Sony's Xperia XZ Premium receives a discount but still costs a hefty $699.99

It was only a short while ago that Sony announced its high-end flagship for the year with the Xperia XZ Premium. More recently, it began offering the handset to those in the United States for a hefty sum of $799.99. Now, it appears that the smartphone is being discounted across multiple retail chains, knocking $100 off its original retail price.

If unfamiliar, the Xperia XZ Premium offers:

  • 5.5-inch 4K HDR display that is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor
  • 4GB RAM
  • 64GB onboard storage with microSD expansion
  • 19MP rear camera with HDR support and 4K video recording
  • 13MP front-facing camera with wide-angle lens and 5-axis stabilization
  • Bluetooth 5.0, NFC
  • USB Type-C
  • IP65/68 rated
  • 3,230mAh battery
  • Quick Charge 3.0

Although this device does offer quite a set of impressive specifications, its competitors are also offering similar, and have been pricing their handsets aggressively over the past couple months. Also, one thing to remember when purchasing the US variant is that this model, like most Sony's in the past, will not come with a fingerprint reader activated, meaning you won't be unlocking your phone or securing it with your digits right out of the box.
