sony xperia z5 & z5 compact & Z5 premium aa 18

The Sony Xperia Z5 smartphones haven’t even been released yet, but it seems the Japanese manufacturer has changed its mind and decided to cut down the prices before launch. The Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium were expected to cost £549.00, £599.00 and £699.00, relatively. Those cash sums definitely seemed fair, but we suppose Sony figured they could do a little better; now the official site shows a completely different set of prices.

Instead, the new pricing goes as follows. The Sony Xperia Z5 Compact carries a £429.00 price tag. Meanwhile, the Xperia Z5 will set you back £549.00 and the Premium version will go for £629.00.

Of course, these are the UK prices. We are still not sure if a similar discount will be applied on devices from any other markets. I suppose we will have to wait for more availability details to show up. Until then, you can check out our hands-on content on the Sony Xperia Z5 Compact, Xperia Z5 and Xperia Z5 Premium. The latter happens to be the first smartphone to get a 4K resolution display, making it one of the most stunning mobile screens around. The other two handsets also offer great specs and awesome functionality… as well as value, now.

Are any of you wondering why Sony did this? Maybe they simply want to stay more competitive in this fierce market. Whatever the reasoning behind these price reductions is, we definitely won’t be complaining! Are any of you buying one of these? I am seriously considering upgrading to an Xperia Z5.
