Sony’s Newest Xperia XZ Pre-orders Sell Out In 45 Minutes In Taiwan

Sony hasn’t necessarily had the best year when it comes to smartphones. Many were quick to put the recent Xperia X lineup down becautilize of its drastic change over the previous Z models and higher-than-expected retail pricing; not to mention the lack of a fingerprint scanner in US variants of all Xperia Z models.

Sony’s pre-orders in Taiwan, however, for the Xperia XZ smartphone have already srecent out in only 45 minutes. Sony’s pre-order promotion offered early buyers a charging dock, 16GB USB-C storage connector, and two cases: one flip cover and a back cover. This was incentive enough for people to go nuts with pre-orders in HTC’s home country.

If you missed the first wave of orders, Sony is going to throw in some other extras like a pair of Bluetooth headphones (SBH70) and additional year of warranty for those who buy the phone once its released in October.

The Xperia XZ features a 1080p 5.2 inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) display, Snapdragon 820 Central Processing Units (CPU) paired with 3GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) in either 32 or 64GB of internal storage. That also includes the IP68 immersion protection that always came standard with all Xperia Z models. There’s a 23MP rear capturing camera capable of taking 4K video and a 13MP front facing camera. Note that the global model has a fingerprint scanner on the power key while the US variant will not feature this scanner.

Will you be pre-ordering the Xperia XZ once it becomes available locally?

Thanks for the tip!
