Sony Xperia 5 III: Protracted European launch date and pricing revealed
Sony announced the Xperia 5 III in April, its follow-up to last year's compact flagship. Initially, the company stated that the Xperia 5 III would arrive in summer 2021, but it is yet to reveal a specific launch date. A Sony Authorised Dealer has announced the price of the Xperia 5 III in the US, though.
Now, MediaMarkt has confirmed European pricing for the Xperia 5 III. As the screenshot below shows, Sony has priced the Xperia 5 III at €999, although MediaMarkt is offering some introductory discounts.
The cheapest reduces the Xperia 5 III to €899.10, albeit only until June 27. Alternatively, you can pick up the Xperia 5 III with an Anker PowerCore 10,000 mAh power bank for €924.59. All prices include taxes, for reference.
However, while the Xperia 5 III is available to pre-order, the smartphone will not ship until August 7, at the earliest. Sony's German website still states that the Xperia 5 III will be available soon, for some reason.
