You can pre-order the Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact for US$799 and US$649

Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact Android flagships coming to the US for US$799.99 and US$649.99
Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact
Expected to hit Europe on April 5, the 5.7-inch Sony Xperia XZ2 and the 5-inch Xperia XZ2 Compact can be pre-ordered in the US from B&H Photo for US$799.99 and US$649.99. Both come with four color options: green, black, silver, and pink. Sadly, there is no information on their date of arrival for now.

Unveiled back in February at MWC 2018, the Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact might not be exactly at the level of the other contemporary flagships in terms of design, but they definitely pack quite a punch when it comes to speed and features. Sadly, the Sony Xperia devices are not quite popular in the United States, but most of the brand's local fans will surely be delighted to see the latest additions to this lineup up for pre-order in the US.

For now, B&H Photo looks like the only retailer to have product pages up for the Xperia XZ2 and the Xperia XZ2 compact. The prices are US$799.99 for the 5.7-inch Xperia XZ2 and US$649.99 for the 5-inch Xperia XZ2. Leaving aside the dimensions, these two handsets share most of the hardware specs and features: the top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor, 4 GB RAM, 64 GB internal storage, 5 MP selfie shooter, 19 MP back camera, stereo speakers, dust and water resistance, NFC connectivity, fingerprint reader, Bluetooth 5.0, and Android 8.0 Oreo. However, the more expensive Xperia XZ2 is the only of the two that features dual-SIM support and wireless charging, also having a larger battery capacity (3,180 mAh vs. 2,870 mAh for the XZ2 Compact). 

The color choices available for the Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact are green, black, silver, and pink. Sadly, there is no blue or red option yet, but given Sony's delay in adopting the popular smartphone design trends, we can hope that the Xperia XZ3 lineup will add these two colors to the list as well.

These two new Xperia handsets are expected to launch in Europe on April 5, so they will probably hit the US by the end of the month as well. For Sony's sake, we can only hope that more retailers will have them in store by then.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
