Even though it’s not explicitly labeled as an early Black Friday “Deal of the Day”, Amazon’s latest Sony Xperia XZ discount will probably last a measly few hours from the time of our writing. One or two days tops, after which we fully expect the 5.2-inch flagship Android handheld to go back up to $650 or so.
First sold stateside for $700 unlocked, the expert cameraphone currently costs just $581.98 in a “Platinum”, aka silver, coat of paint, $589.19 in “Mineral Black”, or $599.99 if you prefer the “Forest Blue” shade.
Best Buy has the same three colors on sale for a limited time both on and offline, charging however 600 bucks across the board, with GSM LTE connectivity covered by all authorized American retailers.
An evolved version of the underwhelming Xperia X Performance, the Sony Xperia XZ mainly stands out in the photography department, courtesy of a triple image sensing 23MP rear shooter and 13MP wide-angle lens selfie cam.
But you have to also commend the phone’s super-sharp Triluminos display, premium metal build with curved glass, water resistance, Snapdragon 820 processor, USB Type-C port, 3.5mm headphone jack, and microSD support.
