Sony's 4K Xperia XZ2 is Coming to the UK on 31st August

By Tom Pritchard on at

Back in April Sony announced the Xperia XZ2 Premium, but revealed that it had "no plans" to bring the phone to the UK. For reasons that were never actually divulged, and probably wouldn't make sense if they were. Now that's changing, and Sony has announced the phone will be coming here on 31st August.

As it turns out the phone will be available to purchase SIM free from Amazon, with a £799 pricetag attached. If you want it on contract you'll have to go to EE, who has a variety of deals in place with prices starting at £48 a month and £50 upfront. That particular plan comes with unlimited calls and texts plus 4GB of data each month.

In case you forgot the Xperia XZ2 Premium comes with a 5.8-inch 4K HDR display, a Snapdraon 845 chipset, 6GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, microSD expansion,a 13MP front camera, a dual-lens rear camera (19MP in colour and 12MP black and white), a 3,540 mAh battery, wireless charging, plus IP65/68 dust and water resistance.

It currently runs Android Oreo, but Sony has confirmed that it will be getting an upgrade to Pie in November. There's also no headphone jack, but if it's any consolation there's no notch either - because Sony hasn't opted for a bezel-free design like some companies. [TechRadar]
