Announced at CES 2014, the Xperia Z1 Compact will soon be available in various European markets, and Sony is already getting ready to offer users some sweet deals in the region.
As long as buyers are interested in purchasing the device for full price, they can head to local Sony online stores in various European countries, and pre-order a discounted device – the device is also available for pre-order from other retailers.
Keep in mind that the Xperia Z1 Compact, while a smaller Android device that could be easily mislabeled as a Mini device with uninteresting specs, it’s actually a flagship Sony handset, packing most of the specs offered by it’s bigger brother, the Xperia Z1. The Xperia Z1 Compact has a smaller 4.3-inch 720p display and a smaller battery, but otherwise it’s got all the hardware the Xperia Z1 has from processor to camera to memory – check out our video hands-on with the device from CES.
That said, here’s what the off-contract handset will cost you depending on European country:
- France: €499 after €50 refund
- Germany: €499 bundled with a €1 Sony Wireless Headset
