You thought the Xperia XZ was expensive in your region – it costs $1,250 in Brazil

by XB on 3rd October 2016

in Xperia XZ series

xperia-xz-brazil-thumbThose that have complained how expensive the Xperia XZ (F8331) is in their country, should spare a thought for Sony fans in Brazil. The Xperia XZ has just gone on pre-order over at Sony Brazil and it will cost a whopping BRL 3999.99, which is equivalent to just under $1,250. Sony is throwing in free Sony MDR XB650BT headphones and the handset will be released on 13 October.


Thanks Serajr!

    Oh my Sony-God!

  • Vuyo Ncube

    That’s more Brazil’s fault where they tax everything to the moon.

  • Rat
  • At least Sony is offering the MDR XB650BT in all regions. Here in Portugal is the first time they do it

  • Great Dude

    Is Sony Xperia XZ ,the only expensive phone in Brazil comparing to other regions or is it all phones are more expensive than other regions because of taxes ?

  • ryq24

    In hong kong they only include a knapsack and a water bottle.

  • Alvin

    Still cheaper than an iPhone 7 Plus.

  • Taquidi

    Brazil’s taxes are preposterous, so all tech products are more expensive indeed, but that’s also an excuse all companies use to ask sky-high prices on their products.
    For comparative purposes, an iphone 6S 32GB costs $1,113. A Samsung S7 edge, $1,145.
    The MDR XB650BT headphones alone costs $310. I pre-odered my Xperia XZ today for $1,115 with the MDR XB650BT headphones included.

    Doesn’t matter how much it costs. Sales will still be abysmal. Because there’s very little marketing/retail presence.

    And competitors offer a better product at a similar price, or a similar product at a much cheaper price.

  • Geese Howard

    But it is way cheaper compared to what Brazil is getting..

  • Onil

    I just bought one here in Dubai for AED 2,299 or around USD 625 including a h.ear go speaker worth AED 799 or around USD 215. And that is the 64 GB version. Sweet deal!


    i am from INDIA, i thing very costly

  • SM

    In India, it’s aroubd 50K which is 750$ but in Brazil, its 1250$ which is approx 84K INR. Now, compare yourself.

  • Apparently it’s $800 pre-order in Sony’s Russian shop, and without the headphones. Eh.

  • Ichsan Rismunandar

    Same as Playstation 4 when it was launched i guess…

  • Humming Mob

    I think UAE is the one of the cheapest country can get the XZ right now. Here the cost is AED 2299, which is equivalent to $626 with sony NC headphone free.

  • HAWX

    Brazil have some quality shemales but it doesn’t have anything to do with the price lol.

  • Sergio V. Arroyo Díaz

    Can you give me the page where you bought it, please?

  • Onil

    I bought it from Sony Boutique Dubai Mall but the offer is also available here

  • Sergio V. Arroyo Díaz

    Thanks, but the offer is no longer available :(

  • Onil

    What a shame! If you live in UAE just visit any Sony Boutique Store. I just got mine today. They have other promotion AED 2299 plus 8000mAh power bank and 64GB memory card but insist for the h.ear go speaker or Bluetooth headphones.

  • Sergio V. Arroyo Díaz

    Im from Spain, I need a online shop with EU shippings

  • mukul verma

    in India, its costing is Rs 51990, pre order offer of smartband talk worth 8990 free..

  • Jeffnai

    país de bosta.

  • I mean, Brazil taxes EVERYTHING ridiculously, gotta get back SOME of the money they lost from the Olympics and spent to keep protesters at bay.

  • fried_egg

    Brazil is a closed economy, with restrictions on money movement, investment & imports… until they liberalise their economy it is their own doing that makes things expensive… they have wasted their oil windfall… now they are paying for their greed.

  • Capitan_Beto

    Dont worry…. Just wait until Argentina announce the XZ. The taxes will take it to the number 1 in this ranking comparison. Maybe it will cost 1450 $us…. Just wait maybe in 6 month’s we’ll have the announce haha haha. Will are always late here…

  • paul_cus

    But look, free headphones….

  • Abrar Zahin Shahriar

    That’s the smart thing to do for a growing economy.

  • Vuyo Ncube

    Doesn’t that stifle consumer spending?

  • Capitan_Beto

    I know is of topic, but tonight here in Buenos Aires Sony present the X family…. Maybe this could be another headline or an article here. Sony Xperia X cost 1187$us (17999ars pesos) maybe de XZ reach 1,5k $us….

  • Marinko Agic

    It is in preorder 49990 and free gift worth 8990.

  • Marinko Agic

    No it is in Croatia,Europe in preorder 650$ and free gift wort 300$ Xperia E5

  • Marinko Agic

    49.990 in preorder with free gift worth 8990

  • Abrar Zahin Shahriar

    Encourages consumers to buy local products. And a whole lot of other things. TL;DR Brazil will benefit in the long run.

  • Harut Hajin

    Huge taxes won’t make better economy, people paying with national currency, government need US dollars for higher GDP, it comes from exporting, and from tourism.
    Like our neighbor, Republic of Georgia, very low taxes, example if I import Infiniti Q50 in Turkey, I must pay 14700 $, but in there only 1900 $

  • Sridu

    Since there is not much money spent on marketing, Sony should provide $100 Loyalty bonus for exchange of old Sony phones. This would help retain customers. By pricing competitively in Japan they’ve only retained their Japanese customers. Sad.

  • Humming Mob

    Wow!! Very good offer

  • underwood

    As a Brazilian, I guarantee that you’re wrong. Taking smartphones as an example, there’s only one national manufacturer and they only have a midrange that, guess what, is expensive too. For over 30 years this country had high taxes and no one is seeing any benefit whatsoever.

  • Chris

    That is absolutely ridiculous! Wow Sony sure messed up big time with the XZ. Not sure what they can even do anymore to compete with other companies. It’s sad because I am a huge fan of Sony but when I know I can get a phone with equivalent or better specs for a much cheaper price, well that just says that it’s time to move on and try something new.

  • Taquidi

    Forest Blue Xperia XZ is sold-out in Brazil now, Black and Platinum still available.

  • Malih

    I think it’s because Sony stopped manufacturing phones in Brazil ( which means they now have to include taxes that was not previously imposed upon Sony phones

  • Bezels for the win !

    I read somewhere that they are giving with the XZ free XA …supposedly in south Africa though … and in Croatia there is free Xperia E5

  • Fadi Still

    I have used only sony mobiles since the T68, but nowadays it’s way out of my budget.

  • iCeQubeTomato

    and for a brick with 3GB of ram…….

  • Carlos Pepetox

    Nothing compare to every electronic equipment in Venezuela

  • Steve12321

    It’s actually “cheaper” than I expected. The Note 7/iPhone 7 Plus arrived at about R$4500 (about USD 1400). The norm here is usually this: the local price (converted to USD) is about twice the international retail price in dollars.

  • Great Dude

    Thanks for info
