The Sony Xperia XZ2 and the Xperia XZ2 Compact phones made ready for pre-order on B&H last month are now available at Best Buy and Amazon. They are up for pre-order from Best Buy beginning tomorrow, April 13 until the 19th. The official release will be April 20. In case you missed it, we’ve got our hands-on feature. We noted how it’s time for a change with Sony deciding on a different look. The phones now boast a rear fingerprint sensor plus an 18:9 display.
One thing that didn’t change: the high price tag. The two phones are priced at $799.99 and $649.99 (Compact). Aside from Best Buy, Amazon will also release the phone by May 20.
