Earlier this week at Mobile World Congress, we got our first glimpse at the completely redesigned Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact. Generally speaking, the reception for both phones has been great with Sony finally ditching their massive bezel design. A key question remained however: How much will they cost?
Thanks to Sony Mobile’s German site, we now have an idea. The Xperia XZ2 will be €799 which roughly breaks down to $977 US. The European price is a full €100 more than last year’s Xperia XZ1.
As for the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact, it is slightly less at €599 or $732 US. That too is more expensive than last year’s model.
The question will be what the final pricing will be once these devices hit the United States. Chances are Sony will keep it simple and charge $899 and $599 respectively but that isn’t confirmed. Either way, they will certainly be towards the flagship pricing.
For those that don’t recall, internally, the two devices are virtually identical. They are powered by the Snapdragon 845 SoC, have 4GB of RAM and have 64GB of storage built-in. That storage can be expanded up to 400GB thanks to the MicroSD card slot. Both have a 19MP f/2.0 rear camera that can shoot an incredible 960 fps slow motion video, and a 5MP f/2.2 selfie camera on the front.
Display wise, the Xperia XZ2 has a 5.7″ Full HD+ display that renders 1080 x 2160 and is an 18:9 ratio. It is also HDR. The smaller XZ2 Compact has a 5.0″ Full HD+ display that renders at 1080 x 2160 as well. It too also supports HDR.
