Pre-orders for the Sony Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact are now live on Amazon sites across Europe. Amazon UK has the Xperia XZ2 priced at £699, with three colours on offer (Liquid Black, Liquid Silver and Deep Green – no Ash Pink unfortunately) and a release date of 5 April 2018.

Amazon is also exclusively offering a dual SIM Xperia XZ2 in the UK as a separate listing, available in Liquid Black only, at the same price of £699. All of these handsets are have 4GB of RAM – the 6GB RAM version is available in Hong Kong and Taiwan only.

Amazon UK is listing the Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact at £529 with the same launch day of 5 April 2018. The handset is available in Black only, and again there is a separate listing at the same price for a dual SIM version. If you are interested in the Moss Green or Coral Pink colours, then head over to Clove, although their pre-order pricing for the Xperia XZ2 Compact is higher at £599.

In Amazon’s sites across Europe (France, Germany, Italy, Spain) the Xperia XZ2 is priced at €799, while the Xperia XZ2 Compact is priced at €599. There are small variances in pricing depending on which site you are looking at, but the above prices are the cheapest listed. However, unlike the UK, all colour options for each phone are listed. In Europe, the phone is expected to go on sale on 6 April 2018, one day later than in the UK, according to Amazon.

So, what do you think of this pricing? Is it what you expected? Do you plan to buy the Xperia XZ2 or XZ2 Compact? We’d love to hear your views below.

Thanks Liam and Max!
