Sony-Xperia-Z41

Following its announcement last month, the Sony Xperia Z3+ is now available to pre-order in the UK. A number of local retailers are offering the handset, with contracts beginning at £32 per month and unlocked handsets starting at £549.

High-street retailer Carphone Warehouse has managed to secure itself exclusivity over the Ice Green colour option. Other colors are limited to just black and white. Its contracts begin at £32.50 with a £50 fee or £40 each month if you want to avoid any upfront costs.

The company is also offering a “Hi-Res” bundle, which includes MDR10-RC headphones, a three-month subscription to Tidal and six hi-res audio album downloads for free. The Xperia Z3+ is available on EE, O2, Vodafone, and Carphone Warehouse’s own iD network.

If you are in the market for an unlocked smartphone, Clove if offering the handset for £549, Unlocked Mobiles has the Z3+ for £554, while Amazon has a similar price tag of £550. Most of these companies will ship the Xperia Z3+ sometime in mid-to-late June, while Amazon states that it will be released on July 13th.

In case you missed any of our launch coverage, the Sony Xperia Z3+ comes with a 5.2-inch 1080p screen, Snapdragon 810 SoC, 3GB of RAM, 32GB internal memory with expandable microSD slot, 20.7MP rear camera, 5MP front camera, and a 2,900mAh battery. Android 5.0 Lollipop is also included right out of the box.

Although it heavily resembles its predecessors, the Xperia Z3+ is still a worthwhile upgrade if you are coming from an older flagship or mid-range smartphone.
