Sony Mobile Taiwan opened pre-orders for the Xperia XZ yesterday and managed to sell out within 45 minutes. Sony was offering a special pre-order promotion where it included a number of freeibies including a DK60 USB Type-C Charging Dock, a 16GB USB Type-C OTG connector, a flip style leather case and a protective back cover. It is safe to say that this was enough of an incentive to see those pre-orders rolling in.
If you missed out on the offer, Sony will be including some extras for those that buy the phone on release in early October. This includes an additional year’s warranty (two years in total) and a Sony SBH70 Stereo Bluetooth Headset. The Xperia XZ will be sold at a recommended price point of NT$ 22,900 (£563, €655, $730) and launch early next month. The Xperia X Compact will launch this weekend in Taiwan for NT$ 14,900 (£366, €426, $475).
