The two products were announced earlier today at Mobile Asia Expo, but the company did not mention any prices for either device. Sony did say that the Xperia Z Ultra will be available in the third quarter of the year, while the SmartWatch 2 would hit stores in September.
However, Sony France and Sony Netherlands have shared more details on Twitter and via local press releases, respectively, about the new devices.
Sony France said on Twitter that the Xperia Z Ultra will be available in the region in Q3 with prices starting at €729, or around $954:
Sony Netherlands said via a press release that the handset will be slightly cheaper in The Netherlands, at €719 or around $940.
Needless to say, these are the unlocked prices for the device, so you can expect the handset to be more affordable from mobile operators with new contracts.
Considering these prices, it’s probably safe to say that the Xperia Z Ultra will cost around 700 in Europe, so a $700 price for the U.S. should be expected.
Speaking about the U.S. market, it’ll be interesting to see whether the Xperia Z Ultra will be picked up by local carriers. Comparatively, the Xperia Z was initially available in the region only from Sony, with T-Mobile announcing it only about a week ago.
As for the Sony SmartWatch 2, it’s also Sony France that revealed its pricing. The new smartwatch will apparently cost €199, or around $260, and hit stores in late September in the country:
