Sony cuts Z5 prices less than a week after launch


Prices for Z5, Compact and Premium version of new flagship have been slashed by between £50 and £120 on official website

Sony appears to have cut the cost of its new flagship smartphone, the Xperia Z5 range, less than a week after it was launched at IFA in Berlin.

The Japanese manufacturer unveiled the Z5 Compact, the Xperia Z5, and Z5 Premium to a packed Hall 20 at the Berlin tech conference on September 2, with prices listed as £549.00, £599.00 and £699.00 respectively.

It appears the manufacturer has changed its mind about pricing as it has now cut the cost of all three devices on its official UK website.

The price of the Xperia Z5 has dropped by £50 to £549, while the Z5 Premium, which comes with a 4K screen, has had £70 knocked off its cost, and will now sell for £629.00. The most drastic cut is to the Z5 Compact, which has seen its price fall by £120 to £529.

All three devices became available for pre-order on September 4 ahead of an October release. Mobile News contacted Sony about the price drop but has not received a response.
