Xperia XZs Dual hits pre-order in USA; launches on 5 April

by XB on 3rd April 2017

in Xperia X series


We can confirm that Sony Mobile is set to launch the dual SIM variant of the Xperia XZs (G8232) into the United States, as the handset has just hit pre-order through Amazon.com for $699.00. The Xperia XZs is available to purchase in three colours (Black, Warm Silver, Ice Blue) and will be released on 5 April. We have included links to each colour below.

This is the first time that Sony has officially launched a dual SIM variant into the USA, it means that users will get internal storage of 64GB (versus 32GB in the single SIM model). However, Sony uses a hybrid SIM tray for the Xperia XZs, which means that if you do decide to use two SIMs, you cannot also use a microSD memory card at the same time. This is why Sony advertises the phone as “dual SIM with 64GB onboard memory or single SIM with up to 256GB expandable with MicroSD card”.

The handset bands will be compatible with GSM carriers such as AT&T and T-Mobile. Do let us know if you plan to stick an Xperia XZs pre-order in the comments below. If not, let us know what is holding you back.

Sony Xperia XZs (Warm Silver) – $699.00

    without fp scanner??
    right now s7 available in US at $500 or even less! s7 edge at $600!
    reason to buy XZs over s7 /s7 edge on such a high price?

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Precisely. I think this is bit absurd. New camera and 1GB more ram. That’s it

  • Juan Carlos

    And 64 GB of base storage

  • razorg

    That still doesn’t justify the high price, for a Snapdragon 820 device (not even Snapdragon 821)…

  • hansip

    those new camera MP count and the only 1000fps capable phone camera in the market, even S8 can’t do it. Sure the price is not making any sense, but since when such top device get sensible pricing at launch? If we ever gets logical, we bought all the Xiaomis already..

  • 02Yo02

    What about us Verizon Wireless Customers!! :( I was hoping the phone was gonna be compatible with VZW Technology :( I didn’t want to but it seems I’m getting the GS8 instead.

  • Wolf0491

    probably not gonna happen in the near future. Not just for sony but almost all companies except sammy, moto, lg, htc, and google.

  • Wolf0491

    you can get regular XZ around 500 probably if ya trying save money and still want sony

  • 02Yo02

    That sucks for people like me… I’m a power user and because of it I have to master reset my phone every moth… and truth be told: Samsung phones are good until the 2nd or 3rd Software update then the phone slows down considerably. Sony phones in the other hand, are more durable in that area.

  • Wolf0491

    Trust me I know that’s why I don’t buy them. My fiance phone starts being laggy after few months (S7 edge) . This really depends where you live but I would consider going GSM like ATT. Where I live att and Verizon have basically no difference but could be different by you. I have a work phone from Verizon and personal att and literally same exact signal almost everywhere.

  • MoYeung

    What about Canada?

  • Moisés

    Price drops to 490 before IFA

  • Justo Belgrano

    So the only difference between the US and international version is the FP scanner disabled by software?

  • Moisés

    Yes…

    Single sim is 32gb
    Dual is 64gb ( hybrid slot)

    Sony does not charge more for extra 32gb of he dual one…
    Always same price.

  • Justo Belgrano

    But US version is always cheaper than international version on Amazon. But this time there is no difference in hardware as both are G8232

  • iia3ezu

    That price for something that doesn’t have the Snapdragon 835. LOL.

  • iia3ezu

    I think there’s no need to complain.

    That’s the way Sony Mobile wants to conduct its business: sell few units, but high profit margin per unit sold.

    This was actually bragged about on this blog, about a year ago:

  • xXENDER FREAKXx

    You can just buy Xperia XZ. Well it cost cheaper than before due to the fact that new phones are coming out. Xperia XZs is just the RAM and the 19MP Motion Eye™ that is new only. So why don’t get Xperia XZ? It also have good specs

  • xXENDER FREAKXx

    Yes and it is enough for daily usage

  • Moisés

    I was reading about XZs on Android Central. The article says the fingerprint story is because the deal between Sony and Verizon. One more year and contract is over , so Sony may be able to use fingerprint in USA.

    http://m.androidcentral.com/sonys-impressive-xperia-xzs-available-apr-5-you-should-wait-premium

  • Moisés

    Xz dual is 64 too

  • Moisés

    Every country has own price…

    Here we have X and X Dual … X Dual is 64gb , same hybrid slot. But both cost same.

    That is what I mean.

  • Ahmed Fakher

    So expensive, lets be realistic here i have XZ and i personaly think its a waste of money, u can buy a cheaper phone with similiar specs from a different brand.

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    I thought like you trying to find another brand, BUT this went out not so simple, Sony has their advantages:
    – clean and close to stock UI unlike Huawei with bizzare things
    – stereo-speakers, yes, maybe they are not so loud, but I watching videos 90% indoors, so stereo is much better than single one from majority of others.
    – not WOW-displays, yes, but also not AMOLED with burn-ins after 3-6 months, just Google for Google(lol) Pixel screen burn-in
    – Water-resistant
    – Solid design, as for me – the best
    – Camera is the only disadvantage here

  • JC

    FP scanner is there, just disabled via software.

  • JC

    Hopefully, and maybe then they can invest more on marketing in the US.

  • JC

    What about the 960 fps video camera?

  • JC

    Please tell me which other phone offers 960fps video recording? Or maybe even better an affordable commercial video camera that does this as well?

  • JC

    Does it also have a 960fps camera?

  • MoYeung

    AMOLED doesn’t really “burn in”, it’s the pixels that die over time . Use your phone more and it dies faster.

  • JC

    That’s even more expensive than my Z5P, which I bought about 10 months after it was originally released.

    Wonder how much will they ask for the XZP?

  • bobeobi gzigzigzeo

    Yeah, I know, just using common terms, but 2 months too fast, I can’t afford new device every couple of months

  • I’m not gonna had my breath for that one. Sony is pretty much only survived by Playstation and other people buying their camera modules,… and making their cameras SIGNIFICANTLY better than Xperia cameras. It’s insane.

  • Ahmed Fakher

    Never heard of an amoled that burned in after 6 months, many friends of mine have samsung devices. None of them has burned in, some have broken but still working.
    I like sony UI its nice, u hate how slow my xz charging is!!

  • Ahmed Fakher

    Hehe i bought my xz for its camera altho im not a photographer its camera is great but i would nevery buy a phone for its camera again!

  • Is that even relevant? Because performance wise, the difference is INTANGIBLE. The camera is the real make or break metric here.

    P.S. If you value your privacy, be thankful Sony hasn’t activated their fingerprint reader yet. The US courts can legally FORCE YOU TO GIVE UP YOUR FINGER TO BE READ, but they can’t force you to give up your pin or password, especially when it’s encrypted.

    “Instead, the task that Diamond was compelled to perform—to provide his fingerprint—is no more testimonial than furnishing a blood sample, providing handwriting or voice exemplars, standing in a lineup, or wearing particular clothing,” the [Minnesota] appellate court found.” From https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2017/01/court-rules-against-man-who-was-forced-to-fingerprint-unlock-his-phone/

  • Woody UK

    £649 per order on Amazon UK for XPZ

  • KS Goh

    Amoled screen display quality degrades over time

  • JC

    Well I can understand what you mean from a XZ-user point of view.

  • smith0100

    I love Xperia but hybrid SIM tray is deal breaker. I don’t know WHY would Sony do this. It makes the Xperia look so cheap.

  • xXENDER FREAKXx

    No but Xperia XZ is about the same specs as XZs. If u want the 960fps function get XZs

  • Chaturanaga Manchanayake

    Yea that’s why I said new camera. But it is expensive. They should’ve gone with SD821. I guess they wanted to cut price.

  • Ahmed Fakher

    U sure? Why didnt any of the well known anroid sites mention that! Sorry bro, but its unbelievable. Many companies are using amoled screens for their devices, including google.

  • Shamoy Rahman

    Price will fall to $500 in a few months, Sony only prices its phone really expensive at launch.

    Very disappointed about the first XZs reviews. The camera seems to be worse than XZ in single shot mode. Sorry but if they wan to stay in the game they have to beat Samsung with their own sensor. But what can you expect from a camera when even the spare part costs less than $40? Apparently no lenses that match the sensor’s capabilities…
