Sony has announced that it plans on releasing the Xperia Z1 (C6903) and SmartWatch 2 in South Korea. Sony has traditionally steered clear of South Korea, which is understandable given it is Samsung’s home market.
As well as being sold through the Sony Store, the Xperia Z1 will be available from carrier KT (Korea Telecom). Sony did sell the Xperia Z in South Korea, but only direct to consumers through the website. The Xperia Z1 is priced at KRW 749,000 (£431, €517, $704) and the SmartWatch 2 will be KRW 219,000 (£126, €151, $206).
Thanks ki-hyun kim!
