Xperia Z2 pre-orderThe Sony Xperia Z2 has already been available to pre-order from the official Sony Mobile Store for some time now. We are now seeing that the launch date seems to be firming towards early April, with many retailers pointing to a release during week commencing 7 April 2014.

In the UK, this comes at a SIM-free price of £599.99, but Sony will throw in the SRS-BTX300 wireless NFC speaker for free too. Sony is including the Sony Digital Noise Cancelling Headphones (MDR-NC31EM) as part of the retail contents and we expect this to be included with all Xperia Z2 units.

The Sony Mobile Store is doing similar promotions all over Europe, for example a free Smartband is included in Germany and Sweden. In Poland, Sony is throwing in a free DK36 magnetic charging dock, whilst in France, Italy and Spain Sony will include the BM10 Bluetooth Receiver. In Norway, retailer Komplett is also offering a free SmartBand once you pre-order the Xperia Z2.

In the UK, if you are after the handset SIM-free and don’t want to go for Sony Mobile’s offer then head over to Clove, Handtec or Unlocked Mobiles who are all offering the handset for around £550 and will include the SRS-BTM8 Speaker free. As mentioned earlier, the MDR-NC31EM headphones are included in all retail boxes.

Carphone Warehouse and Phones4U also recently opened up pre-orders in the UK, the latter will include free a SRS-BTX300 Wireless Speaker and 50% off the price of a SmartBand. Phones4U has exclusivity of the white colour in the UK, with carier O2 taking exclusivity over purple. Other UK carriers to pick the Xperia Z2 up include Vodafone and EE.

Thanks Cezary and Geir!

    Sony Mobile Singapore just confirmed yesterday that they would be launching the Sony Xperia Z2 in end-March at the same launch price as Sony Xperia Z1, why did it changed to April 7 (at least for other markets)?

  • kaostheory

    Anyone know if the earbuds will be included with the Z2 tab? Only Sony uses this application so far as I know, although I see this becoming an industry standard.

  • XperiaBlog

    It hasn’t changed for other markets, we’ve added “European” to the title to make it clear this is for Europe only.

  • jonyah

    What about in the US? Come on Sony, we want it too.

  • torqe

    No USA yet again?

  • kaostheory

    You have no loyal carriers, except T-Mobile sort of. Not Sony’s fault.

  • XperiaBlog

    Unfortunately not.

  • Chew Loh Seng

    Thanks for the clarification Xperia Blog for other readers here. :D

  • lightninglion

    At least sell the unlocked version in the USA I am desperate to get this phone, and how the fck sony plans on being no 3 maker of smart phones if they don’t launch in USA.

  • Mokhtar Mouhib

    in russia plz ?

  • I’ll be waiting for a price drop then import. The European model is compatible with T-Mo and AT&T LTE. Though the pre-order offers in Europe are tempting…

  • Rambo

    In Jupiter pls? Mars perhaps?

  • JHMBB2

    Again with the lack of a US release. I’m expecting around July if I’m seeing the trend right.

  • lightninglion

    i almost pre-ordered, then i looked at my tuition i have to pay for college, i was like fuck this ill wait when it gets cheap.

  • jonyah

    Sony doesn’t need a loyal carrier, they need to release on as many carriers as possible. When they do get it out there, the sales will make those carriers loyal. I will be importing one if I have to.

  • kaostheory

    You need to start calling your carrier. They order the phones, not the other way around.

  • Killuha

    Again Europ does not include Switzerland at least not on the sony Website -.-
    rly this is annoying.

  • Mike

    Come awn VERIZON…pick up the phone and call SONY…mkay??

  • Micro

    oh well, it got priced exactly the same as Z1 (for pre-order in Europe), and the Z1 got slightly cheaper when the Z2 came out (ok, when it got announced actually), so… you possibly gonna finish the collage before it gets cheap ;) (but I really hope you can get this monster earlier)

  • JK

    Very interesting thing I just come across at – I could choose any number of pants and shirts (from the list) at very heavy discount rates (up to 75% off online) – more we buy more discount – I never seen this before.
