Sony unveiled its Xperia XZ2 handset back in February this year. It features compact bezels, a taller display, and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 processor – the core ingredients of a flagship smartphone in 2018. Sony has been selling it for $800 and if you thought that was expensive, wait until you hear the price tag for the Xperia XZ2 Premium. Sony has today confirmed the price and release date for the Sony XZ2 Premium.

Sony is going to start taking pre-orders for the upgraded version of the XZ2 in the United States from July 9th. Customers will be able to place an order at Amazon and Best Buy. It’s going to start shipping the handset from July 30th.

Sony’s XZ2 Premium features a 5.8 inch 4K HDR display and the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 chip as the XZ2. It also features a dual camera system at the back with a 19 megapixel color and 12 megapixel monochrome sensor which offers a maximum ISO of 51,200.

The handset also comes with 6GB of RAM, a 3,540mAh battery, a Dynamic Vibration System which makes the handset rumble along with the media that’s playing on the handset, a dedicated camera shutter button, 4K video recording capability, and more. It doesn’t feature a 3.5mm headphone jack, though.

If you’re interested in picking one up, be ready to spend $999 on the unlocked model that will be sold through Amazon and Best Buy.
