New Zealand is finally getting the new Sony Xperia XZ Premium phone and I’m excited.

When it comes to bells and whistles this one has the lot.


Sony Mobile has today announced the availability and pricing of its most groundbreaking smartphone to date, the Xperia XZ Premium. The latest addition to the Xperia X series family, the Xperia XZ Premium, will be available for purchase online and in-store today from exclusive carrier partner, Spark, and directly through Sony stores and online. Consumers can get their hands on the Xperia XZ Premium in Luminous Chrome across all outlets at the price of NZ$1,199 RRP. Announced at Mobile World Congress in February, the Xperia XZ Premium features the new Motion Eye – a camera so advanced it captures motion that the human eye can’t see, a beautiful 4K HDR display, super-fast download speeds, a stunning loop design, and even more intelligent features.  pf11-slideshow-06-45188690cd26813f76d924f1607dd406
