually release new flagship devices a few weeks after announcing them, or, in some cases, immediately after revealing them to the world. Unfortunately, that's not what Sony is doing - the company announced its Xperia 1 flagship back in February, and it's only now getting ready to launch it around the world. The new Xperia phone should be available in Europe in the first week of June, but customers in North America will have to wait an extra month for the device.


In the US, the Sony Xperia 1 has been listed on Amazon since April, next to a $999.99 price tag. But the handset's official price - unveiled by Sony this week - is a bit lower, although still close to $1,000. More exactly, the Xperia 1 will cost you $949.99 unlocked, coming in two color variants: black and purple. According to Sony, its new flagship phone will be in stock in the US starting July 12. Best Buy, B&H Photo, Focus Camera, and other unnamed retailers will join Amazon in selling the handset.

Last year, when the high-end Xperia XZ3 went on pre-order stateside, it came with free Sony earphones worth $280. Sadly, it appears that there are no freebies offered with the Xperia 1, although, who knows, this may change at some point.

The US variant of the Sony Xperia 1 is compatible with AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Wireless. This will be the third Sony phone of 2019 to work on all these three carries, following the mid-range Xperia 10 and Xperia 10 Plus (both launched in March). To be clear, none of the carriers will sell the Xperia 1 directly, so your only option will be to purchase the phone unlocked. If you're a customer of Sprint or US Cellular, you will not be able to use Sony's latest handsets.
