Xperia V will be priced under €500 in Italy

in Xperia V

Sony Mobile is keeping official launch date and pricing details for the Xperia V (LT25i) very close to its chest. We’ve reported on Swedish retailers putting the handset up for pre-order for around the €500 + VAT mark, but it looks like it will be a bit cheaper when the Xperia V hits Italian shores.

The official Sony Mobile Italian team tweeted that the Xperia V will cost between €400 and €500 when it launches later this year (no specific timeline was given). This would place it slightly cheaper than the Xperia T/TX. We’ll bring you more concrete launch news when we have it.

    I think Sony has always been testing new OS possibility, but doesn’t mean it will be released, like Xperia Play for example

    The V sounds like a good device but it will be outdated by Sony itself even before it reaches the market; When you replace your flagship models as often as every six months and you delay several months to bring them to the market, then they will inevitably stumble on the presentation of your next flagship models. This is what will happen to the V. It’s almost a flagship model, but by the time it will really hit the market, Sony will have released or will be just before releasing the rumoured Odin.
    So, only one line-up per year is more than enough and please release the models timely.

    I agree with you, but Odin will come (international version) Q3 2013, so there is a lifespan for V (yes, quite short but still some).

    What I would like to see is bringing camera goodies (Superior scenes, HDR, various filters) to T/TX, don’t need more than that :)


  • 400 to 500 including VAT?

    dear XB…

    The source of this news is this article of Kevin Dimatteo (the same of twitter) :
    I hope the source is added to this article greetings

    Done! :)

    Price in Germany:
    White: € 486,55 +VAT
    Black: € 508,40 + VAT

  • Yes, in Italy we always mention prices including VAT (which is IVA in Italian). I can confirm that on the italian Sony Mobile page they’re telling us the same price range since the end of August.

    >.< I keep reading these posts with US/UK/EURO/ASIA prices and get so depressed. Brazilian taxes over electronics are so absurdly abusive, I paid R$ (Brazilian Reals, our currency) 1.700,00 for my Arc and will likely pay something around the same ballpark for my V.

  • Thanks! And how much is IVA in Italy? I am trying to guess the price without it :)
